How was the usage?
Well, I have to tell you that I was very nicely surprised. I used my free 30-day trial and all 100 call minutes. I made some calls using one of the free softphone application for mobile devices. The call quality was very high and the bills were much smaller than what I am used to.
However, I wasn’t able to use all features. There are just too many of them. But I must say that the usage experience is as it is supposed to be. VoIPstudio is a reliable and professional solution for a company of any size.
