15 Apr 2005

UK-based corporate communications provider COLT Telecom has launched what it claims is the first Europe-wide VoIP service for business users. COLT IP Voice offers local, long-distance and international calls in countries covered by COLT’s network for a flat rate, per-user-per-month fee of EUR24.50 (USD31.50), but excludes calls to mobiles and countries outside of COLT’s remit. Handsets and bonus features are covered by an additional EUR20 monthly fee. COLT owns an integrated 20,000km pan-European network that directly connects approximately 10,000 buildings in 13 countries, including the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Ireland, with 32 metropolitan area networks augmented with a further 42 points of presence across Europe and eleven Internet Solution Centres.
