- VoIP work with DSL
Many of the phone companies currently providing DSL and landline phone services are in the process of unbundling DSL and phone services. Depending on who your DSL provider is, you may now choose to get only DSL service instead of needing to pay for phone services to get DSL service. The rate for DSL service unbundled from phone service is fairly competitive with cable Internet rates. There is no special LAN connection required for VoIP. The VoIP phone adapter I use connects into my router just like another PC would. The key is to compare costs of local service to costs of VoIP service before making the connection. You also need to look at what other services you need to connect over your phone lines, like satellite television, for instance.
- VoIP DSL Prime
My DSL connection is too darned slow, I realized, as Jennie is 2,000 miles away with a miserable flu. I wanted to cheer her up with a few episodes of comedies like S. and the City from my computer. It took hours to send them, even at half the size of the cable original and a Speakeasy/MCI DSL line that's three times as fast as what Verizon sells. Later on, I downloaded Red Hat to learn on my machine, and had to leave it working overnight.
- SBC to Launch VoIP Over DSL
SBC (Quote) is testing residential Voice over IP (define) service in four cities in preparation for a full rollout in early 2005, the regional telecom carrier said today. The offering, which includes voice calling, a Web-based portal and call management features, is being used by several hundred SBC DSL customers in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Antonio, spokeswoman Sue McCain told internetnews.com. Pricing for the yet-to-be-named service has not yet been set, but the monthly fees will be competitive with offerings currently on the market, McCain said. The product is being provided through an undisclosed vendor and will be available next year in the 13 states (mostly in the Midwest and West) that SBC serves.
Voice over DSL
Telecom is a tough business lately. Carriers that want to make money in today?s highly competitive, de-regulated market are finding that they have to be more aggressive and focused on customer requirements than ever before. It?s probably not a bad idea to be a little creative and willing to innovate, too. Recently, Flow has made some bold moves on the voice side as well. With the assistance of Quintum?s regional distributor, CommsConnect, Flow has successfully implemented Quintum?s unique Tenor VoIP switching solutions on both its own network edge and its customers? premises. As a result, Flow has been able to quickly and effectively: * Reduce voice backhaul costs by taking advantage of low-cost IP transport for both on-net and off-net traffic; and * Add reliable, quality voice services to its DSL market offering.
