Internet Phone Service

By: Tate Christee

Continued from Part 1, we discussed what exactly internet phone service is. Here we will discuss some of the features and benefits this kind of phone service can offer you.

You might be surprised to know that the people who stand to benefit the most from Internet phone service is business owners for a variety of reasons, including reduced long distance charges, phone number mobility and local market presence... just to name a few of the reasons. Many businesses tend to have a high rate of long distance phone calls both domestic and long distance. Also, VoIP phone service meshes well with other business telecommunications systems which is another added benefit. Another great benefit for businesses is that the phone number never has to be changed, no matter where the business is relocated, even if it relocates to another country.

Internet phone service does have some weak points that must be considered and one of them is that it won't function in the event of a power outage. This is due to the fact that required hardware such as modems and routers require power to operate the phone system. There are backup power systems that are available and if the business or home already has a burglar alarm system, it will have such a backup power system. Also, due to current technical limitations that are being worked on, your home address will not be sent with a 911 emergency call, so you will have to provide it when you call.

If you aren't afraid of change then mosty likely you'll dig deeper into what internet phone service can do for you. It's a smart idea to do plenty of research with your company before you go signing up. The most reputable companies out there will be able to offer the best service, so always be sure to do your homework first.
