Vonage is trying to revolutionise phones and VoIP with its unique service which will take over the role of you landline in your house. Even though you don’t need to have a PC switched on to use it, it still offers you the same low cost calls as ordinary VoIP services. If you have a wireless router, you can choose to go for Vonage’s cordless Wi-Fi handset, the UTStarcom F1000B which will let you make and receive calls from an ordinary landline number, but from anywhere you happen to have Wi-Fi access – home, the office, the office in New York, wherever.
The guys over at GadgetCentre have been trying one out recently and, while there were a couple of hiccups in the service, the overall impression was pretty positive. Vonage has really come up with a decent way of saving a few quid on your phone calls and would be an especially favourable alternative if you’re thinking of putting a second phone line in your house.
