Florida Gets AT&T VoIP


AT&T Corp. said Monday that it has launched its “CallVantage” residential voice-over-Internet-protocol service in 10 major markets in Florida.

The telco has launched the VoIP service in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington since March.

The 10 new Florida markets are Fort Lauderdale, Fort Pierce-Port Saint Lucie, Jacksonville, Lakeland-Winter Haven, Melbourne, Miami, Orlando, Sarasota-Bradenton, Tampa- St. Petersburg and West Palm Beach.

CallVantage’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.
