VoipBuster beats SkypeOut's rates


There's a new kid in town in the VoIP game, and it's hitting Skype hard in the wallet — if you open an account and buy a single Euro ($1.27) worth of credit, you can place calls absolutely free to all points in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and a slew of other countries, plus low calling rates to a far larger list of nations. The client itself cannot be construed as feature-rich — there are no bells and whistles, no chat, no conference calling, presence information or other of the niceties that Skype provides. It's definitely stripped down calling, but free is a darn good price, although no one is quite sure how they're doing it or what the business model will be. The service is in beta (as all such things are these days), and call quality is reportedly excellent. If you try it out, let us know your experiences in the comments.

[Thanks, Jim]
