Here are some of the benefits of using VOIP:
First of all, the costs to make and receive calls has been drastically reduced. In traditional telephone communication, there is tons of maintenance fees and overhead that need to be accounted for when it comes to your preferred telephone company, and these fees get passed onto the consumer. Voice Over IP suffers from no such complication, and costs to use VOIP are significantly lower than the costs you’d find in using the standard telephone.
Another big reason why costs are kept low using VOIP is because there is no such thing as long distance calling. Traditionally, calling someone outside of your geographic area will result in additional charges above and beyond the fees you’d normally get charged by using your phone regularly. VOIP phone service does not have any way to track whether a call is long distance or not, and so these reduced costs are passed onto the consumer.
