    The techonology is called VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)

    IF you live in the U.S., almost every cable company and most big telephone companies provide it as long as you have broadband service. However some of the best deals are by 3rd parties like Vonage (which I have.)

    goto http://www.pcworld.com/resource/article/0,aid,120312,pg,1,00.asp - they have a good article. However their 911 call service information is incorrect. I have Vonage and I have emergency 911 service. You have to set it up when you get the equipment.
