***Make That Call Home With A Phone Card***

If you are an immigrant or naturalized citizen of the United States, but from the Philippines, what is the best way for you to call home without breaking the bank? Most of my Philippine friends and acquaintances have found that a Philippine phone card can be the best answer. Calling overseas to anywhere is not a cheap thing to do, with prices running up as high as a dollar or two per minute. There has to be a better way, then, right?
A Philippine phone card is really the best answer. Phone companies produce the phone cards with lower minute rates because you are paying up front for the time. Since they have their money in advance, the per minute price on a Philippine phone card is really more reasonable than with anything else. They are offered through a variety of companies and service providers, but most are fine since you are going through a Philippine phone card instead of a phone plan.
So where do you find a Philippine phone card? Well, the best place to start off is like with most anything else these days: the internet. There, you will find a number of Philippine phone cards available for purchase. Use your favorite search engine to search for them. Your other option is to just look for international calling websites or even the websites of specific phone service providers worldwide. Take your time and search thoroughly to make sure you get the best possible price on your Philippine phone card.
The second good place to look for Philippine phone cards is at your local stores. Many Philippine stores or grocery suppliers will offer Philippine phone card at their check out line. You may also find them at gas stations and department stores located in prominent Philippine neighborhoods. Ask the clerks as well since sometimes if they don't have the cards they may know of another place that might.
Fourth, consider asking friends and family. If you are from the Philippines, you likely have friends or family of the same descent as you. They may be aware of good places to purchase or order Philippine phone cards. They will also know where the best prices are and who offers the best service on their cards. By talking with friends and or family you will save yourself a lot of the research above. That is, assuming that they did their research.
Being an immigrant is not easy, so it is important to you to keep in touch with your friends and family. Simply picking up your phone and dialing overseas can cost you a fortune. However, you can always look into buying a Philippine phone card. With it you can save yourself a lot of money.If you would like to find more of my personal articles on phone cards please check out my website on international phone cards!

***Broadband TV a World of Choice***

Broadband television is a means of providing TV programs via the Internet. It is possible to view live terrestrial television channels, but it is more practical to us it to see programs that have already been transmitted, so avoiding the need to set your video recorder. To get Broadband T V you need a broadband connection and a computer or special set-top box.Broadband Television is being hailed as the biggest change in the way we watch television since it was first invented. Over the coming years broadband television is expected to completely change home entertainment, it will allow viewers a vast choice from all over the world not just the programs they watch but how they watch them.Broadband television has only become practical because of the huge growth of high-speed Internet connections. More than 50% of all connections to the Web now make use of broadband. Today's standard bandwidth of 2 MB would give an adequate service, but television industry experts say 8 to 10 MB is the minimum needed for a full broadband TV service.There are two main types of service that are being developed, standard television channels that will replace the traditional services we have today, and video on demand, where views can choose programs from the service providers archives. Perhaps this will cut down on the level of repeats that are shown at present.Apart from the need for greater bandwidth, the greatest stumbling block for broadband TV is thought to be the big film companies, the big studios seem to be reluctant to provide films and shows because they have concerns that it may affect revenues from DVD and foreign sales.The major benefits of Broadband TV will be a much greater choice of programs, the possibility of more interactive services, potentially viewers will be able to direct their own programs choosing the camera angles etc that they want, and it will also enable people to make and transmit their own programs so opening up the possibility of local community television.For more tips and information about all aspects of Broadband please visit http: / / www.broadbandcenter.info

***Plan Ahead - Determine Your Bandwidth Requirements For Video C unimarter UniMarter
***Plan Ahead - Determine Your Bandwidth Requirements For Video Conferencing Early***

Most of today's companies are maximizing their travel budgets and communication requirements by making smart use of videoconferencing as an alternative to face-to-face meetings. With this decision to implement enterprise-level videoconferencing comes a requirement for bandwidth solutions which are reliable and cost effective.Videoconferencing can leverage the existing public telephone network, a private IP network or the Internet. The target bandwidth for interactive video communications is in the 300K to 400K bit / sec per stream range. This includes audio and video as well as control signaling.The H.323 protocol does not require that two or more endpoints in a session send the same data rate they receive. A low-powered endpoint may only be able to encode at a rate of 100K bit / sec, but, because decoding is less processor-intensive, it could decode a 300K bit / sec videostream.Nevertheless, in videoconferencing, bandwidth is assumed to be symmetrical. In full-duplex networks such as ISDN, Ethernet, ATM and time division multiplexed networks, capacity is expressed as bandwidth in one direction, though equal bandwidth is available for traffic in the opposite direction.You need to estimate the number of simultaneous sessions your network needs to support, and figure out if your network has bandwidth end-to-end.A T-1 bandwidth circuit offers 1.5M bit / sec in each direction and would be ample bandwidth for two 512K bit / sec or three 384K bit / sec videoconferences, depending on the amount of simultaneous traffic on the network. Also, make sure that you have 10 / 100 switched Ethernet throughout the LAN segments where videoconferencing traffic is expected.Multipoint conference bandwidth (with which three or more locations can see and hear one another) is calculated separately from point-to-point sessions. Multipoint can be conducted in either IP or ISDN environments, and some conferencing units will support both network types.Multipoint conferencing products may be software-based or accelerated with special hardware, and their configuration can produce different bandwidth consumption patterns as well as different user experiences. For example, when an endpoint is used to host a multipoint conference, the maximum bandwidth for any single participant is the bandwidth allocated to that host divided by the number of locations participating. When you need to have more than four locations on a call at the same time, network-based products are recommended.If you decide that your IP network can't handle the additional traffic associated with live video sessions in a merged or converged network deployment, your options are to rely on circuit switched networks or to deploy additional IP bandwidth capacity. To assist in determining and acquiring the exact bandwidth to meet your requirements...it's strongly recommended to make use of a free technical consultation service such as via DS3-Bandwidth.com. Also, an excellent guideline resource for video conferencing set-up and management is available from "Video Conferencing Solutions".Michael is the owner of FreedomFire Communications....including DS3-Bandwidth.com.

