Australian Company Offers Reduced Cost Hardware for New VoIP Users
Australian Voice over IP (VoIP) provider Clarinet is saving its customers some money on phone calls. Clarinet’s latest offering is a phone adaptor that saves customers compared with what they could pay at their local retailer.

The device is a Linksys PAP2, a digital telephone adaptor that converts analogue phone signals to digital so that it can be sent over a broadband Internet connection.

To use the VoIP service, customers need a broadband internet connection, fixed line phone and phone adaptor.

The basic phone adaptor (SPA-2100) includes a router and is provided by Clarinet for AU$150. The router allows customers to plug in both their phone adaptor and PC to their broadband connection.

Clarinet Director Greg Pennefather said that the phone adaptor is simply an enabling device and Clarinet wants as many people to be able to use VoIP as possible.

Another benefit of the phone adaptor is that users can take it with them, enabling VoIP wherever they travel, so long as there is a high speed Internet connection available.

Another phone adaptor that Clarinet offers is the SPA-3000, which increases the portability of VoIP services. It is provided by Clarinet for AU$175. This phone adaptor allows customers to connect their phone to both Clarinet’s VoIP service and to their traditional phone provider, enabling customers to start slowly with VoIP technology.

The other key advantage of the SPA-3000 phone adaptor is that by using any phone (mobile or fixed), customers can dial a number to connect to their phone adaptor, key in their password credentials and then call out using Clarinet’s VoIP rates.
