National Mobile Television has announced plans to offer Vonage® broadband telephone service on two of its mobile production trucks. Scheduled to launch in two of NMT’s trucks in April 2004, the pilot program will offer NMT clients fixed area codes and phone numbers on a per-truck basis, as well as easy access to phone service.
Vonage service utilizes the company’s Media Terminal Adapter, which is plugged into a broadband connection such as a T1 line, cable modem or DSL connection. Beginning in April, the adapters will be installed in two of NMT’s trucks, allowing local and long-distance telephone service to be available directly from the truck, provided the venue is equipped with the proper broadband service.
With Vonage, NMT can offer multiple phone lines and permanent dial-in numbers that travel with each truck. Customers can also select their own area codes. NMT is currently considering installing the technology in its entire fleet, pending a successful April launch.
