Voipfone Launch VoIP Focused Broadband Package
By: MarkJ - 27 March, 2008 (1:47 PM)

Voipfone, an Internet telephone service provider, has entered the ISP market today with the introduction of a new business broadband ADSL package that's designed to prioritise Voice-over-IP (VoIP) traffic.

The no contract service costs £45 per month and appears to be based off an 'up to' 8Mbps Office Max service (832kbps upstream), touting "unlimited usage" and a free static IP among its many credits.:

Colin Duffy, CEO of Voipfone, comments “Our business customers use their internet connections for more and more activities – email and web browsing of course, but also for document transfer, database back-ups, video upload and a whole host of other things. When telephony is added to all that, the broadband connection becomes a mission critical component of the business.”

Duffy continues: “And yet we often that find clients using a cheap and heavily contended consumer internet access service to do it all with, which of course it can’t. Something has to give and because a telephone conversation has to happen in real time it’s the first to suffer if the connection is poor and congested. Our new network is both voice prioritised and private peered so that our customers get the best possible call quality and line reliability – all the time.”

The service can be used as a dedicated voice line to carry up to 25 simultaneous calls or it can be shared with normal Internet and email traffic without suffering degradation.
