VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol is increasingly becoming a more popular choice of communication than the traditional phone line such as PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network).  Especially in the harsh economic times when everyone is trying cost cutting in all spheres of life, VoIP has proved to be a boon. Using VoIP technology you can make calls over the Internet by changing analog signals into digital signals. These can travel through the Internet. It costs less, or is almost free, and services provide a better functionality when compared to the other available methods. You will need either a VoIP phone or an ATA (Analog Terminal Adapter) device and an Internet connection of sufficient bandwidth to get started. Let us understand how you can save money on the calls you make using VoIP.

VoIP services providers offer plans to suit affordability and usage of every individual, at home and in business. Depending on your usage you can make a choice. People travelling frequently can use VoIP on their mobile phones to save money. At home, you can either set ATA between your phone line and Internet router or use a separate VoIP instrument for calls. Using a separate VoIP instrument is always better since it eliminates dependency of taking calls near PC. The services require a monthly rental. Some plans even offer unlimited calling facility within the US for the complete month at one-time competitive monthly rental. There are special plans for operating business that require constant international communication. Monthly rentals may range between $10- $25 dollars or even less depending on the plan you choose. Some consider these calls as almost free when comparing the usage against the monthly rentals.

One of the biggest advantage of using VoIP is that it allows you to make and take calls from anywhere in the world where there is access to the Internet. If you are someone who travels abroad more than rarely you must be aware of the high prices of international calls and roaming. VoIP technology helps keep costs of international telecommunication to the minimum. A VoIP phone provides mobility and lets you communicate without your laptop or PC while you are on the go.

While simple devices are needed for home use, you may want to deploy a fully functional business VoIP system for maximum saving and efficient services. A VoIP service provider takes complete care of providing necessary hardware and also installing it so that you can enjoy a hassle free service.
