Default Orange AT blocks Betamax, solution?? - 01-05-2013, 14:37

Hi,

since a fortnight Orange/One Austria seems to block the VoIP access numbers of Betamax and Viennacollect ViennaCollect - kostenlos telefonieren. Einfach 01/2651234 vorwhlen. - Willkommen

Does anybody know a solution for this issue?

The same problem started in Germany some years back with O2 and EPlus.
I remember a thread with pbxes or similar, but cannot find it.

THX

It might be worth having a callback service or two lined up as standby.

If you decide to setup your own callthrough service you can get a free Austrian DID from sipgate.at, who will assign a number from the 0720 or 0780 numbering ranges. Calls to these numbers are billed randomly - some Austrian operators bill them as fixed line calls, others like premium numbers. However a Vienna-based company has set up a gateway based on a regular fixed line number which allows calling sipgate.at numbers at fixed line tariffs.
Just replace the leading 0 by 01326:
072012345678 would become 013 26 72012345678
and
078012345678 would become 013 26 78012345678

Apart from an interruption that lasted a couple of weeks followed by a number change this gateway has been running reliably for more than 7 years now.

Just a heads-up that sipgate is discontinuing their Austrian service on December 31st of this year.

That's correct. The reason for their withdrawal from the Austrian market is the continuing rejection of the Austrian regulatory authority RTR to allow VoIP providers the assignment of geographical numbers while at the same time not regulating subscriber tariffs for the randomly billed non-geographical number range available to VoIP providers (0720). As a result costs for inbound calls are incalculable for the caller which has severly been impacting market acceptance for sipgate.at.
