Everyone from big corporate houses to small enterprises or residential users is saving money on telephone bills. With emergence of VoIP phone service, long distance or international calls have become cheaper. In addition to cost effectiveness, the Internet telephony service is also backed with enhanced productivity.

With few essential features, this latest mode of telecommunication has brought in a revolution of sorts in the communication industry, which was hitherto dominated by the pre-existing PSTN services. The business houses are availing greater benefits with bundled service plans; this fact holds more true for businesses having a global presence. Another important benefit is that, users are now able to call at lower rates from anywhere in the world i.e. users are exempted from roaming charges.

This convergence technology has given users a newer way to communicate with others at low costs. For availing the service, users require Internet connection instead of regular phone lines, ATA or Analog Telephone Adaptor for data conversion as well as a phone - which is a standard equipment. The VoIP internet phone service digitalises the analog sound into digital packets that travels over an IP network; the process is based on the packet switching technique. With this technique, users can avail the add-on benefits like easy transfer of images, videos and texts on the same network. Therefore, the costs of calls through VoIP telephone service are significantly lower as they are not based on the call durations.

In the VoIP telephone service, voice quality depend primary on the quality of Internet bandwidth. Therefore, services can be easily integrated on existing infrastructures. The cost of installation is significantly less as compared to traditional phones. Most notably, potential users should look out for VoIP phone service providers that offer bundled online benefits like voice mail, access to email or live chat. In addition to that, service providers must offer standard features like call waiting, voice mail, caller ID and 3-way calling free of charge.
