While the world remains transfixed on the royal baby prince of England, regular parents everywhere are looking for new ways to save money during their kids’ back to school season.
Between new notebooks, pencils, protractors, and new school clothes, parents have some big bills in the month of September. Every little bit helps, which is why VoIP phone service is such a great investment for a family.
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is just a fancy name for Internet calling. Internet calling allows people to place calls over computers, laptops, home phones, and smartphones. It’s often 50 to 80% cheaper than traditional calling, which makes it a good fit for families. That’s why VoIPReview is revealing the top 4 ways that VoIP helps parents save money this back to school season.
1. Unlimited Nationwide Calling
Nearly all VoIP providers offer unlimited nationwide calling. This feature is usually free with most residential VoIP plans. Some plans even include unlimited calling to Canada and Mexico. VoIP technology completely eliminates those pesky long distance and roaming fees from the phone bill. Unlimited calling is perfect for families members who are spread out all over the country who want regular updates on little Johnny or Jill’s school activities.
2. Unlimited International Calling
Most residential plans offer international unlimited plans to select countries like China, India, the UK, Brazil, Puerto Rico, and many others. International calling with traditional phone service is pricy to say the least, but Internet calling makes those calls across the world low-cost if not free. From the first day of school to graduation, families can stay as connected as possible with unlimited time to talk about school work and other life moments along the way.
3. Mobile VoIP
Most residential VoIP plans include mobile VoIP apps which allow family members to bring their inexpensive home VoIP plan with them on the go. Users simply download the app to their smartphone, tablet, or laptop to start making unlimited calls. This is great for parents who need to make a few calls to other parents or family members as they’re out and about at their kids’ soccer games or school field trips.
4. Tons of Family Features
Where VoIP really shines is in its abundant features. Most VoIP plans come with dozens of features that work great for families and for work-from-home parents. Some of the most popular features include 3-way calling, email-to-voicemail, telemarketer blocking, music-on-hold, call forwarding, and speed dial. Parents are used to multitasking, which why a phone service with multiple free features is a great help.
VoIP helps parents save a little extra cash each month so there is more fun money for funky pencils and new clothes in time for the back to school season.
