Encryption is the best way to keep eavesdroppers away from VoIP calls, according to one industry expert. In an article for VoIP News, John Edwards explained that without the right protection calls made via local and wireless networks or over the internet can be intercepted by anyone with the right equipment. However, this problem can be solved by using encryption, which makes it virtually impossible for snoopers to listen in to calls, he stated.
Miscommunication between government officials and regulators is threatening the success of plans to roll out broadband to rural areas, the boss of a fibre networks company has claimed. Chris Smedley, chief executive of Geo, said Westminster promised competing companies access to BT's existing telecoms infrastructure which would enable them to provide high-speed internet to remote areas. However comma Ofcom has prevented this since October, he stated, giving these firms only limited rights to use the equipment.
