VoIP services keep on expanding and more and more businesses (and not only) replace traditional telephony with a VoIP system.
Voice Over Internet Protocol is a communication technology that uses the internet to make and receive calls, instead of landlines. VoIP services have a lot of advantages over landlines:
- They are more affordable; we all know how costly it can be to make a long distance phone call through landlines; VoIP telephony can save you a lot of money because phone calls are going to be significantly cheaper, no matter where you have to make a call; everything is done through the internet, which significantly reduces your costs; VoIP can work with or without additional hardware; you can choose to use it directly with your computer or mobile phone if you want to, which saves you even more money
- VoIP services are versatile; this technology converts your analog signal into digital packets of data that are sent through the internet to the recipient of your choice; but unlike with traditional telephony, with VoIP you can send audio, text, images and video files as well
- VoIP services are flexible, you can use them regardless of your location, from anywhere in the world, as long as you sign up for a VoIP service and you have a reliable internet connection
