Believe it or not, there are still a few people out there who
just don't get it when it comes to VoIP. With services like
Skype, or Google Talk, it is easy to confuse what a true VoIP
plan really is.
Skype, Google Talk, and the like would be more accurately
described as PC to phone or click to call VoIP services. A
VoIP service uses an adaptor, enabling you to make and receive
calls with your home telephone.
I think it is important people know the difference between
click to call and true VoIP when deciding on a VoIP plan. For
all intents and purposes we will be discussing five good
reasons to buy a true VoIP plan.
The biggest reason to buy a VoIP plan is also the most
VoIP is tremendously cheaper on both local and long distance
telephone service, plus available calling features.
Number two on our list would be the dynamic features of VoIP
phone service. VoIP enables you to have a phone number outside
your own area code. You can take your adaptor with you when
Number three is the cost effective ability to add on to
existing service. Lets say you want a second phone line. With
VoIP there is no need to install new equipment, and in most
cases this will only cost around five dollars.
Number four is what I like to call the big trade off. By
switching from dial up Internet to broadband, and switching to
VoIP for phone service, you are acctually getting better
service for less money.
Last but certainly not least, VoIP providers do not charge
hidden fee's. Hidden fee's can make up to 20% of your total
monthly phone bill. The only extra fee with VoIP is a 3%
federal excise tax based on usage.
In closing, when looking for a VoIP service, make sure it is
true VoIP. You only need a cable broadband or DSL connection,
plus an adaptor to get started. Look for a VoIP company with a
money back guarantee.
