SIPphone, the company behind Gizmo Project says it is extending its All Calls Free calling plan to business users world wide. The company is especially targeting the small to mid-sized companies. The way it works, is that those who want to make phone calls have to ensure that the receiving party is also a Gizmo user, and if their PC client is disconnected, then the calls can be forward to their mobile/landline numbers linked to their Gizmo identity. There are many business specific features that come with this offering. I might review it later this week, and post the full review on Web Worker Daily.
The new offer of course, comes with free PC-to-PC calling, which is nothing special, and quite common place. It also allows free calling between companies that use the Asterisk PBX software. There a lot of companies selling pre-configured Asterisk PBXs including Digium which launched an Asterisk appliance last week. SIPphone makes money by selling long distance minutes, and is betting that if more people switch to these open source VoIP platforms, they will use it as a way to reach the PSTN/Mobile phones.
