The Disappearance of Really Cheap LD

Mark Evans

It's not much of a surprise that Videotron has terminated its $4.95 a month for 1,000 LD minute plan today after Bell Canada and Rogers stopped similar offers last month. With LD prices returning to 4¢ or 5¢ a minute for North American calls - rather than 0.5¢ - some consumers may start to see VOIP as a more viable option again. Given consumers don't seem to be interested in Web-based calling features, VOIP service providers had tried to use the idea low-cost LD as a major marketing tool. This opportunity, however, disappeared when Bell introduced its $5 for 1,000 LD minutes plan last year.

It is a good move and will help all expats make calls to their home countries. Hope the internet cafes can get this service so that they will not opt for any illegal VOIPs in future.I just want to inform everyone to a new web site called VoIP Spear ( to measure your QoS. It's the Internet's best and most accessible QoS testing service.