***Dial-up Vs. Broadband Video*** The decision to pay the ex unimarter UniMarter
***Dial-up Vs. Broadband Video***

The decision to pay the extra fees and move from dial-up to broadband usually involves meeting three wants: faster downloads, faster uploads and live streaming video.The transmission of live streaming video is dependent on bandwidth, video codecs and the ability to transmit as many frames per second as possible. Let?s review how these variables effect video on dial-up and broadband.First a little background on bandwidths and speeds. A lot of people use the terms bandwidth and speeds interchangeably, so it?s important to clarify the difference. Think of a water pipe. You can get more water through the pipe by increasing the pressure to send it through faster. This increases the ?speed.? You can also get more water out the end by increasing the size of the pipe. This increases the ?bandwidth?When you go from a dial-up ISP to a broadband ISP, you increase the size of the pipe by getting more bandwidth. This way you can get more data through the pipe in the same amount of time, thus allowing faster uploads and downloads. Video is data, too, but good video requires enormous amounts of data. Because of this, video is often referred to as a bandwidth hog. When you increase the bandwidth, you allow more video through in the same amount of time.Programmers can use creative and complicated mathematical formulas called algorithms to put the data into packets that allow more packets to go through the pipe. This is comparable to increasing the speed of the water in the pipeline. In the world of video, the algorithm is called a codec. Well known codecs include MPEG-4, MPEG-2 and JPEG.In order to evaluate codecs, a definition of quality is necessary. The number of frames per second (fps) is usually the objective measurement of video quality. ?Broadcast quality video? is an overused term that typically means 25 to 35 fps. Independent of theoretical rates, most live video streamed on the internet through broadband is in the range of 10 to 15 fps. It?s not like HDTV or like movies in the theater, but it is sufficient for the purpose.JPEG transmits video like a movie. Each full picture frame from the ?film strip? is transmitted and viewed. When the individual pictures, called frames, are accumulated together rapidly, they appear to display motion, just like a film strip.MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and others don?t send a full frame each time. They send what?s called an I-Frame, which is a full frame, only once in a while. In between the I-Frames, they only send the video data that change. So, if the image is from a fixed camera in a room where someone is walking, the wall doesn?t change, so the image of the wall is not sent with each frame. Only the spots where the person is moving are transmitted between the I-frames. This eliminates a lot of data without changing the quality of the video. So, with the same amount of data, the end result can be more frames per second. This is why MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 are said to offer higher quality video.What is bandwidth? Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be sent in a second, typically measured in kilobits per second (kbps). Did you ever notice how TV reporters on satellite phones sometimes look weird? They are usually transmitting at very low bandwidths of less than 5 fps. Have you asked yourself why cell phone voice plans typically can only transmit still video images, or video clips that are so slow that motion is not apparent? That?s because their maximum bandwidth is 9.6 kbps, also considered very low.Cell phone data plans and dial-up telephone service fall in the less than 56 kbps range. Broadband is above 56 kbps. Cable companies typically offer it in 128 kbps or 256 kbps increments. However, these are maximum rates. For example, dial-up telephone usually fluctuates between 30 and 45 kbps in the real world, even though it is theoretically 56 kbps.MPEG-4 and its many variants are pretty much the standard for sending video over broadband. Many different companies have developed their own unique twist to try to take into account variations in bandwidth that result in interruptions, pixilation and video tears. But, with a 256 kbps bandwidth, video can stream on average at 10 to 15 fps, and may even peak at 20 or 25 fps depending on the fluctuation. Unfortunately, on dial-up, the number of frames per second that these standard codecs can deliver is less than 5 frames per second, and often only 1 frame per second.Some new video codecs are allowing frame rates of 12 fps over dial-up services, in many ways comparable to the video offered over broadband. This has expanded the ability to transmit quality video through dial-up.To summarize the water pipe analogy, different video codecs can increase the water flow by increasing the number of frames per second at the end of the pipe without increasing the size of the pipe. Switching from dial-up to broadband is a way to increase the size of the pipe so that more frames per second can come out the end of the pipe.Cost is always a consideration, with dial-up being less expensive. Also, many people worldwide do not have the availability of broadband, so dial-up is their only option.Comet Video Technologies develops products and services for the low bandwidth transmission of video through satellites, cell voice plans, cell data plans, telephone dial-up and broadband. http: / / www.cometvt.comReaders have permission to duplicate and distribute the above article in its entirety.

***Is VoIP Internet Phone Service Right for You?*** Thousand unimarter UniMarter
***Is VoIP Internet Phone Service Right for You?***

Thousands of people each month are subscribing to VoIP service and having their regular telephone line disconnected. Internet phone service is a HUGE deal for us consumers, as it provides us with a super cheap alternative to traditional telephone service, and gives us something very important: CHOICES! Perhaps for the first time in our lives, we are no longer required to use our local phone company for telephone service ? isn?t that great?VoIP is not for everyone, though. There are some requirements and drawbacks to internet phone service that may or may not influence your decision to switch. Most people consider the potential issues associated with VoIP to be minor, and find that the low cost and free features of broadband phone service far outweigh any negatives.In order to understand the drawbacks of VoIP, it helps to understand a bit about what it is and how it works.A Brief Introduction to Internet Phone ServiceVoIP is the most popular acronym used to describe internet phone service. It stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol, which is a technical term describing a standard set of rules that define how voice signals are transmitted over the internet. Some other common terms used to describe VoIP are ?broadband phone service? and ?IP phone service?. As the term VoIP implies, INTERNET SERVICE IS REQUIRED in order to use VoIP.A small device called a ?VoIP adapter? is used to perform all of the complex functions required to make it possible for voice signals to be transmitted over the internet. The adapter is connected by network cable to your broadband modem or router, and another cable is directly connected to your telephone. There are other hardware configurations, but this is the most basic one. No phone jacks are required.During a telephone call, your conversation goes through the VoIP adapter and is routed over the internet to its final destination. This is why VoIP is so inexpensive - it doesn't rely on the telephone companies expensive network and switches. With VoIP internet phone service, you can call any phone anywhere in the world. The person you are calling does not have to also be using an internet phone.Potential Issues With VoIPAlthough internet phone service looks and acts just like regular phone service, there are some technological differences that can cause issues with your service from time to time.
E911 Dialing is a ?must have? for anyone using VoIP as their main phone line. This allows emergency calls to route to the closest 911 dispatch office and identifies your location to the emergency operator. Although in 2005 the FCC mandated that all VoIP companies provide E911 service to all subscribers, not all VoIP companies are offering this yet. It?s important to choose a VoIP provider that has E911 service available in your area ? your life could depend on it. You are responsible for keeping your E911 address current in order for this service to work properly. If you move and forget to change your address with your VoIP provider, emergency services will not be able to locate you.A ?live? internet connection is required in order to use VoIP, because calls are transmitted over the internet. This can present a problem when your internet service is down. Broadband is also required by most VoIP providers, because internet phone service needs to have enough bandwidth in order to work properly. Be sure you have reliable broadband internet service through a reputable provider if you?re planning on using VoIP as your primary phone.Power is required in order to use internet phone service. Without power, your cable / DSL modem won?t work, and your VoIP adapter won?t work ? you will have no phone service. If you live in an area that is prone to power outages, this might be a big issue for you. Existing phone wiring will not work with your new VoIP service unless you make some modifications. Traditional telephone wiring is designed to transmit to / from the phone company switch, not the internet. If you want to use your existing phones and phone jacks with VoIP you need to disconnect and reroute the telephone wire coming into your house. This is a fairly easy task but beyond the scope of this article. If you use an expandable cordless phone system with VoIP however, this totally eliminates the need to fool with any wiring.
Is Broadband Phone Service Right for You?These are some of the more common issues that you need to be aware of before making the switch to VoIP internet phone service. As with most things, there is usually an easy workaround that can minimize or prevent any problems. With 10 million VoIP subscribers in the United States alone, it?s obvious that the downside of VoIP is not keeping people away. When you consider the tremendous cost savings, free long distance calling and all the free calling features you get with internet phone service, most find that it?s no problem dealing with a few occasional inconveniences.Ready for VoIP? -

