Voice over IP (VoIP) services usually aim their wares at business buyers. That’s partly because those customers have large corporate networks that can handle all that new traffic you’ll get by turning your voice calls into data. But since so many homes now have a broadband connection, that means they’re running a data network, too. Just a smaller and simpler one than you’d find at the office. If you’re careful about what you buy, you can take advantage of VoIP’s key benefits, which include far more features and a much lower price tag than an old-fashioned landline.
