VoIP Benefits

Over the last few years VoIP and network hardware has improved significantly, meaning VoIP services are now a viable alternative to the traditional phone service for Business and Residential users.

One of the big advantages that a VoIP telephony service has to offer over a regular phone service is the abundance of benefits that come with a VoIP service for no extra cost.

Select an item from the list below to see more details.

Common benefits

  1. Save Money on Phone Calls
    It costs less to make a telephone call using VoIP than it does using conventional landline services. Local and National/STD are charged at the same rate.
  2. NO connection or flagfall fees
    Unlike traditional telephone companies, VoIP providers do not charge you a fee for connecting mobile, national or international calls.
  3. NO lock-in contracts or no plan commitments
    VoIP providers, generally, do not lock you in for years to make you stay with them. VoIP customers choose to stay to take advantage of low call rates and flexible service plans.
  4. Calls from one VoIP phone to another on the same network are FREE.
    When your friends and family join up to the same VoIP provider you are able to call their VoIP number and talk directly to them for no charge.
  5. Save Money on Line Rental
    Connecting a VoIP service effectively gives you an additional telephone line. Your existing landline service will still work, but now you make calls using your VoIP service and save.
    Therefore, you can replace any additional telephone lines with a VoIP service.
  6. Answer more than one call on the same phone number at the same time.
    With the right VoIP service, you will be able to receive multiple calls.
  7. Make multiple phone calls at the same time.
    With the right VoIP service, you will be able to make multiple calls at the same time. You are not limited as you are with a traditional phone system. The One call per Line restrictions goes out the window.
  8. Easy to implement one or more additional lines.
    Adding additional lines is a breeze. All you need to do is to purchase an additional ATA and connect it up to the system.
  9. Free up your Landline…
    By using your VoIP Service to make calls, there will be no more busy signals when friends and clients call.
  10. Take your Phone with you if you move or travel
    You can take your phone number and service with you wherever you go. When you travel interstate or overseas, or even when you move home completely you simply pack up your equipment and plug it back in again at your new location.
  11. Electronic notification of voicemails. Receive your voice message in an email.
  12. Call waiting, call forwarding and call number barring.
