TMCNet: Announces the Top 5 Ways VoIP Can Help Customers Slash Expensive Phone Bills with Cheap Internet Phone Service

[February 07, 2013] Announces the Top 5 Ways VoIP Can Help Customers Slash Expensive Phone Bills with Cheap Internet Phone Service

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (PRWEB) February 07, 2013 Savings and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) go hand-in-hand. VoIP providers offer subscribers a more efficient Internet-based phone solution, which means customers pay less for high-powered, reliable phone service.

The savings on phone plans, however, are only the beginning for VoIP subscribers. Accordingly, My VoIP Provider has announced 5 ways VoIP helps customers save money: 1. Cheaper Phone Bill When switching to VoIP, subscribers will notice that VoIP is much cheaper than a traditional phone service. VoIP offers such low rates because the service does not rely on complicated and expensive landlines or cell towers, and so cost of maintenance are much lower for the provider.

Because traditional providers must maintain and organize an outdated infrastructure, they end up charging much more for phone service. VoIP providers, on the other hand, find the most efficient way to transmit a call, making it cheaper for subscribers.

2. Long Distance Calling A residential or business VoIP service will offer the cheapest long distance rates around. Because VoIP relies on the Internet, there is virtually no difference between a local call and a long distance call, or any other kind of call, and VoIP providers can offer unlimited calling for a low monthly fee.

Calls within the US and to Canada, in most cases, are free and international calls carry a low per-minute fee. Some VoIP providers even offer free international calls to predetermined countries.

And for those subscribers with relatives living across the country, it’s possible to get a virtual number with a local area code in a different city or state. That means relatives won’t be charged for a long distance call by their service provider when they call the virtual number.

3. Expanded Features A feature like caller ID, which lets users see who is calling them, is extremely useful, but traditional service providers usually charge extra for it. VoIP service providers, on the other hand, offer tons of features -- not just basic ones like caller ID -- for free. Advanced phone features can improve efficiency in the workplace, which will also lead to improved monthly savings with VoIP.

4. Unlimited Extensions and Customized VoIP Office Plans A business can save money using VoIP as well by outfitting their company with a hosted PBX (private branch exchange) or a SIP trunking solution (Session Initiation Protocol). Most businesses use some form of PBX, but a VoIP PBX allows businesses more customization on cheaper extension lines.

Hosted PBXs are hosted and maintained completely by the service provider. These plans are great for any business owner who doesn’t want to worry about the costs of ownership and repair. SIP trunking solutions give outbound VoIP functionality to in-house VoIP PBXs. These are great for businesses that don’t want an unlimited outbound extension for every office phone, but would rather pay a smaller fee for a lower outbound calling capacity.

5. Lower Overhead VoIP also makes telecommuting easier by allowing employees to make calls and access their voicemail from anywhere. The auto attendant will route calls to the employee, and they can work from the comfort of their own homes. Better yet, smaller businesses can cut out the need for an office space altogether, and have everyone work from home.

Companies that want to cut down on their paper use can also benefit from many VoIP providers’ IP faxing options. Rather than send or receive faxes using a traditional phone line, an IP fax system uses the Internet.

IP Faxing allows businesses to read their faxes from any Internet-connected device, with an option to print the most important documents. That way, a constant stream of faxes isn’t turned into costly paper waste.
