Personal VOIP Phone?

I have broadband at home but don't want to go to the additional expense of having a business phone line put in.

Can I buy a 'personal VOIP phone' now to plug into my PC that comes with a UK phone number?

Thanks, Stefan

Beleive it or not, BT offer one the better VoIP services for consumers at this moment.

THIS news article explains a little about it.

That involves connecting an IP phone to your router and not to your PC.

I have just installed one of these and I am impressed. It just works and the sound quality is really excellent!

Now my only gripes:

1/ The free Cisco Analog to i/p converter box supplied is a bit like a small brick (A half brick?) Wink

2/ BT charges could be less! (Cost/min) I am also intrigued to find out how much it will cost to phone my new "055" phone number from different networks?

This type of technology has to be the next "killer i/p app" imo - Maybe Plusnet should role out its' own product?
