Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Pipex is offering its broadband punters the option of making 3,000 minutes worth of calls a month for just an extra £5 a month.

The deal "creates substantial savings over similar services from BT" claims Pipex as well as offering cheaper calls to mobiles and overseas numbers.

Pipex Talk is expected to be made available from next month although punters can register their interest from Monday.

The free 3,000 minutes a month for £4.99 apply to UK local and national calls with numbers beginning 01 and 02.

Pipex - which has more than 200,00 broadband punters - will charge internet and voice calls on a single bill. Punters who sign up for Pipex Talk still need to pay BT for line rental.

Said Pipex's Dominic Crolla: "The introduction of Pipex Talk will release a few pounds every month for our customers who switch their voice services away from BT, without any fuss."

Last month AOL UK joined the growing list of companies offering phone services to residential customers.

AOL Talk includes unlimited UK local and national calls at any time of the day or night and costs £9.99 a month. ®
