IPeerX end users will now be able to call PhoneGnome customers without having calls handed off to the traditional telephone network, thus avoiding PSTN access or toll charges.

IPeerX is proud to be partnering with TelEvolution, the company that makes the revolutionary voice technology product PhoneGnome."
PhoneGnome is a fully plug and play VoIP appliance, available for a one time purchase price, with no monthly fees, no subscription fees, and no activation charges. PhoneGnome works with the existing telephone service. 911 is not affected and the telephone still works when the power goes out or the Internet is down.
