T-Mobile offers unlimited VoIP calls for landlines

T-Mobile Talk Forever

T-Mobile this morning revealed HotSpot@Home Talk Forever, a new spin on its existing voice-over-Internet service that takes the previously mobile-only concept to landlines. Similar to Vonage and other VoIP systems, subscribers attach a landline phone to a specialized router that that eliminates the need for long-distance fees; users can place unlimited calls to any place in the US. T-Mobile's variant includes a special Linksys router that also supplies 802.11g Wi-Fi for other devices in the home, including T-Mobile cellphones already using the mobile version of HotSpot@Home.

The feature itself adds $10 per month to any of T-Mobile's landline plans but also requires purchasing the router, which costs $50 after signing a two-year contract. Access to the service is currently available only in Dallas and Seattle but should expand over time to include all of T-Mobile's service area.
