Being able to cancel my Zoom subscription and throw my money over to 8x8 for their hosted Jitsi instances is a very, very nice feeling.
@craigmaloney Have you used 8x8 long enough to have opinions?
I have an old residential vonage account which is really expensive compared to other voip providers.
Especially since newer services are both cheaper and more featurefull..
@alienghic Not yet, but that they're continuing to improve Jitsi and make it a world-class product (and still open source) gives me hope.
I gave a donation to a local free software group hosting a public Jitsi Meet instance (my email and diaspora* providers are such volunteer groups too).
Going to use that till Jitsi Meet is available in FreedomBox. Then I can self-host.
These days, I'm doing most of my non-work video calls through Element though.
@craigmaloney I ran my own Jitsi instance from a VPS, it was real good, much better than Zoom in many ways. Aside from being encrypted, private, and FOSS, it was just more stable and had a better UX.
