Pc to Phone Services for Cheap Long Distance Calls

By: Mike Nicholson

According to Wikipedia Voice over Internet Protocol also called VoIP, IP Telephony and Internet telephony "is the routing of voice conversations over the Internet or through any other IP-based network".

Simply put, VoIP refers to the carriage of voice signals over the Internet. PC to Phone services refers to using your 'Internet-connected' computer to make calls to conventional telephones around the world. Whereas traditional telephone calls take place over fixed line 'circuit switched' networks, VoIP calls are routed through the Internet using a far more efficient method known as 'packet switching'. The main advantage that VoIP has is the cost.

By using the Internet to route your calls, long-distance charges imposed upon by the major telecommunication companies are eliminated. Furthermore, many of the governmental taxes and fees associated with using the highly regulated telephone networks are also avoided. This results in extremely cheap, long distance calling to conventional telephones around the world.

VoIP has become an important technology for phone services to travelers and migrant workers, who either, due to not having a fixed or mobile phone or high overseas roaming charges, chooses instead to use VoIP services to make their phone calls. PC to phone calling cards can be used to make inexpensive calls to anywhere in the World.
