Videotron to launch soft phone this week

MONTREAL – It’s got local line service and wireless, so it only makes sense that Videotron would branch out into a soft phone service, too. The new service that will be launched Wednesday is a software application that basically lets subscribers use a computer while on the road as their home phone to make phone calls. It allows users greater flexibility when traveling and the ability to take more control of their communications.
