If you'd like to surf the Internet and use your VoIP service at the same time, the phone adapter can share your Internet connection with your computer. You simply plug a networking router (use the one you have, or Vonage can supply one) into your Cable modem or DSL modem. This allows you to 'share' your high speed Internet connection. Then plug your phone adapter and computer into the router.
You just make calls as normal, by picking up the phone and dialling, and receive them the same way. The person you're calling doesn't need to have VoIP or an Internet connection on their side. Norton Rose said ÂThe opportunity to make telephone calls over the internet - more cheaply than over the traditional public switch telephone networks (PSTNs) - is clearly attractive to consumers - It is attractive to governments, too: It has the potential to be the "killer application" which encourages mass take-up of broadband'
VoIP in the UK has not been widely available because of relatively few broadband users but latest statistics are showing a significant increase in broadband subscribers. UK broadband usage up 51 per cent in last six months. Four out of ten internet users connect via broadband, which is a year-on-year growth rate of 105 per cent. Two fifths of all UK internet users now use broadband.
