Sipgate to end VoIP services in Austria per 1 January 2014

Tuesday 24 December 2013 | 11:19 CET | News
Germany-based VoIP service provider Sipgate will end the VoIP service for its Austrian customers per 1 January 2014, reports Austrian newspaper Der Standard citing an e-mail sent to Sipgate customers. The reason for cancelling the service is that Sipgate has not received a licence to offer Austrian geographical numbers and the non-existence of number porting for fixed lines. Sipgate customers with a 0720 number can file for number porting until 31 December of this year and all customers can receive their call credit that has not been used.
