Advance information indicates that IHUG are also planning a Net-telephony service which should come on-line around the beginning of the second quarter of this year.

Tim Wood of IHUG says the service will be "phone to phone, or net to phone or phone to net, etc". Anticipated coverage includes all USA calling areas, UK, France, Australia, Japan, NZ, Germany and Sweden. The move is timed to coincide with the arrival of additional bandwidth for the IHUG operation.

It would appear that faced with increasing competition from local Telcos in the area of Internet service provision, some ISPs are getting very serious about turning the tables on the traditional providers of voice communications.
