Default Voxalot VoIP service stopping on 31st Dec

Hi,

Is it true that Voxalot is going to close after 31st Dec?

I received the email too, unfortunately Voxalot will be gone. Too bad, I liked the service and was pretty happy overall, their dial plans are the best.
So what is the alternative, who offers a similar service ?

I hear that SipSorcery dialplans are not user friendly, but then again, we don't really have an other alternative.

I still can't believe being without VoXalot one day!
Meanwhile, thinking about possible alternatives:

Libera Il Voip
LIV is my favourite, right behind VoXalot.
If you speak Italian, I think it's very easy to set up everything. But even if you don't speak Italian, you get around pretty well.
Besides a main number, you get 5 extensions.
It's possible to register VSP's, set up call back etc.
If you wish to sign up, you'll need a codice fiscale..

See also the LIV FAQ-page.

I was wary too, but I took advantage of their migration scheme that they are offering Voxalot members. Aaron built a dial plan for me based on my exported Voxalot settings. It works pretty well too. I had a couple of small queries (because of my lack of understanding of the syntax) and he was very quick to respond and offer constructive suggestions.

Now I have a template to play with. Having the basics set up for you certainly makes a nice introduction to their dial plans.

My problem is I use Betamax clones a lot and depending on which one offers the best rates to certain destinations I adjust the dial plans accordingly. Basically I don't have a fixed dial plan, I always adjust it and with Voxalot it's been easy. Right now I can just move my dial plans from Voxalot to SipSorcery, but once Voxalot is gone, like it or not, I have to do it the SipSorcery's way since we won't have Voxalot for fallback.

I'm a little concerned that they seem to use a Windows server rather than something in the *nix world. But otherwise they seem great and Aaron is very helpful.

I'm very happy to have made the move to SIPSorcery. Trouble is I am getting addicted to playing with the interface.
It's so much fun! Aaron responds to the forum posts every day and is very helpful as well as knowledgeable.

I will have to make the switch around Christmas when I will have some free time. How much time (days) does it take to get everything working properly (I am mostly concerned about the dial plans). Thanks.

P.S. I was hoping that someone might buy Voxalot, I guess it is not going to happen.
