AT&T Goes West with VoIP


AT&T Corp. said Monday that it has expanded its “AT&T CallVantage” voice-over-Internet-protocol service throughout the Western United States.

The VoIP service had already been available in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Texas.

AT&T added that it will offer a special introductory rate of $19.99 per month for six months to those who subscribe to AT&T CallVantage by June 30.

The VoIP service’s features include: “Call Logs,” which track incoming and outgoing calling with “click-to-dial” capability; “Do Not Disturb,” which allows customers to receive calls only when they want, while letting emergency calls ring in; “Personal Conferencing,” which enables users to set up meetings with up to nine additional callers; “Locate Me,” which enables home phones to find customers by ringing up to five phones all at once or one right after the other; and “Voicemail with eFeatures,” which allows customers to hear their messages from any phone or PC and forward voice mail to anyone on the Web via electronic mail.
