About IP-Phone-C

This IP-Phone service lets you make calls through the Internet instead of through NTT's telephone network (your phone line) and so it is possible to make low cost calls. It is even possible to use this service without a phone line, all you need is an Asahi Net ADSL or FTTH Internet connection - see the Who can use this service section below.

To use the service you will need VoIP-capable equipment, such as a VoIP-capable ADSL modem. You will connect a phone to the VoIP-capable equipment and use the phone to make your calls - you do not sit in front of your computer with a headset when using this IP-Phone service!

There is no charge for calls between users of the IP-Phone-C service and no charge for calls to IP-Phone users of affiliated ISPs using NTT Communication's VoIP platform. One 050 telephone number is allocated for each IP-Phone-C contract.

The IP-Phone-C service uses the VoIP infrastructure of NTT Communications.
