Don’t Mess With My Reality

Posted by Voipfone on May 1, 2020

Here at Voipfone Towers we’re all very used to this lockdown, work from home stuff, because of course we’re all home workers and always have been. So it’s sort of amusing and a little frustrating hearing industry colleagues talking about it like they’re experts, having discovered it just 4 weeks ago. Still, better late than… Read More

This Damn Bug

Posted by Voipfone on April 1, 2020

There’s no blog this month because, well, all the words I have at the moment are those that in the eyes of the law would be likely to cause alarm and distress. So I’ll just wish you good health during this emergency and try to get back on track by next month when we may… Read More

E.T. Roam Home

The UK government issues guidance to people traveling to Europe for such things as the need for visas, taking pets, currency, medical insurance and so on and has now added warnings that the guarantee of free mobile roaming across the EU, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein will end from 01 January 2021. This, they say, “marks… Read More

Jolly Green Giant

Posted by Voipfone on February 1, 2020

Microsoft green-bombed the world last month by announcing that not only will it go carbon neutral by 2025, it will go carbon negative too – by 2050 -eventually removing all the carbon it’s put into the environment since it began in 1975. This got the green lobby to announce that they were pleased. Almost happy.… Read More

The Grinch

Posted by Voipfone on January 1, 2020

Over the last few weeks I, like you, have received hundreds of seasonal greeting and warm wishes from pretty much every faceless organisation I’ve ever granted my email address to. Pretty much all of them are fake well-wishers of course, none of them know me or care one way or the other whether I had… Read More

Free Beer and Bagels!

Posted by Voipfone on December 1, 2019

I’m trying to think of any product or service that gets piped into my house that’s free – but with the exception of air and domestic abuse I’m stuck. I pay for water, electricity, gas and TV so what’s so special about superfast broadband that it should be free like the NHS and education? Jeremy… Read More

A Quantum of Incomprehension

Posted by Voipfone on November 1, 2019

A new phrase for me this month was quantum supremacy; apparently it’s the point where a quantum computer can do things that a normal computer can’t. The reason I picked up on this is because google ‘accidentally’ leaked an internal research paper to NASA saying that their quantum computer – Sycamore – had reached ‘quantum… Read More

One Big Problem – OBP

Posted by Voipfone on October 1, 2019

OBPs are Outbound Payments, they’re what’s paid to the telephone company in the country that finally delivers a call there from another country. So if you call France we might send the call to France Telecom. We charge you 1.5p per minute and then have to give France Telecom almost all of it. The payment… Read More

Indecent Proposal

Posted by Voipfone on September 1, 2019

Pretty much everyone I know has been receiving email blackmail demands from fraudsters saying that they have hacked into their PC, smart phone and laptop cameras and have recorded what they’ve been up to. And apparently what we’ve all been up to is a bit rude. And now the lovely guy is going to send… Read More

It’s official, Voipfone is the Best UK VoIP Provider 2019 according to ISPA (the Internet Service Providers Association). And, of course, according to ITSPA (the Internet Telephony Service Providers Association) which also proclaimed us to be the best in the UK last month. A grand slam year from Voipfone! Read More
