King Richard III was found this week under a parking lot in England. The former English king had been missing for about 5 centuries, and was identified by DNA from his very distant nephew who’s a carpenter in Canada. One never knows when a long distance relative might pop up, and when they do, VoIP keeps them connected.
VoIP (“Voice over Internet Protocol”) is the technology that allows phone calls to take place over the Internet. It’s the cheapest method for both international and national calls.
In honor of connecting with newly found relatives, The Digest announces The Top 3 VoIP providers for keeping in contact with long distance relatives:
