VOIP Phone Adapter

Product Overview

The BW Phone Adapter enables high-quality feature-rich telephone service through your satellite Internet connection. Just plug it into your home router or modem and use the two standard telephone jacks to connect your existing phones.
Each phone jack operates independently, with separate phone service and phone numbers - like having two phone lines.

With an appropriate bandwidth subscription, you'll get clear telephone reception, even while using the Internet at the same time for normal data operations. With Internet telephony, along with low domestic and international phone rates, an impressive array of special phone features are available. Choose your preferred free local dialling area code, regardless of where you live. Or add a virtual phone number in any area code, forwarded to your Internet phone. You can even add a toll-free number.

The BW Phone Adapter is compatible with these and all of the other special telephone features that are available from your telephone service provider, such as Caller ID, Call Waiting, Voicemail, Call Forwarding, Distinctive Ring, etc. Let the BW Phone Adapter turn your existing Internet connection into a high-quality high-value telephone service.
