Dialpad handles overseas calls to the USA

Dear Sir,

Stan DeFreitas should do his research more carefully. He is correct in stating that Dialpad [please note: link provided by LOSP web site] does not offer international calls.( meaning that I cannot be in the States and call Guyana). However, people can be in any part of the world and call any number in the USA and communicate. Go to the Website and see for yourself. I get calls from friends in Barbados at least once a week.

I have been following the dialogue regarding GT&T blocking calls on this site. I feel it is inappropriate and a blatant disregard for the freedom which the internet gives to all people all over the world.

GT&T obviously realizes that it may lose revenue because of this innovation, and implements the big stick method. I say ... wake up GT&T, don't cut your nose to spoil your face.

Check your research again, Stan.

Yours faithfully,
D. Maloney
