Accommodation office SSHW informed its tenants last week that it will not be offering a shared internet (VoIP) telephone for student corridors, although it had previously said it would.
The recent problems with the internet telephone, which were caused by a server being hacked, will soon be resolved. The telephone company Tell-Me will offer a new prepaid VoIP service, Com4tel, that will not use the old provider Vocalis. The new system will no longer include a monthly subscription rate, but users will pay a higher rate for the calls they make. SSHW is currently working out a transfer arrangement for current users. / JH
