I am not shilling but you can look at the parent company Fibernetics at:

 From what I can see, the free phone line is a VoIP service running 
through a software app installed on a PC.
What I do not see is the business model, i.e. how do they make money?

 From their FAQs:

Softphone Configuration
What do I need to do to get the softphone functioning properly after 
installing it?
Our softphone operates on UDP ports 13000, 13001, 5060, 5061, 6060 
and 6061. Please make sure these ports are opened in any firewall, 
internet security suites and hardware routers you may have in your home.

What's the catch? Do I need to enter a password, PIN number or listen 
to advertisements before I make my free call?
NEVER! We offer you free phone lines with zero catches. There will 
never be advertising, tricky dialling procedures or any other catches 
when it comes to making your free calls!

FYI: Fibernetics is also the parent company of 295.ca, http://295.ca/
