Can I use a softphone?

I would like to know If I can use a softphone on my pc to call other people and other computers. Also I would like to know if I can videoconference across VOIP with my comcast service.

Re: Can I use a softphone?

Dear Colt1911

The question about softphones is an interesting one. A softphone, as you know, is software for making telephone calls over the internet, using a general purpose computer rather than dedicated hardware. Unfortunately, the Comcast Digital Voice is not a PC-to-Phone or PC-to-PC service; hence the use of a softphone is not compatible with our service.

In addition, video conferencing may be available in the near future with a commercial (business) account, but not with a residential account.

Thanks for the Post!
