How to Evaluate your Best VOIP Solution

by : Jon Arnold

The VOIP (voice over internet protocol) solution for your telephone needs doesn't have to be complicated. It is actually one of the easiest things to switch over and will save you a lot of money. Residential service through your local phone company is getting higher and higher. Are you tired of being surprised by your telephone bill every month?

With VOIP services you can get a phone line for as little as $9.95 a month for about 200 minutes. This is perfect for someone who doesn't spend a lot of time on the telephone. However there are plans that start at $14.95 a month for unlimited calling within the U.S.
It doesn't matter if you live in Florida and your mother lives in California, you can call her whenever you want and it doesn't cost extra.

The one thing you have to have to take advantage of the great prices a VOIP solution system will offer is a high speed internet connection. More households than ever have internet service today and high speed internet is not too costly. You will more than make up for it with the money you save on your telephone bill, because even without VOIP you will almost certainly have your highspeed Internet connection.

VOIP telephone service has so many extras included that you will have to take the time to sit down and review them so you will know what you have access to. Call waiting, call forwarding, caller I.D., voicemail, three-way calling, and anonymous call blocking are just a few of the services you get with your VOIP solution.

There's no need for an answering machine to get your messages when you're gone. With VOIP you have a voicemail number you can call and get all your messages. You can set the number of times you want your telephone to ring before the voice mail picks up

Are you tired of getting up in the morning and the first thing the telephone starts ringing with that day's telemarketers? You can easily put in two numbers and the star sign and your telephone will be set on do not disturb until you are ready to start receiving calls. This works well for wanting your quiet time after a hard day at work too.

Most VOIP companies are manageable online and they keep a log of calls you have received and calls you have made. This is a great way of keeping track of telephone numbers without having to write them down and then search for where you put them. Another convenience of having a VOIP solution is you can pay your bill online using your debit card or checking account.

You don't have to get a new phone number to use VOIP. You can keep your number. This takes care of having to remember a new number or calling all your friends and family to give them a new number. You also do not have to have any kind of special phone for this service. Your regular house phone will plug into your computer and you can use it the same as before. You must have a router to hook your telephone line in but they are not very expensive.

This is by far one of the best telephone services that you will find considering the cost and extra services that are provided for such a low price.
