There is a lot of buzz going on about the newest way to communicate to your friends, family and co-workers. I am talking about VoIP or Voice over IP. Basically what VoIP consists of is instead of using telephone wires to talk over the phone, you will be using your Internet connection.
It’s 2018 and people will only pick the best VoIP services around.
There are many reasons why people are starting to choose this type of telephone service. But what are they? Why is everyone so excited about this new communication service? Well, there are many reasons why millions of Americans are starting to say goodbye to telephone wires, and hello to broadband Internet.
The main reason why so many people are making a step towards this type of telephone provider is because you will be saving a ton of money. And honestly, this is a huge benefit that nearly everyone would enjoy. But how are they saving so much money? The main reason why switching to VoIP will save you money is because you aren’t using a PSTN line, or a Packet-Switched Telephone Network.
When you are talking on a standard telephone, you are using a PSTN line, which charges you per minute you are on the line. While if you are talking overseas, than the rates skyrocket. However, when you use ADSL, which is what you are using when talking on VoIP, it has been shown that using a VoIP can save you up to 40% on local calls and 90% on international calls. This is a lot of money.
Another huge reason why people are so excited about VoIP is because you get so many features that you never thought you could possibly have on your telephone. This is possible because VoIP uses the internet as its main backbone, and whenever your “spine” is outfitted with so many various technologies, of course you’re going to get some of the coolest and innovative features imaginable.
Yet, there is another reason why VoIP is so popular. It’s because it is more than just talking, you can actually communicate on several levels with this service.
This is made possible because since you are using the Internet Protocol, or IP, you can send different forms of media to the person you’re talking too. Heck, you can even be talking to her, while you’re on your web cam. So instead of just hearing your voice, you can send the other person images, videos and text too. I think this is a really awesome benefit of VoIP.
And one of the last benefits of VoIP is that you aren’t wasting your bandwidth, which is a huge concern among some people. Did you know that more than 50% of voice conversations is filled with silence? Well, one would think that would use a lot of bandwidth, however, when voice is not being transmitted, there is nothing being transmitted, thus no wasted bandwidth.
There are so many reasons why people choose to go with VoIP. Whether it’s because you want to save a little extra money every month, or if it’s due to the fact that you want more dynamic conversations with your friends and family, or business.
No matter what the reason, it is clear that VoIP is a cool new choice in communication. But with all new things, there will certainly have downfalls too.
