Curb the Cost of Telephoning With VoIP Technology

By: Daphne Adriana

Revolutionizing the telecommunication system, VoIP (voice over Internet Protocol) has given the leverage to make long distance calls and talk hour after hour without being worried about the high bills. This technology has made it possible to make overseas calls at local rates and at the same time enjoy better voice clarity. Simply access to the Internet is enough to avail the advantage of this technology.

The way VoIP technology works is very simple. It uses broadband connection to make and receive voice calls. That is why this type of phoning system is known as broadband phone. This technology converts the speaker's voice into digital signal and transmits it over the Internet. The signal is then converted back to voice before it reaches the desired destination. The voice does not lose its clarity if the Internet speed is up to the market. However, poor Internet speed may affect the quality of VoIP service.

The main benefit of VoIP is to keep the cost of telephoning low. As mentioned earlier, it facilitates you to make long distance calls at local rate. Besides that it provides certain features like call waiting, call diverting, caller ID etc. free of cost. What more, you can even help your family and friends who are residing in some other countries pay less while making you calls. For that all you have to do is to choose a virtual number. Whoever will make a call to this number will have to pay at the rate of local calls only.

Since, VoIP phones use broadband Internet to transmit digital signal, high speed Internet connection is a must to take advantage of this technology. Better quality service can be ensured from this technology if the Internet speed is of that mark. It may not work when there is power outage or no Internet connection. So, installing a backup power supply will be a good idea to enjoy uninterrupted VoIP service.
