Tiscali to offer cheap net phone calls
Internet service provider Tiscali is set to roll out a new series of services to its broadband subscribers including Voice over IP – a phone system that enables users to make calls via the net and video on demand.
The company claims that calls made using VoIP will work out significantly cheaper than those made via traditional phone networks. The service will debut in Italy in late summer, with a UK launch planned for the end of the year. Tiscali also hopes to offer its customers a video-on-demand service delivering movies and programmes over its broadband Internet connections.
