...just so its clear in my mind before I start fiddling about. So, what exactly would be the advantages of using PlusTalk over - say - Skype?

Deathly silence.

I'll take that as a none then.

Well according to the FAQ plustalk traffic gets higher priority on plusnet's network than p2p traffic... I guess Skype traffic probably doesn't get any special treatment (anyone know for sure?)

I use Skype on a regular basis all over the world and have had no problems, but +net's offering is a waste of space, no amount of playing would ever get it to work.

BB+ 512 and no problems.

PlusNet's service runs on standard protocols and not a p2p network. You can use any SIP compliant soft/hard phone.

Major players are going to be using SIP, it's a future technology and SIP can be used from personal VoIP to companies running their telephone system on it.

It just needs to be set up properly and the documentation is a little complex at the moment.

For example, MSN Messenger 5 is SIP compliant and you can use that as a phone.

Compared to Skype, Plus nets offering is limited to say the least.

I use Skype both in work and at home and find it superb.

untill the full product, including peering, is released by Plus net I suppose we cant judge.