***What is Internet Phone Service?***

Internet phone service, broadband phone service, IP phone service and digital phone service are all terms that are commonly used to describe VoIP. Voice Over Internet Protocol is a technology that makes it possible for telephone calls to be made over the internet.Unlike traditional land-line service, internet phone service does not rely on the public switched telephone network (PSTN) that telephone companies use; it uses a broadband internet connection to route calls over the World Wide Web. Broadband phone service is unbelievably cheap because there are no high phone company fees involved.Internet phone calls originate on the internet, but do not have to terminate on an internet phone. You can use broadband phone service to call anyone anywhere in the world. The person you are calling does not have to be using internet phone service.There are two types of internet phone service that are very popular and widely used today ? hardware VoIP and software VoIP. Although both use the internet to route phone calls, hardware VoIP uses a small piece of equipment called a VoIP adapter to process calls and software VoIP (also known as softphone or SIP phone) uses your computer and a special software program for calling. Both hardware and software-based internet phone service provide a money saving alternative to regular land-line service, but each is best suited to meet a certain type of need.Software-Based Internet Phone ServiceBecause software-based internet phone service works via your computer, it works best for occasional use or for traveling. You have to have a PC with a sound card, speakers and microphone. For the best quality, it is recommended to use a headset with microphone, or a special device called a USB phone or IP phone. Once you have established an internet connection, you use a VoIP software program to make and receive calls. Although it is possible to make internet phone calls over a dial-up connection, broadband internet is recommended for the best quality.Most software-based VoIP providers allow you to download their software and set up an account for free. With most IP phone companies, ?in network? calls are usually free, and you only pay if when you make calls to outsiders. You can get really cheap international long distance rates with this type of service, and many people use it solely for this purpose. There are many good softphone internet phone service providers to choose from, including Skype, Net2Phone and WebPhone. Vonage, who has up until recently been a hardware-based VoIP provider, is now also offering software VoIP service.Hardware-Based Internet Phone ServiceHardware-based internet phone service is much easier to use, as it looks and feels just like regular land line phone service. This type of service is best suited for home and business use, as it requires no computer and you use regular telephones to make calls. Most people use this type of VoIP service as a replacement for traditional phone service. When people talk about broadband phone service, digital phone service or internet phone service, they are usually referring to hardware-based VoIP. The VoIP company you subscribe with provides a small device called a VoIP adapter, which connects to the internet on one side and to a telephone on the other. The adapter takes care of routing all calls to / from the internet.Broadband phone service requires a subscription, and you can normally choose between a ?limited? plan of 200-500 local and long distance minutes or an ?unlimited local and long distance calling? plan. With unlimited plans costing anywhere from $18 to $30 per month, the majority of internet phone service subscribers choose this because it is most cost-effective. All VoIP providers offer cheap international calling rates. Many have an optional ?unlimited international calling? plan that usually runs around $50 per month and includes local and domestic long distance as well. There are several good broadband phone service providers to choose from. Some of the better known VoIP providers are Vonage, SunRocket, Packet8 and AT&T CallVantage.Debbie is an information technology professional and author of the following sites about broadband phone service:Internet Phone Service - The Future is Here!

***Video Killed The Telephone Star ...***

You know the 80?s song, ?Video Killed the Radio Star.? It was a big hit and one of the first videos to air on MTV. Well, what came true for music video is on it?s way to becoming true for telephone.You?re the star of all your phone conversations already, right? Everyone loves to hear your voice and hold endless conversations on the phone with you ? well, you better get prepared to dress up for your appearances now too.Yup, video phones are now the newest trend to hit the market and it?s not being provided via your traditional phone carrier either. The video phone is available only through a broadband phone provider or phone supplier, but it is already taking off in the market as the next household necessity much like the cell phone and high speed Internet did.My Privacy ? I Just Got Out of the Shower!Before you worry about invasion of privacy issues, like just getting out of the shower, most video phones are optional in their viewing modes. This means you have the option of being on camera or not. Phew, got that off of your chest.The Entire GlobeNow the great part is that it is through the broadband voice providers that most broadband phone services are available globally. So it is very likely that if you have relatives afar, you can video phone with them overseas.Cost Savings with a CatchWith broadband phone calling, long distance or international is now running as low as 3 cents a minute or less so you don?t pay much to call at all. You might even call it a steal. What?s the catch? Well, it?s the video phones themselves. The phones run about $500.00 or more a piece. Yikes!With a little shopping ingenuity however you can find lower prices on these video phones. Packet8, a VoIP broadband phone company has a mail-in rebate for the time being on their line of video phones to notch down their price 50%. Their phones after rebate run at $250.00, which for many households, may still be a little too steep.History Promises the TrendDon?t get too discouraged by phone prices though, this trend is still in a growing stage. Cell phones are free these days and they use to be only afforded by the rich and famous. Everyone has a cell phone now, a camera phone for that matter. So if price holds you back now, you can anticipate lower prices and even free offers in the future.Video Phones Save On TravelIf you travel to visit relatives often or even once a year just to see them face to face, the video phone may very well pay for itself in travel expenses alone. So you can?t give them a hug, well would you believe there is a prototype for a virtual kissing phone coming out for cell phones? Yes, you can virtually smooch back and forth between another phone owner.Technology will never cease to amaze, and prices can?t stay up forever so eventually you will more than likely find yourself a consumer in the video phone market. Rest assured today?s growing technologies will have you saying, ?Back in my day.? I already say it.This article was written by Aaron Siegel of TopSavings.Net which provides consultive services for communications for households and businesses alike.Services available at the website include broadband phone services (Including Packet8), Phoneless DSL(SpeakEasy), Long Distance, Local Phone Services, Cellular services, and more.

***VoIP - Don't Make A Crucial Mistake - Advantages vs Disadvantages***

Before signing up to a VoIP provider you need to do your homework. Sure you learn what VoIP is about and you research which provider will be the best for you, but don?t make the vital error of not considering your current fixed line circumstance.First and foremost is the matter of whether the fixed line is going to be retained. In most cases it probably will be as either an backup in for emergency circumstances or where the fixed line may be cheaper for certain calls, especially if utilizing either VoipStunt or Skype which clearly point out they do not nor intend to provide emergency calling access.In certain countries you need to retain the fixed line for your broadband service so this must be factored into the overall cost comparison of a fixed line service versus a VoIP service or combination there of.A further complication occurs where bundling occurs. That is discounts if local calls, national or long distance calls and broadband service are all combined with the one provider. In the case of one provider you will pay $29.95 line rental, $49 which allows a cap of $120 of local, long distance and mobile phone calls, and $39 for broadband internet access totaling about $118 a month. For someone on this providers bundle wishing to take up VoIP, you would remove the $49 for calls, retain the line rental to provide broadband access and because the bundle is removed (no local or long distance calls retained) the cost of the broadband service increases by $20 to $59.It is clear from the above example that you would need to be making significant calls at very low VoIP rates to make the change or VoIP addition worthwhile as there would only be $29 to absorb monthly VoIP provider costs.The other alternative however in this case is to get a cheaper broadband internet service which then provides more scope to cash in on accessing telephone calls over the internet and over all reducing communications costs.SummaryIt is crucial to examine current telecommunication costs prior to signing up with a paid VoIP provider service. This does not however impact upon accessing free VoIP providers as a second telephone service.The Author has an Associate Diploma in Electronic Engineering.

***Bored of Your Phone Bills? Try VoIP at Home or Business***

Do you think that your phone bills are too big? Are you tired of big sums which you are to pay monthly for landline and long distance calls? Do you want your costly phone calls to become cheap phone calls? Then this article is for you. Here I'll tell you about IP-telephony which is also known as VoIP, IP phone, Internet Telephony or Broadband Phone.As communication plays such a great role in our lives that we can hardly imagine them without cell-phones, faxes, regular mail services, emails and of course telephones, it's very important that our talks don't cost us too much. We are so busy, that sometimes don't have enough time to meet our friends. And sometimes when we even have time, our friends are far away from us. The cheapest and the easiest to use services like chats, ICQ, and forums, but they can't substitute personal touch provided by phone and his alternative - IP phone.So, what is VoIP? Generally, VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a system for transmitting voice over Internet, converting information from analog to the digital form when it comes across the network and then back to analog when it arrives to the receiver. Thus, VoIP is a modern technology used for making telephone calls via Internet. Using VoIP you can also send fax, not only voice through the Internet. Everyone who has a computer, which is connected to the Internet can use VoIP.One of the main advantages of internet phone is that its users pay only for their usual Internet connection and fabulously small fee for phone calls. The other advantage is that with IP telephony you can communicate with every location on the Earth where the computer connected to the Internet is. Also, this kind of communication is pretty cost-effective, so you can use cheap pc to phone call worldwide.

