VoIP VoIP Reviews & Prices

VoIP services can save you hundreds of dollars a year on your phone bills. VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol, and if you're using a high-speed internet connection to view this page, you have just about everything you need to start using one of these services. VoIP technology makes calls the same way your computer sends and receives data, only there's no computer involved, just an adapter or VoIP phone provided by the VoIP service. Using the tremendous capacity of the Internet to send and receive calls allows VoIP companies to avoid passing on the charges associated with traditional telephone services. Your calls come through just as they normally would; the only difference is what you'll be paying. Our VoIP reviews and comparison chart look at the most important differences between the companies.
