VoIP Means International Talking at the Least Charges

By: Dennis Jaylon

VoIP is among the new watchwords in communication technology. These services were popularised by famous companies like Vonage and Skype. For the sheer economy, it is now becoming popular with millions of customers around the world. In fact, most net users are seriously considering this revolutionary means of telecommunication which is available at unbelievable rates.

This service has come about to be, thanks to the ever-broadening broadband internet service. VoIP means Voice Over Internet Protocol, as it makes use of the internet lines to send voice-signals across to the other end. Your voice is sent through the Internet in a digital signal form and is converted into a regular telephone signal when it reaches the person you are calling. It is due to this protocol that making and receiving long-distance calls all around the world at minimal rates is not an impossibility any more. Dispensing with the need to pay for a phone line and paying only for your hi-speed internet connection, you make your international calls at the cheapest rates!

To avail to this facility, all you require is a broadband internet connection, and a special VoIP phone, which can be a traditional phone connected to an adapter. You can also make use of a microphone, though not really required. If you have a high need to make international calls, you can find many providers more than willing to offer you special discount schemes for this service.

Despite the obvious benefits of this technology, it is also true that security is still a strong concern. Hacking and eavesdropping are the obvious problems to contend with. Other problems encountered is the lack of an adequate infrastructure, and since it is dependent on internet connection, any slackening in the connection such as during power interruption, affects the VoIP service simultaneously. However, all these hassles are expected to be taken care in the near future, such as with maturing technologies like SSL (Secure Socket Layer) in place, your calling line should be safer
