Re: VOIP using computer and headphones only?

Re: Possible New ADSL2 Plans For New Financial Year

Since switching to ADSL2 from ADSL 512 my download speed has increased by only about 3 times - which is far less than I had hoped. However I have no great need for the extra speed and am very happy with the overall package. What concerns me more is reliability. I cannot recall broadband going down i...
