Keys To Understanding The Benefits Of Voip Service

Jan 8, 2008
Chances are very high, with all the publicity it has been receiving, that you have heard of VOIP service. The reason for its popularity is simply because for the vast majority of people, it is an extremely cost effective solution to telephone calls, which is something that we all do almost every day.

For example, with a traditional phone line, you are probably going to pay about $25 to $30 a month just for the phone line and dial tone, with no features. If you want a bunch of features added to the line, the cost of the line could then run into $60 a month or more, and that still does not include any calling. Where does this make any economic sense?

Now let's say you want to do some calling with your phone, which is reasonable. Even if you can get free local calling, you are paying for each long distance minute that you talk, or if you have one of the phone company's unlimited plans, then you can talk all you want but your monthly phone bill is going to be north of $65. Now compare that to VOIP services where you get all the features and unlimited long distance for about $25 a month or less.

Due to new laws and the LNP (Local Number Portability) charge you have been already paying for years, you can now keep your same phone number for your new VOIP service. Your VOIP phone typically already includes, at no additional cost, features such as voice mail, call waiting, call blocking, 3 way calling and call forwarding.

You may even be able to take advantage of cheaper advanced services such as call transfers, distinctive rings, call blocks for telemarketers, virtual telephone numbers, phone to PC capabilities, do not disturb functions, unavailable forwarding, international blocking, busy redial, call block for anonymous callers, speed dialing, contact lists, call return, multiple rings, and so much more.

Your VOIP service works over your high speed Internet connection, which you probably already have anyway, so you are getting additional use out of something that you are already paying for. You can get VOIP service through your high speed Internet provider, but most times you can get a much better deal by using a different VOIP carrier without sacrificing quality or features, and usually even get an even better price.

You have many options with VOIP to choose from. This includes features and packages. You can choose a package that best fits the needs of your household. They also have separate rates for international calling, if you are someone who needs to call out of the United States or Canada regularly. The type of VOIP service you choose and the company you choose it from is your own choice.

It is important to use the internet to your advantage. Do some comparison shopping. Take a look at the different packages offered and determine which companies offer you the most for the best price. Don't end up paying for features you will never use or need.
