It's good to talk

Now that supermarkets are starting to offer IP phone packages (£15 from Tesco for a basic model – although it's not Mac compatible and according to my mate Nick doesn't work too well with wi-fi), can it be long before the VOIP revolution reaches the masses?

With Sky and Orange announcing free broadband offers for their customers and internet phone companies like Skype selling 'free' internet calls to other internet phone users all over the world, things are surely looking up. Evidence surely of web 2.0 (or even 2.1) coming into effect.

I have a VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) phone (although I still haven't managed to set it up at Castle Smith due to lack of internet*) and I know a couple of others (Serge, Nick) who have them or are using VOIP via MSN or AIM. Not many though. I think it will be a while before we adopt the internet phone quite as readily as we have done with the mobile phone. Mind you, I did hear an interesting story about some enterprising folk who are using their web browsers on their mobiles to run their VOIP phones via wireless connections, letting them use their internet phones like a mobile. Clever.

This piece in the Guardian today is slightly worrying and could have a serious impact on the mass take up of internet phones. Security is all well and good but this has a distinct whiff of KGB/Big Brother about it. I wonder if it will be enough to distract people from the magic word of the VOIP revolution's USP – FREE calls.

*also responsible for sporadic posting – I've been leeching wi-fi from friends and my local coffee shop for outside work web use

Serge - do your Belgian Mob connections mean that you can get the best tables at restaurants? I did wonder why you were carrying a violin case when we met in Sunderland ;)

Mads - Go for it but don't expect them to deliver it in a hurry. I'm on my second attempt at ordering it now. Hopefully be worth it once it arrives though - makes me feel less guilty about subscribing to the sports channels

The devil with all this new technology.

Use pigeons, they are harder to tap and unless the receiver is Edmund Blackadder, your pigeon is safe from harm.

Is it as cunning as a fox what used to be professor of cunning at Oxford University, but has moved on, and is now working for the UN at the high commission of international cunning planning?

I get free telephone calls 24/7 plus free 8Mb/s broadband (which is lightening fast btw). I would definitely recommend talktalk broadband for anyone in the uk.

skype wireless


Hi, just wondering if anyone has ever tried SKYPE for telephone calls over the internet?? A pal of mine says it's brilliant and works out much cheaper than conventional calls, just wondered if anyone else has signed up for it?

free internet phone call




Hi, great blog by the way - didn't think you'd mind me posting this anonymously - as you do allow anonymous posts ;-).

Anyone tried this Skype program yet for free telephone calls over the internet? A guy at work uses it all the time and because he signed all his friends and relatives up he saves a fortune on his calls. Might be worth a go.

Good luck with the blog
