Tesco internet phone adapter makes VoIP calling easier

Tesco have released an interesting new gizmo that should make it easier for people to adopt VoIP calling.

The Tesco Internet Phone Adapter converts a traditional landline handset to making calls over the Internet instead of over a telephone line.

It means you can essentially create a second phone line without paying for addition line rental, and make lower-cost calling without having your computer on.

Tesco's VoIP plan includes international calls to 25 countries for 2p a minute, and calls to UK mobiles for 10p a minute.

If you sign up for Extra, you can make calls for 1p a minute to UK landlines if you top up by £5 a month or more.

The Adapter packs costs £50 in Tesco, and contains £5 airtime.
