Hi Emil and all the team at Jitsi,
We have been using Jit.si for a couple of years now and on the whole it works most of the time. One of us is based in Asia, the other two in eastern Europe.
Now, we have been looking at trying to move ourselves completely away from skype - we would like to port our us and UK numbers to a SIP provider. We have experimented with a few different UK based SIP providers. The problem here is we get quite high latency and dropping calls - one of the providers said that it may not be a good solution for us as none of us are in the UK and every call has to be routed through their servers.
We would prefer to support a Jit.si run SIP service - however since we haven't seen anything is on the cards we presume it is not going to happen anytime soon. One provider suggested these guys: flow route - however apparently we would need to run a PBX and we don't have this specialisation.
Do you have any suggestions on this?
On the Jit.si XMPP server - our experience is that it doesn't always 'answer' or we have dropping where one side can't hear the other. Immediately after, we can call on skype and have no problems. Problems seem more often when one side has a slightly slower connection but can happen even when there is no problem. Would it help us if one of us ran it on a server? We would be willing to pay something (reasonable) to get a reliable line. I'm sure there are plenty of others in a similar situation.
All in all a fantastic softphone!
All the best,
