With people having no option other than expensive mobile phone call charges , they’ve opted to download our program which enables free phone calls PC-PC aswell as PC-Phone number.

    I'll send them an e-mail as soon as I get home from school to check it out on broadband over break. Is the technology over VOIP or is it something different?

    The idea of PC-PC calls (especially encrypted ones) and PC-Real Phone calls I absolutely adore. Is there an option in the software to do a video chat with someone, let alone one that is encrypted as well? That would be something I'd like to see as well. Perhaps I'm not searching enough.

    I got a reply after emailing the guys at Notse.

    The only bad bit is that it offers PC-Real Telephone Calls for free in UK only. Then again i guess its only a beta. It looks promising . Good interface and easy to use. Plus it fits just like part of the browser.

    No used any of the other true voIP services (skype and the other PC-PC services arent voIP so they don't count ) so i can't make a true review of it yet . but ill make a review in two days or so.

    yep I emailed them from one of my ISP accounts too.... as for them being at uni - bloody students spend far too much of my hard earned tax drinking and enjoying themselves instead of working - bastards <said with tongue firmly in cheek cos I used to do the same and I'm jealous of any student these days - I liked being a full time student>
