Have you ever cut a long distance or international phone conversation short with either a client or a remote employee because you were worried about racking up a hefty phone bill? If you frequently make overseas calls via a traditional landline, you know how easy it is to run up your phone bills due to the high call charges. Fortunately, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone solutions have helped businesses stay connected to clients, partners, suppliers, and employees overseas without breaking the bank.
VoIP technology converts your voice to audio packets and then uses the internet to route calls, which bypasses traditional phone company lines and saves users as much as 45% on their phone bills each month. In fact, cheap calling rates are one of the best reasons many businesses switch to VoIP. Depending on the plan you choose, you can get unlimited local and long-distance calling. Some providers even include a select number of international minutes per month! Most providers also offer their customers free on-network calling, meaning that you can call clients or customers on the same service for free.
