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

Posted by Voipfone on August 1, 2019

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

That Winning Feeling

Posted by Voipfone on June 1, 2019

We won our trade association’s Best VoIP Provider for Business Award again last month. I say ‘again’ because we’ve won it several times before, in fact I’ve just checked our website and we’ve won 14 annual awards like this. My office shelf is aching under the weight of shiny glass. That’s one award per year… Read More

New Features

Posted by Voipfone on May 1, 2019

Last month we released some major upgrades to our service; a new Control Panel – which hopefully you are now getting used to – and several additions to our Business Hours and Diverts settings. These latter features allow you to route calls in sophisticated ways when your business is closed. Shortly we will be introducing… Read More

Millennium Bug for SatNavs – 7 April 2019

Posted by Voipfone on April 3, 2019

Either this is the most elaborate April fool’s joke I’ve seen or quite a lot of older satnavs will have a hissy fit on April 7th this year – yes this week – and start reporting errors or cease to work at all. This is because it’s 1,024 weeks since the beginning of GPS time.… Read More
