VoIP Home Phone Service
As broadband internet and cable service becomes more readily available across our country, many of us have realized the convenience and financial benefits of VoIP (Voice-over-Internet-Protocol) phone service. VoIP home phone service is just like the phone service you get with traditional landline phones but at a much lower price.
Many of us have broadband cable, and most broadband cable service providers now offer VoIP service in bundle-deals with cable and internet service making VoIP home phone service even more attractive. However, you do not need to go through your internet provider for VoIP, there are many VoIP service providers to choose from, making this a highly competitive market. An internet connection is a hard requirement however. VoIP phone service is not only great for home phone service but also a money-saving savior for many small businesses that could benefit from not paying long-distance phone charges.
How Does VoIP Work
VoIP works like your traditional landline phone service but transfers the voice data over cable lines instead of phone lines. The two different ways of transmitting calls has become essentially identical over the past few years, except for the costs. Traditional landline phone service charges for local long-distance calls, foreign country calls to Canada and Mexico, while most VoIP phone services allow free-calling all across America, Canada, Mexico and some even offer free world-wide calling, you just pay the low monthly service fee.
Plus VoIP home phone service also provides free of charge voicemail, third-party calling, caller-ID, and many of the other amenities most of us have come to expect out of our phone service. When just compared financially to traditional phone service VoIP phone service far out performs the competition, but VoIP phone service also has a leg up when it comes to offering side services that most traditional phone companies charge you for.
Reliable, Feature Rich & Cheap
The reliability of VoIP phones is amongst the best in the business, as the broadband internet cable lines that carry the data are strong and secure through out most of America. Some people fear VoIP phone service because of dialing 911 concerns, but 911 service on VoIP phone service is mostly mandatory and the reliability of the service is top-notch. The quality of the voice on either end of the phone is also top-notch and virtually indistinguishable from a traditional landline phone. Millions of families have switched over to VoIP home phone service without issues and have been enjoying the savings and service ever since.
Many people also do not want to lose their traditional landline phone number, most VoIP home phone service providers can port your old number over, allowing you to keep a phone number you have had for many years. Keeping your old phone number is free of charge in most cases, and the transition of the number is completely handled by your VoIP service provider, making the switch hassle free.
VoIP phone calls can be made using your regular phone connected to your internet router if you have broadband cable and internet service already. If you are not going though a cable provider you’ll need to obtain an analog telephone adaptor (ATA) to digitally convert your voice into a data stream that can travel over the internet. VoIP service providers often give the ATAs away for free or at cost (very inexpensive). Alternatively you can buy an IP phone and remove the need for the ATA - just connect it directly to your internet router.
VoIP phone service can be purchased through most cable providers or other independent VoIP service Providers, where often the best deals can be obtained.
VoIP home phone service offers quality and reliability with reduced pricing, that could easily save your family over $50 a month when compared to traditional landline phone service; and with millions of people and businesses already using VoIP phone services the reason to switch and save has never been more compelling.
