If you are still using a landline in your home, you are being overcharged for a service that you could easily implement with your Internet connection.

According to James Lawson of CheapCalls.com, "Keeping in touch with our loved ones is crucial, and in this economy we need to find the best ways to make cheap calls. A person may be surprised to learn just how quickly a phone bill can expand when we stay in contact with someone from the next area code."
With the traditional method of making phone calls via a landline telephone, a connection is made over copper wire. That copper wire connection could be hundreds or thousands of miles. The costs of the wire have to be covered by consumers who make use of the service. Unfortunately, these wires are not suitable for high speed Internet connections, which is why this type of connection has always been expensive.
With the advent of VoIP, it is possible to make use of the existing Internet infrastructure to carry voice phone calls across the nation and even the world. The cost will only be a fraction of what is paid to a landline telephone company. The only cost for the VoIP provider is a when the call is converted to a landline phone call near the destination. Consumers who have been struggling with expenses in the current economy will appreciate the financial relief they get from cheaper calls.
Even those who have cell phones will find that they save money by not using the finite number of minutes in their calling plan. In most cases, there is a very high per minute rate for any minutes used beyond what's available in the calling plan. In addition, a lot of unused minutes are lost every month in cell phone plans because unused minutes are generally not carried forward to the following month even though the consumer has paid for the cell phone calling plan.
With VoIP, the billing aspects works a bit differently. Consumers only pay for the calls that are actually made unless they are on an unlimited minutes domestic calling plan. If the number of minutes exceed the cost of an unlimited plan, it's best to switch to it to cap the costs. Some VoIP providers have country specific plans that can help lower costs for those that call a specific country frequently with lower per minute rates.
