Adam Internet jumps on board VoIP

Adam Internet, one of South Australia's leading Internet providers has launched a VoIP service in partnership with ISPhone Australasia.

The service is called AdamTalk, and is only available to Adam Internet's ADSL Broadband customers. It will carry a monthly fee of $5, with $5 call credit. Phone calls will be untimed and charged at as little as 12 cents for local and STD calls. VoIP calls to other AdamTalk customers will be free of charge.

Managing Director of Adam Internet, Scott Hicks spoke of the other benefits of the AdamTalk service.

"Customers are able to dial 000 which allows their address to be located in the event of an emergency, while measures are also in place to reduce the risk of disruption during service failure. Furthermore, the service is still operational regardless of whether the computer is switched on or off."

The service can operate either through the user's computer, or through an existing phone that is connected to a modem and attached to a specialised adapter.

Adam Internet is one of the largest ISPs in South Australia, with 35 per cent of the broadband and dial-up market. It has been in operation for 20 years, and has steadily grown to cater to residential, government and business customers.

The AdamTalk service doesn't seek to compete with established VoIP providers, such as Skype. "The service is one of convenience, rolling all services into one bill," Hicks said. "The quality of the service is very high, too. The sound, for instance, is comparable to a landline."

ISPhone was founded in 2005 and sells VoIP solutions to ISPs, System Integrators and other IT consultants. Hicks said that the company "won out against the competition because it is a likeminded, future-focused technology company. ISPhone is the only national provider with a dedicated point of presence in Adelaide."

The company is currently developing a VoIP package for businesses, which is due to be launched later in the year.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
