VoIP (Voice over internet protocol) has solved the problem of the cost of long distance calls. The VoIP system utilizes the internet as a tool to make calls, allowing the user to make long distance calls at a fraction of the cost of standard telecoms companies.
The phone that is often provided by VoIP service operators is not really that much different to the standard handset the majority of people currently use. It comprises a cradle and features many of the functions and extras that a normal phone would.
The only difference is that instead of being plugged into a phone socket on the wall, it is plugged into a broadband router.
Those put off by the technology involved should not fear - the VoIP phone can be pulled and setup straight from the box and with no arduous extra installation time to a normal phone.
The desire to communicate with the world while at the same time keeping costs down has never been more apparent. As people now try to save money in all areas of life, it’s good to know that a device exists to allow us to still communicate with loved ones around the World.
Packages specifically offering unlimited calls to international locations such as India are available in the United Kingdom for as a little as £18.99 a month. To out more about VoIP then contact a service provider who will tailor a package to your needs.
About VoIP and making cheap phone calls
VoIP is often has a number of different meanings. It actually stands for 'Voice over IP', which in turn is short for 'Voice over Internet Protocol'. VoIP services mean users can make cheap phone calls either via your computer or through a regular phone handset. IP telephony or VoIP calls tend to be cheaper as they use the infrastructure you've already got in place to make and receive your calls.
