The constant increase of Internet availability and usage has ensured a secure future for VoIP termination service providers. VoIP or voice over Internet protocol is used to send voice in the form of data via Internet in order to achieve higher efficiency and to reduce the call cost thereof. VoIP unlike public switch telephony network relies solely on the high speed Internet connection instead of optical fiber wires. The equipments needed for transferring voice over the Internet is minimum thereby cutting down on the operational cost too making VoIP the cheapest telephony service.

Along with these benefits is another major advantage that comes along with VoIP termination service - its mobility. You can easily remain connected with the rest of the world irrespective of the location and network from where you are connected to the Internet. All you need is a computer or an IP or VoIP enabled phone, Internet connection, an ATA (it is an adapter provided by your VoIP service provider) and headset...and you are ready to go!

Voice over IP service is available through 2 kinds of services - one is a paid service and another is through free service. Paid service is generally ideal for residential use i.e. to call up your friends, family, and relatives while paid service is the best option for business use.

VoIP service providers are present in a cluster in the telecom market making it challenging for the customer to select the best among them. This labored task can be made simpler by analyzing your individual needs or the requirement of your business. By seeing a host of features at attractive prices, it is quiet easy to lose sight of reason and opt for a service with poor quality. Make a list of features and services you really need and then research on a provider who is providing those services amalgamated with enhanced quality.

For monitoring the quality of service, ask the provider for the average call duration, average success ratio and post duration delay of the call. Higher the previous two and lower the latter, better would be the quality of service.

Round the clock customer supports, online real time billings, call detail report, technical assistance at the onset of the service are some of the features which stand together to make the perfect VoIP arrangement.
