New FatPort division called mobitus has developed and offers a VOIP service: Users must get the mobitus software phone for their laptops and a headset. The service costs $16.95 (CDN) a month which includes unlimited calls to other mobitus customers. Long distance rates apply to long-distance calls to non-mobitus users.
Mobitus is one of the few VOIP offerings that encourages customers to use public hotspots. Other folks like TeleSym that offer voice over Wi-Fi are more focused on enterprise customers using the offering on a corporate WLAN. Other VOIP offerings, like Vonage, tell people that using the service in a public hotspot is complicated.
