BT’s VoIP Disaster


Azeem’s experiment with BT Broadband Voice has gone horribly wrong, proving for one and for all that it is tough to teach an old dog new tricks.

bq. First off, the Cisco ATA box that comes with BT BBV has a socket for your phone. But the socket is an RJ-11 (US style socket) while BT phones have the ugly BT plug. You need an adaptor (which isnÌt provided)Òand fortunately I know about these adaptors having travelled to the states on busienss many times.

Could we get more dumber. BT, which for those not in the know is British Telecom, and has been trying very hard to become cool. Fat Chance, given that Azeem has to spend time away from his new bride and fret about no dial tone.
