Hi Stefano and all,
If one person can't join we should look for other options. The other
phone server that we have you can call on a Plain Old Telephone System
(POTS) landline number in the Netherlands. As it is a service donated to
the Free Knowledge Institute we have less control and so far haven't got
external SIP access.
Here you go:
Now I imagine there are people who may find it expensive to call to the
Netherlands. If so, please follow the instructions regarding SIP and get
yourself an account at a service like freecall.com. That way you pay 0
(zero) cents per minute (!). In case of freecall, they do require to buy
an initial amount of credit (10 Euro i think).
Note that of course it is not my intention to make any advertising for a
specific company. Please feel free to use whatever service you like. We
haven't found any cheaper one yet ;-) The oldfashioned telecom operators
also work fine (but may charge you an arm and leg for international calls).
Hope this helps!
