The average number of calling features is increasing for VoIP phone service plans while monthly prices remain steady, according to VoipReview.org (http://www.VoipReview.org), the first and most complete comparison shopping and information source for broadband phone service. While the average number of features per calling plan increased from 23 in April to nearly 27 in November, the average price of an unlimited long distance VoIP home plan remained consistent at approximately $25 per month, according to online search data collected from April 1 through November 30, 2006.

"The VoIP industry has steadily improved product offerings over the past year, which means VoIP buyers continue to get more for their money," said Eric Laughlin, chief executive officer of VoipReview.org. "As VoIP providers compete for their share of the marketplace, you'll see more and more calling features offered standard, with prices staying generally the same. In addition to the cost savings over traditional analog phone lines, free calling features are another key reason why more people are switching to VoIP."

Based on VoipReview.org's online search data, the average number of calling features included in VoIP provider plans ranging from $1 to $30 per month has steadily increased from 23.2 in April to 26.71 in November 2006.
