I use Vonage. You plug their little adapter into your broadband modem with an ethernet cable and they give you a (second) phone number. Then you can use a normal phone - I use a base and cordless phone. The PC does not have to be on. It is about £8 a month and there are various option re countries you can have. I have USA, Canada, Australia, Ireland , Germany and UK. I keep my BT line for broadband and as a second phone. There are cheaper total packages but I find them very good on service etc, and they only want a one month rolling contract.You phone anyone on normal telephone, not just people with broadband.
