Q. Can I make 111 calls on Voice?
A. Of course you can. The Stuff Fibre Voice service supports any local, national or tollfree calls, including those to emergency services.

The operator you speak to won't know your physical location so you will need to provide this information to them.
Q. Can I make International calls?
A. The Voice doesn't support calls Internationally, as we at Stuff Fibre believe there are many free or low cost options already available to help you connect to others overseas. And with Fibre you will find video calling also just got a lot better. You are still able to receive incoming calls from overseas.