***Sunrocket Internet Phone Service - One of the Best VoIP Provid unimarter UniMarter
***Sunrocket Internet Phone Service - One of the Best VoIP Providers for the Money***

Sunrocket internet phone service is probably the best VoIP value available in the United States today. At $199 for a year?s worth of unlimited local and long distance calling within the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico, Sunrocket?s annual plan works out to only $16.58 per month. With this annual broadband phone service plan, you need to pay the $199 up front, but you will never see any additional charges. Sunrocket?s VoIP plans are ?all-inclusive?, meaning there are no extra fees commonly associated with other telephone service and cellular service providers. Sun Rocket does not charge extra for the various FCC and governmental access fees, and there are no add-on taxes either. What you see is what you get with Sunrocket, which is one of the really nice things about this VoIP provider.Unique Features Regarding Sunrocket?s Unlimited Annual VoIP PlanSunrocket offers some really unique ?freebies? for annual subscribers that not common with most VoIP services. For starters, you get a free extra phone number to use as you wish. This number can either be a local phone number or an ?anywhere? phone number, the choice is yours. Some people use the extra number as a second local number and give it to a child. What kid wouldn?t want his / her own private phone number? Those with home offices can use it as a separate business number. If you like, you can get the extra phone number in a different area code, allowing ?local? calling from a different state. This is a great for subscribers who have family in a different area of the country, as they can then call you anytime for free. The number is local to them, so no long distance charges are incurred.Sunrocket also provides free Enhanced 911 Service (E911) to all subscribers, a service that many VoIP providers charge extra for. E911 is important to have if VoIP is used as your primary residential phone service because internet phone service is by nature not associated with a physical location. E911 technology allows subscribers to enter their current physical address into the system. When an emergency call is made, it is routed to the closest 911 dispatcher, and your address is transmitted as well. Without E911, you would have to tell the emergency services operator your location. E911 provides this information up front, allowing for faster and more efficient response to emergencies.Other freebies include two free directory assistance calls per month, and $3 per month of free international calling. You might not think that $3 will go very far when making international calls, but with Sunrocket international rates as low as .03 per minute to 41 countries and cities, this works out to 100 free international minutes for calling places like Europe, Japan, China, Malaysia, Monterey, Mexico City and more. If the country you want to call is not included in one of the .03 per minute ?sunspots?, Sunrocket?s international rates to most international destinations are still much cheaper than most other providers.Sunrocket Calling FeaturesOne of the great things about any internet phone service is all the free calling features that come with it. Like most VoIP providers, Sunrocket service includes free caller ID, call waiting, call return, 3-way conference calling, call forwarding and voicemail. There are around 14 free features with Sun Rocket VoIP; not quite as many as companies like Vonage and Packet8 offer, but these providers are more expensive as well.About SunrocketSunrocket was founded in 2004, and is committed to providing high-quality, low cost residential VoIP service with ?no-hassle? pricing. Sunrocket?s top management includes highly experienced people from the internet / information technology industry. CEO Lisa Hook used to be President of AOL Broadband, Premium and Developer Services. Their CIO Robert Kramer formerly served as Senior Vice President, Business Technologies at America Online, Inc.Sunrocket is probably the fastest growing internet phone service provider in America, and their service area is expanding quickly as well. As of January 2006, Sunrocket service was available to 75% of U.S. households, including 96 of the top 100 United States markets. Sun Rocket offers ?unconditional satisfaction? and will provide a reasonable refund to any subscriber who is not completely satisfied with the service.In addition to the annual service plan, Sunrocket also offers a "limited" monthly plan which includes 200 minutes of local and long distance calling.To learn more about Sunrocket and other VoIP service providers:Sunrocket Review

***Broadband Phone Service is Not VoIP*** Ever come across a unimarter UniMarter
***Broadband Phone Service is Not VoIP***

Ever come across a site that claims broadband phone is also
known as VoIP or vise verse? Or a web page that explains
PC-to-phone is VoIP? How about Internet phone service? VoIP
right? Wrong! VoIP is neither broadband phone, PC-to-phone
or Internet phone service. It's time to set the record
straight once and for all.VoIP is an abbreviation for Voice over Internet Protocol.
VoIP is a technology that makes such things as broadband
phone service, PC-to-phone, and Internet phone service
possible by using the Internet to send and receive phone
calls. The technology is VoIP while the means are broadband
phone or PC-to-phone and the like.So now we know what broadband phone isn't, I suppose this
would be a good place to explain what it is, exactly.
Broadband phone service as discussed before, uses VoIP
technology to send and receive phone calls using your
regular everyday household touch tone corded or wireless
telephone.Technically broadband phone service doesn't even need your
computer to work, you just need a broadband Internet
connection, and both DSL or cable broadband will work.
You'll also need a broadband telephone adaptor to plug your
phone line into instead of the usual wall jack. Pretty
simple huh?What broadband phone service allows you to do is bypass your
telephone company, and connect your call directly to the
same grid your phone company uses. Can you guess what that
is? Right, the Internet. All this time your phone company
has charged you just to connect your call to the Internet!
What a rip off, right?Now just wait, it gets better. So far Uncle Sam and the
telcos have not been able to tax or collect on sir charges
as had been the case for many years with your landline phone
company. Right now additional charges are very minimal. Did
you know that taxes and hidden fee's can make up as much as
20% of your landline phone bill?Now on to PC-to-phone service. PC-to-phone works in much the
same way broadband phone works, but without an adapter.
Instead you just need a headset or speakers and microphone
and PC-to-phone software installed on your computer. You can
use PC-to-phone to call someones phone from your computer,
and sometimes people can even call your computer.Now before you get excited, PC-to-phone is not free. The
cent per minute rates are low for long distance, but you
normally get charged the same amount for a local call. Whats
worse, PC-to-phone services actually do no service for you
at all. It uses the software that you downloaded and host on
your computer to track your calls, and doesn't cost them a
penny when you make a call. You're just paying for the
software over, and over, and over again.Internet phone service is just a vague term for broadband
and PC-to-phone type services. So now that you know what
VoIP is not, and what broadband phone service and
PC-to-phone is, why are you still using that landline phone?
Broadband phone service is without any doubt the cheapest
phone service on the planet and is the best way to take
advantage of VoIP technology. Not to mention, it finally
gives you a way to "stick it" to your phone company.Daymon Hoag is founder of Cheapest Service and provisioner of quality Broadband Phone Service

***Security / Privacy for Home VoIP - Don't Just Think VoIP*** unimarter UniMarter
***Security / Privacy for Home VoIP - Don't Just Think VoIP***

Much disussion has centred around the security and privacy aspects of VoIP as well as significant issues in relation to emergency calls. This article will focus on the importance of considering the wider implications of security in the context of utilsing VoIP.There are numerous security concerns with VoIP with two common ones being the privacy aspect of eavesdropping in on a conversation and a second being the hacking into and use of a VoIP users account.It is arguable that focus in relation to security aspects of VoIP technology has and continues to be improved and addressed. Even if this is not the case are there bigger holes elsewhere? Most VoIP users are operating on something other than a dedicated VoIP computer, network, broadband link. That is they are using an existing computer and everything that goes with and on it as well as a broadband link utilized for general internet purposes.Thus the same risks and concerns in relation to security of personal computers and data transmissions therefrom is extremely relevant to the VoIP world. This is especially relevant if using software applications as a telephone rather than a standard telephone through an Analog Telephone Adaptor (ATA).In the case of software on a home PC it would therefore be vital to secure the PC and operating system to the highest level possible by use of firewall(s) and anti virus software for starters. This should be obvious but how many users don?t keep their firewall and anti virus software updated along with the operating system as new security exploitations are encountered and security upgrades supplied?Additionally consider all things wireless. Anything wireless means a radiocommunications transmitter at the departure point and a receiver at the other allowing the possibility of interception somewhere inbetween. For example users of a Wireless LAN such as one compliant with the 802.11 standard would need to consider security in relation to the wireless or radiocommunication transmission aspect.Whilst things have come a long way from the days of non encrypted cordless phones and analog mobile phones that could be intercepted on a commercially available scanning receiver, along with Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) decoders meaning not only could conversations be listened in on but PINs, account numbers etc entered via the keypad could be decoded, you do not want to be the car with the mobile phone visible on the front seat or the house with the door or window left unlocked.By examining, assessing and addressing the basic security aspects in relation to PC / server setup along with increasing security for the Voice Over Internet Protocol technology, it is hoped that the analogy could be drawn that so many others are more vulnerable that you will either go unnoticed or not be targeted due to the availability of much easier and worthwhile targets.Summary
Whilst many questions still surround security of certain aspects of VoIP usage, there are other basic security considerations which if left unaddressed will definitely leave the user vulnerable in not only the VoIP sense but with all data storage and transmission aspects.The Author has an Associate Diploma in Electronic Engineering.

