Sipgate pioneers countrywide VoIP line coverage

Duesseldorf (indigo) - Following up today's announcement Sipgate has released its enhanced VoIP service. Sipgate now provides 01 and 02 phone numbers out of more than 600 area codes along with its VoIP offering covering almost the entire UK. Some 40 remaining area codes in rural areas will be added in the coming weeks according to company information.

Broadband subscribers may opt for a free VoIP line provided by Sipgate along with a real phone number matching their location. Sipgate is available either as a replacement for an existing land line or as a second line at the consumers disposal. Sipgate provides its line service free of charge. Also, calls among Sipgate subscribers worldwide are free of charge, as are calls to about 1 million VoIP subscribers of its eleven national and international partner networks. Calls to traditional land lines are available for as low as 0.59 pence a minute.

Since starting out in January 2004, Sipgate has provisioned more than 60,000 lines in Europe and strives to gain a significant market share in the European VoIP market. Sipgate welcomes the open approach to the new VoIP technology as taken by Ofcom, the regulatory authority overseeing the telecom industry, but is wary of anti-competitive measures installed by incumbent players. "As long as British Telecom keeps force-feeding land lines along with its broadband services, competition will be stifled," says Thilo Salmon, Managing Director of Indigo Networks, the corporation behind Sipgate. Says Salmon: "In order for the consumers to benefit from the promising new VoIP technology, authorities need to level the playing field to promote competition in this emerging market."

Na toll ... ich hätte erst das zweite Posting lesen sollen :)

Aber wie dem auch sei:
Schön, dass sie expandieren.
Schade, dass sie es in dieser Form nicht auf dem deutschen Markt tun.
Schön, dass sie großflächig (evtl. bald EU-Weit) gegen die Bündelung von Breitbandanschlüssen mit Telefonleitungen kämpfen.
