I am currently using a DSL connection and there are no dial up connections that I can use to easily switch my computer to a fax machine.

Is there a good online service that can send a fax (PDF format to fax preferably) for me ( to/from any international place, in specific I want to be able to send a fax from Trinidad and Tobago to Canada and vice versa later on) ? I also want a cover page to be added and confirmation , is this possible ?

I tried faxzero.com, really annoying and takes forever.

I'm curious. What's annoying about faxzero? I have used it many times and it worked fine. I can see that if the receiving fax machine is busy then the sending can be slow. The good thing I found was that both .doc and .pdf files can be attached. –  grokus Jul 20 '10 at 3:46
@grokus it was mainly the sending and the confirmation. I have not been able to send any from their site. Delay notification took two hours and an additional hour after that to say it failed.I tried out efax and I liked it alot better. I ended up getting Pamfax in the end. It also had a desktop edition that allowed for a fax-in number integration with Skype. –  phwd Jul 20 '10 at 11:17

I've been really happy with efax.com. It's not free, but fairly cheep. It can handle PDF and other file types and works great. I believe you can also receive faxes as well, but have never needed that.

Faxzero (faxzero.com) allows you to send up to two faxes per day for free. Both .doc and .pdf files can be attached. –  grokus Jul 20 '10 at 3:44
Beware of their charging structure, they once tried (and gave up after I complained) to charge me 15 times for a fax that only successfully sent on the last attempt. Also, when you leave you have to speak to the customer retention people first - no option to do it online (at least not when I used it) –  Jon Hadley Aug 5 '10 at 18:16

I use Freefax to send free faxes from Israel. The site is in Hebrew only but you can try using Google translate to get over that hurdle.

+1 for Israel, I was just looking for that! –  ripper234 Sep 13 '10 at 23:05

PopFax.com offers very good internet fax service. I'm using it for a long time. The price is great, it is reliable, saves a lot of time and leaves me extremely organized. More information on FAQ page.