***The Best VoIP Service - Sunrocket vs. Vonage and Packet8***

Sunrocket internet phone service is one of the best VoIP deals available today for those looking for quality service at an inexpensive price. Once a very small player in the broadband phone game, Sunrocket has been growing by leaps and bounds and is now considered one of the best VoIP companies. With call quality comparable to top of the line broadband phone service providers Vonage and Packet8, Sunrocket is the leader when it comes to price.Currently at $199 per year for unlimited local and long distance calling, Sunrocket will save you $100 a year compared to Vonage?s annual price of $299.88. Annual savings over Packet8?s 12 month price of $239.88 is around $40. With call quality being about equal among these three VoIP providers, if you?re looking for cheap unlimited local and long distance domestic phone service without a lot of extra bells and whistles, Sunrocket is the way to go.Comparing VoIP PlansAll three providers include free Canada calling with their unlimited plans, online account management and billing, voicemail, voicemail to email, three way conference calling, call forwarding, call waiting, call return and speed dial. These basic features are pretty much standard among all VoIP service providers, and are included free. For most average telephone users who are used to land line service, these features are a nice ?bonus?, as most POTS (plain old telephone service) users have to pay extra to get these enhancements.Sun Rocket offers very low international rates, with many calling locations as low as .03 per minute. As a special promotion that has been running for some time, Sunrocket gives new subscribers a free cordless phone when they sign up via a referral.At $24.99 per month, Vonage offers a larger set of features as well as unlimited international calling to most of Western Europe. Vonage has more enhanced features than Sunrocket, such as caller ID with name, call transfer, ring lists, international call blocking and click to call computer calling. International rates are very competitive.For $19.99 per month, Packet8 also offers a larger set of free features with their unlimited local and long distance plan including caller ID blocking, anonymous call blocking, simultaneous ringing on multiple phone numbers, and a ?find me, follow me? feature that can be set to ring different phone numbers one at a time until someone answers. Packet 8 also offers an optional video phone plan that is used with the video telephone they sell. This allows you to make videoconferencing phone calls with other video phone users. As like most VoIP providers, Packet 8 offers very competitive international rates. An unlimited international calling plan is available for an additional fee.When comparing VoIP providers, you can see that all digital phone service plans are not created equal. If low cost is your primary goal, you make little to no international calls and you are happy with basic features, Sunrocket is a great choice. If you make frequent calls to Western Europe and want some extra features, Vonage is the option for you. If you want extra features, primarily call within the U.S. and Canada, or want to use video conferencing, Packet8 is an excellent choice.No matter which internet phone service provider you choose, as long as you stick with a highly rated VoIP company that has a reputation for good voice quality of calls, you can?t go wrong. Broadband phone service is the future of telecommunications, and you can save a lot of money on phone bills by switching to VoIP. The only requirement is a broadband internet connection. For home or small business users, cable internet service will provide the biggest savings, as most DSL service requires a land line telephone service account.To learn more about Packet8 VoIP service, visit http: / / www.savewith8.com.

***Making a Call Using VoIP*** Voice over Internet Protocol unimarter UniMarter
***Making a Call Using VoIP***

Voice over Internet Protocol also known as VoIP, IP Telephony, Internet Telephony and Broadband Phone, is revolutionising the way in which we make long distance phone calls. VoIP has made it possible to provide a method of communication very similar to the standard telephone network, using an Internet connection.The increases in Internet bandwidth, when combined with the advances of audio compression and machine speed has allowed VoIP services to be capable of a high quality, sometimes even better than the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). However, many users are also likely to accept a drop in quality for the benefit of free long distance calls that using VoIP gives you. This being the case, an even wider range of people are able and likely to use these systems. It is not surprising therefore that VoIP is increasingly being used today.With VoIP, there's not just one way to make a call. There are actually three:Analogue Telephone Adapter (ATA) - With VoIP, you are able to use your existing telephone handsets, eliminating the cost of having to purchase any additional hardware. Currently, the most commonly used VoIP method is using an ATA which simply connects to your regular telephone and to your Internet connection. The ATA is an analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) which takes the analogue signal (your voice) from your regular phone and converts it into digital data ready to be transmitted over the Internet. An ATA can either be purchased or provided free when you sign up with a VoIP Service Provider. Utilising an ATA is very basic, simply plug the cable from your phone into the ATA instead of the wall socket, and you're set.IP Phones- IP Phones look just like standard telephones. They have a handset, buttons and a cradle. IP phones use an RJ-45 Ethernet connector instead of the standard RJ-11 phone connector. They already contain the relevant circuitry to convert your voice into digital data. An IP phone is more convenient for taking advantage of many of the extra features that are included free with your VoIP account - call display, call waiting, call forwarding, voicemail plus many other others. Wi-Fi IP phones are also now available allowing you to make VoIP calls from any Wi-Fi point.
An additional benefit that makes VoIP so attractive for home and small business users is flexibility. With VoIP, you can make a call anywhere there is broadband connection. Incoming VoIP calls can be automatically re-directed to your VoIP phone regardless of the location, as long as it is connected to the Internet. For business travellers, this means they can take their phone or ATA with them on their travels, and never miss a home phone call.Computer-to-Computer - Also known as SoftPhones, this is the most traditional and possibly the easiest way to use VoIP. With this method you can make free Internet phone calls worldwide. All that is required is a PC connected to a broadband internet connection, and a headset consisting of earphones and microphone connected to the soundcard of your computer. You will also need to download and install VoIP software. With the software installed, invite all your friends to download the same software and when someone is up and running, give them a call! VoIP software is free to download, and allows you to make completely free VoIP calls to other users of the same software, regardless of distance.Instant messenger programs based on VoIP such as Skype, Yahoo! Messenger, and Gizmo Project also have the ability to be mobile, enabling you to receive and make phone calls using VoIP technology.Sunny Keer is an expert and an avid user of VoIP technology.

***VoIP ? A Current Comparison of Skype vs Vonage***

You have read about VoIP and wish to utilize the service either to get free calls to friends also using the service or for full telephony abilities. Either way, what is the current offers from two big VoIP providers? This article will do a comparison of the three VoIP providers to give the reader a starting point of where they may wish to look for a service.Skype
With Skype calls to other Skype clients are free regardless of location.However if you wish to make calls to non Skype clients then this is called ?SkypeOut?. Calls can be made to the 20 most popular call destinations for the one SkypeOut global rate. At the time of writing this rate was 1.7 Euro Cents per minute equating to about 2 US cents or 1.1 pence. With SkypeOut there is no line rental and no contract fees.The SkypeOut global rate includes the following countries:Argentina (Buenos Aires), Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Canada (mobiles), Chile, China (Beijing, Guanzhou, Shanghai, Shenzhen), China (mobiles), Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hong Kong (mobiles), Ireland, Italy, Mexico (Mexico City, Monterrey), Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland (Poland, Gdansk, Warsaw), Portugal, Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg), Singapore, Singapore (mobiles), South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan (Taipei), United Kingdom, United States (except Alaska and Hawaii) and United States (mobiles).It should be noted that unless specifically mentioned, this rate is only applicable to regular landline telephones with mobiles more expensive. However note that Canada, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and United States are listed under the SkypeOut global rate for calling mobiles.Other destinations are available and it would be advisable to check this rate prior to obtaining credits or calling.Skype voicemail is available for a fee of 5 Euro for 3 months or 15 Euro for 12 months.SkypeIn is where you wish to have a conventional phone number so you can be called from conventional phones. The fee for this service is 10 Euro for 3 months and 30 Euro for 12 months. Voicemail is included free if you subscribe to SkypeIn.
(source : www.skype.com).Vonage
Vonage provides local and long distance calling anywhere in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico for the one price with calls to select European countries free with their unlimited plans.In this article the two lowest fee packages will be examined.
Basic 500 ? This includes 500 minutes for outgoing calls in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico for $14.99 a month. Unlimited minutes for incoming calls and 3.9 cents for each additional minute over 500 outgoing minutes with rates for other destinations.Premium Unlimited Plan ?

