For me i use the ISP I have my connection with, which is Internode.
I've got a Billion 7402VGP ADSL modem which has the VoIP and QoS
built into it.  I then just plug a normal phone into the modem.

Internode is not the cheapest VoIP provider but as all the VoIP traffic
sits on their network the quality is really good.  It's also reliable so
I don't hear complains, which is worth the few extra cents a month to
me.  To an average user, like me, it just sounds like a normal phone
call, no matter what we're doing on our 1500k
