« The Athens Affair – A Network Break-In | Main | Duke University Says iPhones Might be Jamming Network »



Gosh, seems like it would not be terribly difficult to create a web phone the size of a cell phone, that connected via any open wireless connection. That would be sweet in cities where there is city-wide free wireless. Probably be unpopular with the cellular providers though. Maybe they ought to think about getting ahead of that particular curve with a dual-mode cell phone that gives free wireless calling when in range, and switches to cellular automatically when no wireless is available. Be nice if my laptop did that too while I'm thinking about it.

The Primus backed Lingo also offers reliable unlimited calls at reasonable rates. Their economical Small Talk and Lingo Link calling plans are perfect for home users.


I've been a Lingo customer for over six months, and have never had any issues with them. In my opinion, Lingo offers fairly good local and international calling solutions. By acquiring Lingo’s international numbers, I am now able to establish a local presence in London where I have many friends and relatives. Now, they can make phone calls to me at local call rates.
