Turning to VoIP Communication

VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) is a type of phone call where analog signals are converted into digital signals. These converted signals are then transmitted via the internet thereby allowing free telephone calls to be made without the involvement of a telephone company. With such a characteristic, internet telephony will allow a user to utilize different methods in making a phone call - using a computer, an IP phone or an analog telephone equipped with an ATA adapter. Furthermore, anyone with a laptop computer can utilize a VoIP service in any location that has wireless or WiFi connections.

Normally, high speed internet connection and a digital phone are necessary in order to have quality calls. Some providers may even offer a special software so a computer can be used for this service. Regular phone networks may soon be replaced with IP telephony due to the numerous advantages it offers.

One of the reasons why VoIP is the top choice in phone systems is because of the cheaper rates it affords. Most service providers offer flexible plans and packages that may include free local or international calls. A single line can also have up to 10 extensions which is beneficial for businesses that require multiple lines. Mobility is another reason why this service is fast becoming an option for frequent travelers.

In addition to the above mentioned, IP phone services have features that are not found or may be paid features on ordinary telephone services. VoIP may come with the following phone features: 3-way calling, call waiting, caller ID, online call recording, short dialing, return calls, and many more.
