      Is Sky Talk VoIP or vanilla telephony?

      I'm looking at the various Sky-Talk offers, and I wanted to check that their "telephone" products are not VoIP, just normal NON-VoIP telephone calls?

      Thanks.

      Well, it's a plug a phone into your BT socket system and, as you continue paying your line rental to BT, Sky Talk F or U are what are normally referred to a CPS (Carrier PreSelect) calls provider systems.

      How Sky routes the calls once they've left the BT exchange may or may not involve VoIP though.
