Skyline VoIP for Direcway

IP Dish is now offering toll-quality VoIP service anywhere within our coverage area. Unlike some VoIP services which offer poor voice quality and dropped calls and more, Skyline gives you crystal clear voice service with no dropped calls.

Skyline by IP Dish uses the latest in advanced VoIP technology to dedicate and reserve bandwidth for VoIP calls. By allocating dedicated bandwidth to each call on the satellite network, our Skyline service is second to none.

How does it work?

Using the Hughes DW6040 VoIP appliance, IP Dish will connect your voice calls back to our switching partner in the US. Your DW6040 will have up to 4 assigned US Telephone numbers, and has standard analog telephone ports to connect normal telephones. When you place a call, the DW6040 appliance works with our Hub equipment to reserve bandwidth for your call, and connects your call through our switching platform in the US. For incoming calls, our US switching platform will route these calls directly to your DW6040 appliance - again, reserving bandwidth to ensure the highest quality of voice service.

To utilize our skyline serivce, you will need:

  • IP Dish Premium or 256k Premium service
  • Hughes DW6040 Voice Appliance
  • Pre-paid voice balance with IP Dish

Rates and Charges

ONLY $.25 / min to the US and incoming!

Skyline rates are very competetive with other toll-quality voice options throughout our coverage area. All calls placed on the system are charged a Network Service Fee of $.25 / minute. Incoming calls and outgoing calls to the US are charged only $.25 / min for our network service fee. Calls to other international destinations are billed at $.25 / minute plus our very competetive International Rates.

There are no monthly charges, per line charges or other hidden costs. Just $.25 per minute for incoming and outgoing crystal-clear calls.

Our Network Service fee charge enables IP Dish to reserve bandwidth both on our satellite link and back to the US to ensure un-interrupted quality.
