BT boasted that sign-ups for its Broadband Talk and Softphone Voice-over-IP (VoIP) services have reached one million. The figure includes subscribers to the Broadband Talk service and those who have secured a dedicated VoIP number. The company also said many of its 500,000 Business Broadband customers are also VoIP users though it declined to say the specific figure.
BT also unveiled a WiFi variant to its fixed mobile convergence (FMC) package. The solution allows subscribers to perform calls using cellular networks, Wi-Fi hotspots or private wireless LANs for a fixed monthly charge. Nokia, Samsung and Motorola are selling handsets that are compatible with this service.
