Vonage VoIP service on its way


American broadband company, Vonage, is about to make VoIP a whole lot more appealing to the British public. The company is set to launch a Voice over Internet Protocol service in the UK that allows those less savvy about that there t’internet to use a standard telephone rather than a headset plugged into a computer. The service is likely to appeal to those who feel like a daft idiot talking to a PC (we always talk to ours, and it talks back, so it makes no odds to us). It’s delivered using a phone adapter/router which converts the analogue signals into a broadband connection. Prices start at £9.99 a month, which will include unlimited calls to landlines within the UK, as well as all sorts of other services (click on “keep reading” for full details).

Meanwhile, the company has also announced that it is bringing out a VoIP mobile phone. The handset, called the F1000 may well be offered to users for free. If our recent experiences of finding a working hotspot in London are anything to go by, customers could find themselves wandering the streets for a long time just to find somewhere to make a call. It could be ideal in a home or office environment, however, providing low-cost VoIP calls without those pesky cables.
