Once a customer has decided they want VoIP, the next hurdle is figuring out which Internet telephone plan is right for them. “VoIP” is a technical name for what is more commonly known as Internet telephone service, and with the right Internet telephone plan, business, residential, and wholesale VoIP customers can save as much as 80% on their phone bills.
There are lots of providers out there, and so there are lots of Internet telephone plans on the market. According to VoIP writer Rachel Greenberg, learning to understand the technology is challenge enough, and then after that, a customer still needs to pick the right plan.
