How low can you go?

Just look at these latest rates for calls to the UK using VoIPtalk.

(pence / min)
Off Peak Rate
7pm - 7am GMT
(pence / min)
Weekend Rate
(pence / min)
0.90 0.50 0.20
0.90 0.50 0.20

This means that Pam's one hour chats to Laura and Jemma at the weekends will only cost us 12p each. Even her calls in the week after 7pm will only cost 30p an hour.

I've ordered one of the Siemens phones that I mentioned in a previous post.

Michael, who lives round the corner has one and I helped him set up the other day. We did have to go through the process manually because the settings for VoIPtalk are not included in the software and we did have a problem initially getting an IP address from the server. Once we'd altered the settings to those necessary for VoIPtalk though the phone connected and Michael was able to make his first call.

When our new phone arrives I'll know exactly how to configure it thanks to Michael.

PS Whatever type of Internet connection we eventually use, you can be sure that we will still be using the VoIP phone for our calls.
