There are several ways to make calls online. Vonage allows unlimited calls from anywhere in the U.S. to Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Britain for a monthly fee of $25. But a user needs to plug an existing home telephone handset into a little adapter box — worth $60 after rebate — and plug this into a broadband Internet jack such as a cable modem. The company also offers V-Phone and this would do away with the use of a telephone line. The service, however, requires an additional fee of $25 per month. Skype Out, meanwhile, enables a Mac or PC to call normal telephones for $30 a year. But Skype charges another $38 if users would opt to have a phone number for incoming calls.
