You may flaunt an IP phone soon

The top news item in ToI almost had me jump with joy today morning. With TRAI mulling leveling the playing fields for ISP telephone providers and traditional telephony players, the stage is set for the biggest percentage fall in prices of long distance calls. ISD calls that cost an average of 7 rupees per minute today could fall to 1-2 rupees a minute. STD calls within India could cost as cheap as 30 paise a minute.The difference this time around in terms of the TRAI trying to create a level field is that it is planning to allow the origin and termination of Internet based calls (that have streaming data packets rather than dedicated lines) legal. That frees people hooked onto IP phones from the clutches of cyber cafes , PCs and laptops. Now you can buy a IP phone and flaunt it too.
