\'IDPLDT launched ID-DSL on September 15 featuring very low overseas calling rates. ID-DSL stands for International Dialing for DSL.

When using their proprietary dialing software Voicepad, you pay only 8 cents a minute for all Small Biz plans, plan 3000 and plan 2500. You pay 12 cents a minute when using plan 1995 and plan 999.

Otherwise when you are using your telephone you pay 10 cents a minute for all Small Biz plans, plan 3000 and plan 2500. You pay 15 cents a minute when using plan 1995 and plan 999.

Here\’s the catch: there is a P50 monthly fee and lock-in period of 12 months. There\’s a promo (I don\’t know if it\’s already over) that gives you free two monthly fee.

You may want to subscribe to this service if:

  1. You don\’t know how to use Skype or any other VoIP softwares
  2. You don\’t like the flactuating quality of VoIP that may happen from time to time
  3. You want to use a phone instead of using headset with VoIP service
  4. You\’re a fan of PLDT services (you\’re a rarity!)

You will probably bail out of ID-DSL if:

  1. You discovered that Skype is cheaper
    You only pay only 2 US cents per minute for US calls, and there\’s no service fees.
  2. You prefer VoIP because you don\’t trust PLDT\’s bad reputation for customer support
  3. You don\’t like the lock-in period of one whole year
  4. You don\’t have a PLDT DSL subscription

Of course, this service is not for everyone. For more information, please visit the official PLDT DSL website.
