    I just wish they would discount for the fact you are not getting media.

    It is good, if you don't approach it from the angle of 'it is simcity, so should be just like the old games'.

    SimCity Societies? Gah. Hope you didn't pay too much for it. Have read everywhere that it smells like old man smell, and it's a "Sim" game in name only.

    The advantage of VOIP is that the infrastructure for running it is much cheaper for BT to manage. No need for the PSTN switching nonsense - just route the traffic over the net like everything else.

    On a business scale, VOIP adds in huge advantages due to the ability to easily integrate it with systems throughout every aspect of the business.

    In this case, the BT VOIP line rental is free with the Homehub/Broadband package, and you simply pay for it on your normal bill if you make chargeable calls via it.

    Ah I see.. thanks for bearing with me! You said already.. it's simply a normal line.

    I just had in my head that this was a web phone/ could be used web to web.

    So what are the advantages to VOIP? Is it really just a second line? Do you pay 2x line rental and 2 bills then I presume??

    You can't call it for free, unless your own phone provider (be that BT, Skype, Vonage etc...) offer a 'call national/local numbers for free' package on your line/accounts that you use.

    If you were with BT, your line would have at least free evening and weekend calls to national and local rate numbers, so you'd be able to call my normal or BT VOIP line for free.

    Yes it's a Newtown number. Odd he didn't get 05 then.

    You have probably hit one of the 'irritating length' periods of growth. Cutting it won't help.

    When it gets past that, the weight will keep it tidier.

    The line is simply a normal line, it just gets routed via the internet instead. Anything like calling it for free depends entirely on the person who is calling it.

    It is true that you use the VOIP line unless you dial 5.

    It seems they have assigned a number in Newtown, is this right? Most new lines are now assigned an 05xxx number, as these are just for VOIP lines. The 44 is just the UK country code.
