Advantages: Free calls to over 30 countries
Disadvantages: A little too popular
Hot Telephone allows its users to call over thirty different countries for the cost of your internet connection. One of these countries is England and I have saved about £50 using their free dialer to phone my friends.
To use this great service, you must first register with the website. Then, when you have logged in, and are ready to make your first free call, you have to download a small applet which will make the connection from your computer to whoever you are trying to contact. When the small java applet has been installed, you are then able to dial numbers and make your phone call. You will have to try re-dialing a few times because of the popularity of the service and that the quality might not be like a proper phone call, but hey, its free.
This is the perfect opportunity to contact old friends in other countries or just to save loads of money on your phonebill.
