While most VOIP providers have been ignoring encryption concerns, one European SIP-based VOIP provider, Glootix, is doing something about it. However, their site is still a little sketchy about whether subscribers can use their own unlocked ATAs (analog terminal adapters, used to connect an analog phone through an Ethernet connection to the Internet). Of course, if SIP compatibility is not a concern and you’re willing to be limited to only accessing the service from a computer then Skype is another option since calls placed using that service are supposed to be encrypted until they reach Skype’s PSTN interconnection facility.
Glootix is offering a Europe Unlimited for 19.90 Euros for the first 10,000 subscribers (but only before March 1, 2006) – which includes Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, France, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland.