It is hoped that from the information provided, each individual can relate their own circumstances and call patterns to establish which one of these two VoIP providers would be the best fit if it was down to the two. It must be remembered there is a vast range of VoIP providers.Whilst all care has been taken, it is advised to confirm all rates and information via each individual VoIP provider.The Author has an Associate Diploma in Electronic Engineering.

***VoIP - More Basic than a Basic How To*** Have you not eve unimarter UniMarter
***VoIP - More Basic than a Basic How To***

Have you not even heard the expression VoIP or Voice over internet protocol. It provides the ability to make phone calls over the internet at very low cost or even free. But what is it all about and how do you use it?VoIP has several different ways in which it can be utilized. The first method is known as a softphone which basically means you download some software from a provider like Skype or VoipStunt, connect up a headset, set up the account and away you go. In other articles I have written I have provided comparisons of several providers including Skype, VoipStunt and Vonage.The second method of making phone calls over the internet is by having an account with a VoIP provider such as Vonage or Skype (or Engin in Australia) and utilizing a piece of hardware known as an ATA or Analog Telephone Adaptor. This connects to your internet connection through an Ethernet connection to your ADSL or cable modem and allows connection of a standard telephone being normal, cordless or DECT. Often you can also connect a fax.Methods of Operation
There are varying methods of operation. You may only wish to make outgoing calls through VoIP which means you will not need a ?normal? type phone number. If you wish to receive incoming calls from landline telephones, ie the caller isn?t calling over the internet using VoIP, you will need to have that service ability with your provider and a number to go with it.It is possible that you can retain your fixed line and have both VoIP and normal PSTN to the ATA which will mean both will ring at the same time. Additionally if there is a blackout or power failure you can still connect to the PSTN.You will need to review your providers conditions to work out costs of calling outside of the VoIP network. In many cases this can still be free or very low cost indeed, including overseas calls. Often there is a flat rate for local and long distance calls but again this varies from Voip provider to provider. As mentioned earlier, previous articles I have written compare some of the services offered by the larger VoIP players.There is an issue to consider around emergency calls. Skype and VoipStunt openly include in their terms and conditions that they do not provide access to emergency services calls. For this reason they are realistically utilized as a second phone service. However certainly in Australia, Engin provide access to emergency services through the triple zero 000 emergency number. Many people now have mobile phones so access to emergency services is much more available anyway.Equipment
From earlier in the article you can see that equipment needed and relevant costs can vary from a headset, to an ATA or analog telephone adaptor. These are not overly expensive and often available for free or cheap when joining a VoIP provider. A google search or visit to eBay will provide ability to get updated on current costs however it does not cost a fortune to commence accessing cheap or free phone calls.Summary
This article has looks at the absolute basics of VoIP and how to get started. Further articles, information about VoIP products can be accessed by reading previous articles I have written.The Author has an Associate Diploma in Electronic Engineering.

***The Truth About VoIP*** VoIP has slowly made its way into unimarter UniMarter
***The Truth About VoIP***

VoIP has slowly made its way into the US mainstream. Currently more than 50% of Americans have or know about VoIP services (Most just know about it.). This is surprising, when only about 17% currently have broadband high speed internet. Some of those who have heard of VoIP did so from a high dollar marketing plan by one of the VoIP providers.Why haven't many people switched from their traditional phone service to the more affordable VoIP service?Many have been cautious of the 911 service, which is still being implemented by some VoIP providers and all of them do not cover many remote areas in the US. Currently providers are working on getting the whole of the US covered. We've heard stories of individuals calling 911 but only to have the emergency team respond to a wrong address. This is normally the fault of the VoIP subscriber not reporting a move of residence to their carrier. Also many VoIP services are transient and when they travel, 911 services are still located at their home residence or business. You will find that a few companies are working on including a GPS system into their VoIP devices, which will allow 911 services to pinpoint the individual's location. VoIP is still as reliable or better as a cell phone when it comes to 911 services.Another concern of VoIP consumers is the loss of service when power goes out. This can be easily and somewhat inexpensively overcome by purchasing a battery back-up unit for your VoIP system. This not only will support your VoIP service during a power outage but will also prevent you from losing any work you may be doing on your PC.Quality of calls once was a major issue for subscribers, but now has become less of a concern due new upgrades by providers and better informed users about their set-ups. When you compare VoIP with cellular services, VoIP will nearly always have a much better quality and is comparable to traditional phone service quality or in many cases surpasses it.The truth with VoIP is that it is a great way to save over traditional phone costs. It may require a bit more attention than your old phone service, but the money it puts back into your pocket is worth it.By Scott SowleFor more VoIP Information go to http: / / www.altabroadband.com

***Packet8 Review***

Packet8 internet phone service is one of the top VoIP service providers in the United States and Canada. They are owned by 8X8, Inc., which is a U.S. company located in Santa Clara, CA. In business since 1987, 8X8 has made a significant contribution to the development and advancement of broadband phone technology.VoIP (voice over internet protocol) phone service made its public debut in 1995, and 8X8 introduced Packet8 broadband phone service for residential use in 2002. In 2004, Packet8 introduced internet phone service for small to medium businesses, and was also the first VoIP provider to deliver video phone service. Using technologies that they have developed and patented themselves, Packet8 has become one of today?s best VoIP providers in terms of service, reliability, and market share. As a Packet8 user for over a year now, I can personally attest to their ongoing commitment to constant improvement and quality service.Offering unlimited local and long distance service within the US and Canada for $19.95 per month, Packet8 is one of the lowest cost internet phone service providers in the USA. Great features like voicemail, voicemail to email, call forwarding, call waiting, caller ID, call return, and call blocking are available for free; and this is just a small sampling of the free features they give you!

Enhancements planned for summer 2006 are caller ID with name and a new soft phone service called Packet8 Softalk. A soft phone is a PC-based telephone; most of the larger VoIP carriers are now offering softphone service due to the huge popularity of the service that Skype is now famous for.Packet 8?s main competitors are Vonage, AT&T CallVantage and VoIP service offered by local cable television providers. At $24.99 per month for Vonage unlimited residential service and $29.99 per month for unlimited local and long distance calling with AT&T, Packet8 is the clear leader when it comes to price. Unlimited internet phone service offered by cable companies is currently averaging around $40 per month, depending on the cable provider (cable companies often refer to VoIP telephony as "digital phone service"). All these VoIP carriers offer similar free features and unlimited local and long distance within the USA and Canada. Vonage now includes free calls to Italy, France, Spain, UK and Ireland in their unlimited plan, which makes Vonage service the better buy if you often call these countries.Although VoIP usage statistics vary, it is estimated that there are around 48 million internet phone users today. Within the next 5 years the number of people using VoIP is projected to grow to 100 million. Due to the portability of VoIP, the tremendous cost savings vs. traditional telephone ?land lines?, and the included features available for free ? VoIP is here to stay.VoIP is so easy to install and use that the hardest thing about broadband phone service is choosing a provider.

