Voip saves You Money …Big Time
VOIP or Voice over IP can Save You Money…Big Time VoIP (voice over IP, or voice delivered using the Internet Protocol) is a term used for the delivery of voice information using the Internet Protocol (IP). In general, this means sending voice information (in digital form) in discrete packets rather than in the traditional circuit-committed protocols of the public switched telephone network (PSTN).
What do I need in order to use VOIP?
All you need is a broadband internet connection (DSL or Cable), a Router, and the adapter supplied by your provider. Once you receive the hardware from ?our provider, you’ll simply follow simple instructions to hook it all up. You connect your existing telephone to the phone adapter,(supplied by your provider), plug it directly into your broadband internet connection and your phone calls are sent and received directly through the internet, and you can use any phone you choose.
Will VOIP save me money? and, Why is it so inexpensive?
You’ll save a lot of money over your traditional phone services. For about $20 a month, you’ll get unlimited local and long-distance calling in the US and Canada! Try that with your existing phone company. You’ll also get almost every feature you can think of (caller ID, call forwarding, call waiting, three-way calling, voicemail, and much more) at no additional charge! And if you make international calls, you can’t afford not to switch to VOIP — international rates are amazingly low! VOIP is such good value for a lot of reasons. Using the Internet to route phone calls is very cost-effective. Also, current government legislation favors Internet phone companies.
Recent changes by the FCC mean that individual states won’t be able to restrict VoIP companies since they are not classified as phone companies, saving everyone money. And as the technology becomes more mature, prices are expected to continue to fall. Benefits of VoIP The integration of voice and data traffic will be demanded by multi application software. The inevitable evolution will be web servers capable of interacting with voice, data and images. An integrated infra structure that supports all forms of communication allows more standardization and lesser equipment management. The result is a fault tolerant design. Cost reduction The Public Switched Telephone Networks’ toll services can be bypassed using the Internet backbone, which means a slash in prices of the long distance calls.
However these reductions may slightly decrease when the Federal communications Commission (FCC) removes the Enhanced Service Provider (ESP) status granted to Internet service providers (ISPs) by which they do not have to pay the local access fees to use the telephone company (TELCO) local access facilities. Access fees form a significant part of all long distance calls. But in spite of this, the circuit switched telephony would be expensive because of lack of bandwidth consolidation and speech compression technique.
