Voice over Internet Protocol is a cutting edge technology that offers low-cost telephony to connect users within and outside the country. In addition to delivering simple voice call services, VoIP also offers benefits such as virtual office, VoIP call center, virtual PBX and more.
With FCC (News - Alert) preparing to implement new VoIP regulations, customers of VoIP telephony are at winning edge, said TheDigest.com. On the occasion of President’s Day, TheDigest.com unveiled top 3 ways VoIP can help people save money by cutting their monthly phone bills. Americans, already going through a ton of monthly expenses, are keen to save money with the help of advanced technologies like VoIP.
With VoIP, residential and business telephony users can connect with people around the world at extremely lower costs. Since VoIP uses Internet instead of over landlines, call charges are reduced considerably. VoIP is the perfect solution for communications that lasts for several minutes or hours. VoIP providers offer unlimited nationwide calling as long as both parties have Internet access.
VoIP also offers portable area codes. The service provides users with the option of picking a phone number with any area code they want, which makes each outgoing and incoming call from that area code a cheap local call. Some VoIP providers like VoIP.com offer local number portability as a free feature of their standard phone package.
For Americans who travel abroad and do international businesses, VoIP is a boon as it reduces their international calling rates. According to estimates, Americans make about 61.5 million trips outside the United States each year, and VoIP now serves the needs of these customers. For instance, VoIP provider BroadVoice offers an international plan of $19.95/month per user to over 29 major countries, like Germany, Hong Kong, the UK, and Chile, and Axvoice users can buy their international plan of $16.58/month per user for calls to 45 countries including Guam, Ireland, France, and Sweden.