***VoIP Terminology Explained For Beginners***

It could be quite intimidating for the new person to Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) with most articles or literature using significant amounts of jargon. This article will provide an overview of the terminology used in the VoIP arena but will not go into the actual detail of how VoIP works. Other articles by this author have been written in relation to basics of VoIP.The first crucial term is VoIP which is the acronym for Voice Over Internet Protocol or Voice Over IP being the ability to make telephone calls over the internet. Other relevant terms are included below along with a layman?s explanation:ATA ? Analog Telephone Adaptor ? A device which converts analog telephone signal into a digital format for transmission over the Internet.Codec ? A compression / decompression algorithm used in IP telephony.Ethernet ? Used for Local Area Networks (LANs) and is a packet based transmission protocol.PSTN ? Public Switched Telephone Network ? that is the standard landline based phone system.QoS ? Quality of Service ? Refers to performance of the transmission system. For example is there any echo or delay.SIP ? Session Initiation Protocol ? An application layer protocol that manages multimedia communications sessions.VoIP Phone ? Telephone device that looks like an ordinary telephone that connects to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) however has an Ethernet port to allow connection to a TCP / IP computer network.So next time you are reading some literature or articles on VoIP where the writers or authors do not define the acronyms, you will know a little more about what exactly they are trying to say. Whilst there are obviously many more acronyms and jargon associated with VoIP, this article provides a starting point. It is suggested that this article should be read in conjunction with previous articles relating to the basics of VoIP.The Author has an Associate Diploma in Electronic Engineering.

***Security Issues with VoIP***

Are you acquainted to the pace with which IP telephony is catching up?With major telecommunication carriers, in the process of preparing to launch VoIP applications it is heading towards a prime time. However a new sense of urgency is developing with the risk of wide spread security violation as VoIP technology is gaining popularity.Until now VoIP security was not a volatile subject, since IP voice traffic remained on local and wide area enterprise networks mostly but VoIP usage becoming widespread has raised concerns over the VoIP security-security of voice data transferred since these voice networks are IP based and special call signal internet protocols that carry these data contains flaws.To combat threats on VoIP security system it is essential to first device a method of sending VoIP traffic through firewalls. Which can block or restrict data packets due to their inbuilt security functions. Until then we are all susceptible to security breaches like denial of service attacks, tapping, loss of data, snooping.The apprehensions attached with VoIP security are the major deterrents in the popularity and acceptance of IP telephony. Issues like invasion of privacy, eves-dropping are a serious matter and one would not want to fall victims to them. And it is this feeling of venerability that discourages people to adopt VoIP technology.However there is a newer technology which has developed not very late ago. It?s called VPN (Virtual Private Network) ?it?s a wonderful way to connect through VoIP, fully guarding your concerns on breach of security. VPN forms a personal gateway between two users with the help of routers and forbids any attempts of intrusion. Although placing routers is an expensive affair altogether but many broadband service providers have begun offering a separate VPN servers to their routers.Hence to ensure a secured calling experience with VoIP, choose a broadband service provider supporting VPN routers. And you could get the best of VoIP telephony.Webmaster

***Internet Phone Service Results in Big Cost Savings and Many Ad unimarter UniMarter
***Internet Phone Service Results in Big Cost Savings and Many Added Benefits***

While discussing money saving tips with some colleagues today, all were amazed at the incredible savings and benefits that are achieved by making a simple switch to broadband phone service. For people like me who have cable internet service (I use Roadrunner), it makes good economical sense to leverage this high speed internet connection and also use it as a replacement for land-line telephone service.Cost Savings with VoIP Before switching to Packet8 VoIP service, I paid around $40 a month for local telephone service and an average of $50 a month for long distance calls. Meanwhile I pay $40 a month for cable internet. My total monthly cost for internet plus telephone averaged $130, or $1560 per year. Now I use Packet 8 for unlimited local and long distance calling over my cable connection for only $24 per month (which includes all taxes, fees, and enhanced 911 service). Combined with my $40 per month cable internet cost, my total annual expenditure for phone plus high speed internet is $888. Switching to internet phone service resulted in an instant savings of $672 per year for me.Additional Benefits of VoIP In addition to the financial benefits of VoIP internet phone service, there are a lot of extra ?perks? that you get when you use broadband phone. All of the top VoIP providers include a rich package of free telephone features with every internet phone service subscription. Although features vary from provider to provider, you can expect to get the following features for free with just about any good VoIP provider: Voice mail, call waiting, caller id, call blocking, call forwarding, voicemail to email, call return, three way conference calling, and online account management / feature management (you can turn on / off any features you want to totally customize your telephone service).Unlimited Local and Long DistanceAlthough most VoIP carriers offer a limited as well as an unlimited calling plan, most people get the unlimited local and long distance calling plan, which normally includes calls to Canada. It is generally only a few dollars more a month to get totally unlimited calling, which allows you to talk as long as you want for absolutely no additional charge. This is a nice feature to have, especially when you have a lot of long distance friends and relatives.Cheap International Calling All VoIP carriers offer extremely cheap international rates, making internet phone service the most economical way to talk to loved ones in other countries. Some VoIP providers like Packet8 and Lingo offer unlimited international calling plans as well.Portability of VoIPAnother great benefit of broadband phone service is its portability. You can take your VoIP phone with you wherever you move to, and can even keep the same number. All that?s required on your part is a broadband connection. You can also have several ?virtual phone numbers?, allowing you to have a main number in your local area code and another number in a totally different area code. This is really handy if you live far away from family, but want to make it easy for them to stay in touch by providing them with a ?local number to use. For businesses that want to have a local presence in different states, virtual numbers are the cheap way to do it. Most carriers charge around $5 a month for each additional phone number.VoIP QualityAs for quality of service, I can personally vouch for Packet8 as this is the VoIP carrier I use. I have used Packet8 as my one and only internet phone service for more than a year now, and have never had any serious quality issues with the service. Occasional issues such as ?echo? or ?fast busy? can quickly be corrected by unplugging the voip router for a minute. This ?resets? the connection and has always cured any issue I have had. If all else fails, Packet 8?s technical support staff is fast and efficient.Judging from comments left on various VoIP user forums, it seems that the larger VoIP providers like Packet8, Sunrocket and Vonage are having fewer and fewer issues with quality of service as time goes by. Internet phone service is still a relatively new technology, and quickly becoming the telephony method of choice for everyone. Millions of people around the world use broadband phone and hundreds of new subscribers are added every day. VoIP providers (particularly the big ones) are continually making improvements and enhancements to service in order to be your ?VoIP carrier of choice?.Debbie Jacobsen is an IT professional and author of SaveOnPhoneService.com ? an informative website about Broadband Phone Service.

***VoIP Telephone Service Vs. Traditional Phone Service: Underst unimarter UniMarter
***VoIP Telephone Service Vs. Traditional Phone Service: Understanding How It Works***

