was reading all about this in the morning press.

Unfortunately, at the start of this year, for health reasons, I swapped homes with my son, and have kept his full Blueyonder package, which I have to say, has been a blessing.

Maybe later after the teething troubles which sometimes happen with new technologies, I may have a BT line again, and give it a whirl.

No good to me - wouldn't move to BT broadband.

personally, BT broadband have been excellent to me, never failed me etc... I expect I will try this service, and probably be very impressed by it. I guess it's simply the case of convergence of technology into "one" phone number for all services, fax, mobile, home etc.

Bring this technology on.

it gives me UK landline rates at home - now I already get this with one-tel, although I do have to pay £9.99 per month line rental (which BT get a part of).

I have no wish to change to an uncompetitive BT broadband service.

"Full details of our highly competitive monthly subscription plans will be available later this summer." so there will be a monthly subscription but BT's description of highly competitive has never been the same as mine - although I would like to be pleasantly surprised.

And when I disapear out with the mobile handset, what will the missus and the kids use? Or have I missed something?

Ont of the major feature of the Fusion phone is that if you start a call outside and them enter your house it will switch from the mobile connection to the landline without dropping the call.

What it wont do it drop the tariff so you'll keep paying the mobile rate even when you move onto the land line.

Looks like a bit of a donkey.

The bit where BT were unable to give the cost of local calls makes me suspect that this is dead in the water. I get 900 mins free calls on my mobile to any landline or Vodafone in the UK after 1900hrs, before 0800 hrs and all weekend. This costs £15/month and my home line would be torn out if I did not need it for BB. The idea, like a lot of BT's late ones, is dead in the water.

Con-Fusion reigns...?

They're frightened to death of Vonage. It connects to your Broadband connection and gives you free calls to any phone in the UK 24/7 for the pricly sum of £9.99 a month. Business lines cost £19.99 a month. Calls to oversees cost a few pence per minuite.
