Vonage and VTech Launch 5.8 GHZ Cordless VoIP System

Vonage will begin offering a 5.8 GHz cordless broadband phone system configured with its flat-rate VoIP service at over 8,000 retailers across the U.S.

The VTech phone base has integrated routing features that eliminates the need to purchase a separate router to share the broadband connection with other PC. It plugs directly into the broadband connection (or existing router) and come with two handsets and is expandable to up to four. The retail price of the system is $149.00 (minus $50 rebate) and the price for additional handsets is $49.99 per device.

VTech's phone uses Texas Instruments' TNETV1060 VoIP chipset.
