VoIP Services

VoIP Services

VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol and is a technology that is destined to replace our phone lines as we know them today.

Companies providing VoIP service are commonly referred to as providers, and protocols which are used to carry voice signals over the IP network are commonly referred to as voice over IP or VoIP protocols. Some cost savings are due to using a single network to carry voice and data, especially where users have existing unused network capacity that can apply VoIP at no additional cost. VoIP to VoIP phone calls are usually free, while VoIP to PSTN may have a cost that's carried by the VoIP user.

Two type of PSTN to VoIP services exist: the first is the DID (Direct Inward Dialing) and the other one uses access numbers. DID will connect the caller directly to the VoIP user while access numbers require the caller to input the extension number of the VoIP user. Access numbers are ussually free for the VoIP user because they are charged as a local call, so essentially the VOIP user pays a phone bill. DID usually works just with monthly payments.

By using the products of the VoIP providers, we can reap the many benefit of them. We can take our phone line with us, anywhere we have internet connection, we can lower our phone bills, we are able to eliminate our long distance bill, we may be able to bypass excessive taxes and we are also able to avoid monopolistic phone companies all over the world by using the latest generation of phone calls combined with the traditional one.

All of the service providers have some very luring deals for you. If you would like to utilize features such as conference calling, choice of any area code, voice mail, caller ID it is just up to you. And if you run a small business and your phone calls make up a significant part of your overhead, these service can also ease your pain. There are some service providers which provide you with the ability to talk and see each other at the same time by a webcam. This is very useful for conference talking, because we all know, that in business we really need personal contacts also, it is important to not to lose our humanity and personality, calling someone with a video connection can be a nice personal touch, but it can also make or break a good deal.

On the internet there are a huge number of websites offering you a wide range of services, combining the prices and the specific types of services in similar ways, but to chose the best, you should visit the site: www.voipreview.org, where you can find the perfect service for you, sorting all providers by review and by name as well.

Otherwise the best-rated companies are Sunrocket, VelocityTel, Lingo (primus), and VoIP your life. We have to be very careful though, when we are choosing our first service provider, and it is useful to ask someone who already uses these kind of services, because there can be some drawbacks (maybe because of the lack of the minimum knowledge we need), that can make us feel that it does not ease our life, but makes it even more complicated.
