Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 17, 2004
The future of phone calls is here - Voice-over-Internet Protocol, VoIP, is an innovative new way of saying hi to Mom that eliminates minute-by-minute charges and even allows you to call anywhere in the world. The service uses the power of the Internet to carry voice signals instead of traditional copper.
"It's probably the most significant paradigm shift in the entire history of modern communications, since the invention of the telephone," Michael Powell, chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, told journalists at the World Economic Forum.
Foreshadowing a consumer trend that looks to become widespread throughout the country, a new site has recently launched to give savvy buyers an edge in the VoIP market. VoipReview.org is the premier online destination for comparing and purchasing VoIP services.
"The site is a one-stop shopping comparison site for VoIP," said Eric Laughlin, co-founder of VoipReview.org. "We provide an unbiased evaluation on the quality and serviceability of VoIP companies."
Laughlin's desire to create the comparison site came after a handful of fruitless attempts to search for good VoIP service via the Internet. Some services that met his criteria were not in his area and some services in his area lacked the features he was looking for. VoIP comparison woes was something that many other consumers were most likely experiencing, Laughlin realized.
"There's so much information out there that it can be very time-consuming for service buyers. We wanted it to make the process easier, more efficient and more effective."
VoipReview.org is the answer to more efficient VoIP comparison shopping as it teams services directly side-by-side according to a given area code. WhatÂs more, it provides un-biased reviews on every single VoIP provider based on established criteria. Some elements taken into account include: cost, features, installation, customer service, sound quality, features, price and overall value. Companies are given a rating of one to seven stars based on performance.
Overall, the site is user friendly and even offers a VoIP 101 section and industry articles.
"We want to be the #1 source for unbiased, trusted source of Voip providers," said Laughlin. "We carry everyone and rate everyone. We go to the ends of the earth to find out about providers. You donÂt have to go anywhere."
