As many have predicted for the last few years, free telephone service is here, today. You just can’t get it from your local phone company. You’ve got to use the Internet to connect to a service that can route your calls for free.
First to jump headfirst into the free phone action was Skype, offering free PC-to-phone calls for the rest of the year, and now Gizmo Project has joined Skype by creating their All Calls Free program. In case you’ve never heard of Gizmo Project, it’s a fantastic VoIP desktop communication tool for Mac, Windows, and Linux. As my VoIP industry buddy Andy Abramson points out here, this is probably a ploy aimed at acquisition of Gizmo’s parent company than it is an effort to build revenue, but only time will tell. Free calling is here, now, so don’t waste any time–get over to gizmoproject.com and download the newest version.
