If you're looking for VoIP services
for your home, you'll need to figure out exactly what
your current needs are. For instance, you've probably
heard about the great cost-savings of VoIP and you want
to slash your current phone bills. Saving money is the
primary concern for many consumers. Other consumers
place their number one concern on safety. This is the
one disadvantage of many VoIP services right now is
that not all offer comprehensive emergency 911 service.
Not to worry, though. The Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) has mandated that all VoIP service providers offer
transparent e911 service by September 2005.
Some consumers will choose to
wait until this time or others will simply use their
cell phones for emergency service and replace their
landlines with VoIP service in order to cut down on
costs. Another disadvantage is that if your home has
a power outage, then VoIP service will also be out as
well, since the PC, hub, gateway or router need power
in order to operate. A cell phone can accommodate you
in this case as well. Its really a matter of preference,
though and what suits your lifestyle best that counts.
If you're looking for the lowest
cost VoIP services possible, then you may wish to download
a free copy of Skype software to your PC and call other
Skype users anywhere in the world for free. You can
also call any traditional telephone also for a lower
service fee than you'll find with any traditional phone
service. If you're looking for a way to replace your
current landline, then you can either buy a VoIP phone
or a VoIP telephone adapter (and use your regular phone),
plug it into your current cable or DSL connection, find
a VoIP service provider and off you go. Many households
who make lots of long-distance calls, particularly to
outside the country find enormous savings using VoIP
VoIP services for business is
