voip newbie seeks help

I am a viginmedia customer with a 20MB cable internet connection on the 12
month discounted deal. I also have a BT line. My BT bills are usually
20 -30 pounds per month for between 5-10 of calls. I am not a big telephone
user and it bugs me to pay my BT bill being such a low user. I am looking
into voip as I want to ditch BT in order to justify keeping my 20MB when the
discount expires.
Having read through the posts here, I believe I need a VOIP ATA and an
account with someone like

Looking on ebay, there is quite a choice - Linksys, Cisco etc.

Could someone here recomend one that works well with virginmedia please?
I would also welcome any general help / advice on this issue.

Cheers folks,

If you haven't got a cable router then you can get an integrated VoIP
router, there isn't that much choice for cable ones, Draytek 2900V or 2700V
(very good but not cheap) or Fritzbox.
If you have cable router then any ATA will work as they simply plug in to a
free ethernet port.
Linksys is now owned by Cisco.
I suggest that you consider, who will give you a free UK geo.
number of your choice and then you just pay for calls, NO rental. They also
sell ATA'a and Fritzbox routers etc.
For more information go to uk.telecom.voip group ,
