THE internet has revolutionised home phone calls, with services such as Skype offering free calls. Now the technology is moving to mobile phones.
Last week, two firms, Leeds-based Mobiboo and the US giant Belkin, launched mobiles that send and receive calls over the internet using a wireless connection (wi-fi), bypassing the traditional mobile networks and their high costs.
Calls on the same network are free anywhere in the world.The Belkin phone connects to the Skype network while Mobiboo uses The Cloud.
