Compatible with SIP-based phone networks, including Ekiga, FWD, IPtel, and SIPphone, it works with a variety of VoIP-based phones, including software phones such as X-Lite from CounterPath, hardware phones and ATAs such as those from Snom or Grandstream. You can join today for free, and get started by using either a free, downloadable softphone program, or by purchasing an IP phone.

Using peering agreements with many major players in the VoIP market, IdeaSIP tries to ensure a maximum number of free calling options between users of various networks.
