If union members decide on industrial action this week over safety, train drivers will be ordered to proceed at a "cautionary" 15mph if they fear any problems with the track. This would throw the entire network - used by more than three million passengers a day - into chaos.

Kite Communications have launched today a new cutting edge technology 'MyPhone' Service that allows workers to take full advantage of flexible working hours.

With so many workers having to juggle their young families with work, people and dealing with rail chaos workers are addressing their priorities and looking towards alternative ways to work. The Government has tackled this problem by introducing flexible hours, brought into action on 6th April 2003, to offer the worker freedom of choice so they can begin to balance work with their family life.

There are an estimated 2.2 million home workers in the UK, which is increasing by 13% each year. Kite Communications have addressed the practicalities and have created The MyPhone Service. In short, it provides all of the benefits of an expensive phone system without the up front costs. The client can make and receive calls that can be held and transferred easily, and the voicemail facility can be accessed anywhere in the country. The real advantage of the system is that it has a personal phone number. This means the user can work either at home or in the office without the caller knowing.

Having the same phone line in different locations can also be beneficial for the smaller business. With office space costing around £73 p/sq.ft in London, people now have a realistic alternative. Two partners collaborating in a business venture can both work from their own homes. As they can share the same phone number and would receive the same in coming calls, either person can answer and transfer.

Larger businesses can also utilise the benefits of this system. By minimising travel into work the employees having to visit clients can now spend more time in the field, which would in turn boost customer relations. By introducing flexible work times and the MyPhone service into the workplace, there would be great many advantages. Having more home workers will reduce overheads and general costs for both the employer and employee. With the avoidance of stressful commuting and better integration of work and home life, this would surely greatly improve motivation and productivity, not to mention the overall well being of the worker.

The MyPhone system is hugely versatile and can even be used in conjunction with Radio Stations. Andy Bantock, technical writer for the Radio Magazine, and is an expert in radio broadcast technology was "impressed by the audio quality" and stated that MyPhone would be "perfectly acceptable for a radio interview."

The "MyPhone" service is provided by "Kite Communications" and is rented on a per user basis. They supply the IP phones as part of the monthly rental that simply plug into a broadband connection that they also supply. More information about this product can be found on their home page,
