With the emergence of broadband, Internet service providers
like DSL (digital service line), computers connect to
a LAN (local area network) at the speeds of 1 to 3mbps
and that makes Internet surfing really exciting. Now
because of the increased speed, telephone conversation
becomes an added feature to the fast service trunk line.
In effect, the analog telephone becomes only a part
of a DSL/LAN connection. So, why maintain a regular
telephone line when a DSL/LAN connection can provide
the voice over service at no additional or at an even
lesser cost? Besides, calls can be made anywhere around
the globe without any time constraints and hefty charges
to worry about.
As demand for VOIP broadband soars, it becomes academic
not to expect different digital phone service providers
to come in. As the new system provides unlimited local
and long distance calls at a fixed monthly rate, digital
phone service in the US costs only as little as $ 199
to reflect savings of at least $ 500 annually.
In addition to its cost-effective features, VoIP broadband
is usually bundled with an array of functionalities
that are typically charged with additional fees over
PSTN devices. Talking on the phone while surfing the
Net becomes an easy task. Depending on your network
set-up, this may require the installation of additional
equipment such as a telephone adapter that is usually
given by the service provider.
The VoIP broadband system is really simple and you
don't need to be a high-tech geek to make an Internet
call. Just pick-up the VoIP broadband phone then dial
the number (no password or additional numbers to contend
with) and you're on. Or make your connection direct
to the computer using a headset and with a direct video
feed via webcam and you can see and be seen by your
counterpart on the other end.
It is important to subscribe to a VOIP broadband provider
that offers the lowest monthly rates apart from value-added
features and a reliable 24-hour service, in case of
