VOIP Provider for home use - recommendations/experiences?
Since Google appear unlikely to bring Voice to .uk/.eu anytime soon, I'm in the market for a VOIP provider with one number/call hunt functionality. A couple of threads on here have mentioned Sipgate and I already know about Vonage.
Is there anyone else worth considering and what have experiences with using Sipgate/Vonage/other provider been like?

I use sipgate
TBH I don't use it much I set an account up with number and that's about it.
> Some ISP's do home VOIP (I think BT have a package)

I have used Vonage and currently I am using my ISP's (PlusNet) VOIP feature. Skype's looks good too, not sure about any others.

Vonage have very good service when it works, but the hardware they supply has had a fatal firmware flaw for over a year that can cause severe performance issues unless you reboot the VOIP gateway every few days. There appears to be no effort being made to fix it as it only affects a small proportion of customers, but unless you use different hardware I just can't recommend it. Real shame because otherwise their offering is very good.

AQL is probably also worth a look

Soho66.co.uk are very good, specifically for the smaller business and home user.
The UK support is great as well.
Highly recommended, check out the Fax to email service as well.

BT are discontinuing their VOIP when they release the next Home Hub later this year.