Over the past 6 years I have been watching the growth of the Internet Based Telephone Industry. With the bursting popularity of Broadband or High Speed Internet like DSL, Cable Modem, or Satellite, telephone service has become a natural addition of applications to run over the Internet.Many people are not aware that most of the major telephone companies use the Internet to route their long distance calls already and have been for years. They use a protocol called SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) to offer Voice Over IP (VoIP). This same protocol is available in many of the leading messaging programs like Skype, MSN, AOL, etc ... For many years people have been using this protocol to talk over long distances on their computers using programs called ?Softphones?. Softphones are basically computer programs that run on computers and use the sound card in a computer to convert analogue sound, like a voice, to digital packets that can be carried over the Internet. Then some program or device on the other end can decode the packets and play them back. Of course it goes in both directions. Thus you can use it like a telephone.This same softphone technology is being embedded in small devices called Analog Telephone Adapters or ATAs. These devices have really become popular in the past few years and the quality of the devices have greatly increased. ATAs basically connect to a normal telephone in your house on one side and to the internet on the other. The ATA acts as a gateway translating the sound from the telephone into SIP that goes over the internet and eventually to the phone system where it is decoded and passed on to regular telephones.Many companies over the past 5 years have tried to make a business plan using ATA devices. The most popular is Vonage. Vonage has spent literally 10s of millions of dollars on advertising and have established a good market. Their latest adds say they are a million customers strong. I can remember when they were just in a few local markets. Many companies have followed their lead like USP Connect, Packet8, Sun Rocket, etc ? All these companies have worked out agreements with national and international carriers like ATT, MCI, WorldCom, etc? to pass to them SIP traffic and vice versa. This allows them to offer full residential telephone service over the Internet. The dirty little secret that telephone companies will not tell you is that, it is whole lot cheaper to route with SIP than normal analogue phone systems. Therefore, since these new companies do not have to pay for copper telephone wire in the ground like most telephone companies, or for big analogue based switches, their prices are a lot cheaper. Also, Internet based telephone systems are not taxed like local telephone companies. It is not uncommon to get telephone service from $9.99 for 500 minutes a month to $24.99 for unlimited long distance and local calls. You may have to pay a federal excise tax of $2.00 or so, but not all of the crazy taxes and fees like a company like Qwest would charge. It is impossible to understand the bill most of time with Qwest. Qwest, Verizon, SBC, Sprint and other local traditional telephone companies can charge more than $20 a month in taxes and fees. They advertise a $20.00 a month special but then add $20.00 in taxes and fees which are never explained to you. They also have a nasty habit of selling your telephone numbers to telemarketers that inundate you until you can get on the National Do Not Call List. On top of that they will charge you extra for Long Distance. I am always amazed the way people are brainwashed to think they are getting a good deal at $20.00 a month when in reality it is more like $55-$75 a month with taxes, fees, and extra packages.The other thing you get with SIP based phones are all the new bells and whistles like Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, Voice Mail, and 3 Way calling without additional cost. It is just included in their base packages. International calls are also significantly less expensive as well. It is not uncommon to be able to call Asia for 2 or 3 cents a minute or Europe of 1.5 cents a minute.Additionally, now it is possible to take an ATA anywhere in the world and call another ATA anywhere in the world on the same network for no long distance cost at all. All you need is a high speed internet access and just plug it in and connect it to a phone. You can get your local calls anywhere. You also can have virtual telephone numbers anywhere. If you live in one state, but would like people in another area to call you at no charge or with a local call, you can get a telephone number from that area and have it virtually routed to you ATA where ever you are. So you can have numbers in CA, NY, FL and WY all ringing the same ATA. You can get virtual 800 numbers. Never have anyone call you collect again. Give you children an 800 number to call you from college or from a payphones where ever they may be. This is really an exciting industry and growing quickly.Now there are some Cons to this type service. If the power goes out, the ATA turns off. So does your TV, refrigerator, air conditioner and all of your cordless phones in the house anyway. However, since you are not connecting to a computer, it can break without any repercussion on your service. The use of 911 is becoming more available with the advent of E911. Congress has mandated that all VoIP providers now support E911 that acts the same as regular 911. However there are some older areas in the world that are not equipped to receive E911 so the best the provider can do is give you the general emergency assistance number there. If you live in areas like this, use a cell phone for emergencies or keep a local land line for emergencies and dial long distance over SIP. It will still save you hundreds of dollars a year. You also may need a little assistance setting it up if you are technically challenged. However, be rest assured it is a one time setup of plugging the right wires where they go and you are off and going. So don?t be scared if you are over 60 years old. Your generation can benefit too from this technology.The best thing is that this industry is very competitive. Because of the low cost of the service, companies can do some attractive marketing plans. I personally use USPConnect because they offer a very aggressive referral program and have a very high quality of service. If you would like more information go to www.Free4LifeCalls.com.So don?t believe the hit pieces placed by local telephone companies bashing VoIP based phones. They are running scared. It is becoming very apparent that in the future traditional telephone service will become obsolete. They are all moving to VoIP, so you should too and take advantage of the great savings! I personally believe that telephone service should be free and I can use the money I save to go golfing or something.This ain?t your Daddy?s old land line Telco anymore! Times are a changin?.Wilford Lee

***The VoIP Insurgency*** There was a dreadful time in histo unimarter UniMarter
***The VoIP Insurgency***

There was a dreadful time in history when the telecom regime (local phone companies) held consumers captive by charging high prices for phone service. To make matters worse, this regime would nickel and dime consumers to death for additional features like voicemail, call waiting, caller ID, and call forwarding. Not to mention their customer service or lack thereof, was and still is a horrifying experience. This long history of monopolizing the telecommunication industry has finally come to an end. It?s time for a regime change. Consumers now have an alternative ? introducing VoIP.VoIP, also known as Voice over Internet Protocol, is a technology that allows you to make phone calls over an existing Internet connection instead of a regular (analog) phone line. Some services that use VoIP only allow you to call other people using the same service, usually done when making PC to PC phone calls. Other services allow you to call anyone, anywhere (as long as they have a telephone number) including: local & long distance, mobile, and international numbers. This type of VoIP service allows you to use a traditional phone that plugs directly into a phone adapter.The great thing about VoIP is that all the additional features are included in the monthly fee. These features include: unlimited local & long distance calls into the US & Canada, voicemail, call waiting, caller id, three-way, just to name a few. Most VoIP service providers typically charge between $20 and $25 dollars a month.VoIP is a revolutionary technology that has the potential to completely redesign the entire world?s communication infrastructure. VoIP providers have already been around for several years and growing at a tremendous rate. Currently, there are over 6 million users of VoIP worldwide and that numbers is growing exponentially.FAQ about VoIPCan you provide me with a brief explanation of VoIP?
VoIP allows you to make phone calls over an existing Internet connection. VoIP converts a voice signal (analog) from your phone into a digital signal that then travels over the Internet to the desired location. It then converts the digital signal back to analog so the person on the other end can hear what you are saying.How do I make a VoIP phone call?
The first step of making a VoIP phone call is to subscribe to a service. Once you sign up for service, the VoIP service provider will then send you a broadband phone adapter, which plugs directly into your internet connection. You will then have to plug your existing telephone into the phone adapter. Lastly, all you have to do is pick up the phone and dial the number.What kind of equipment do I need to use VoIP?
You need three things in order to use VoIP: 1) A high-speed Internet connection (either cable or DSL); A broadband phone adapter (provided by the VoIP service provider); and 3) any standard (analog or digital) phone.Is there a difference when placing a local or long distance call when using VoIP?
Not really. VoIP phone calls are made just the same way as traditional calls are made. When dialing local calls, all you have to do is dial 7 digits (555-1212) and when dialing long distance, all you have to do is dial 11 digits (1-408-555-1212).Can I call anyone using VoIP?
Yes. You can call anyone, anywhere as long as they have a valid phone number. It can be a local call, long distance call, international call, cell phone, toll free, 911 (assuming they have E911 capability)and 411 directory assistance. Most VoIP providers will not allow calls to 900 or 976 phone numbers, nor will they accept collect calls.What are some advantages of using VoIP?
1. Cost - Most VoIP providers charge between $20 and $25 a month.
2. Unlimited calling in the U.S and Canada.
3. All the features are included (voicemail, caller id, call waiting, 3-way, call forwarding and much more)
4. VoIP is portable. You can take the phone adapter anywhere where there is an existing Internet connection, plug it in and make calls if you were at home.
5. The ability to choose your own area code. You can live in New York and choose to have a California phone number.Are there any disadvantages of using VoIP?
Yes.1. If the power goes out in your home you will also lose your Internet connection, which means that your phone service will also be down. Some VoIP service providers offer a feature that allows customers to designate a forwarding number if their Internet connection goes down for any reason.2. Not all VoIP Providers offer E911. This means that if you call 911 from your VoIP phone, it may not go to the local public dispatcher. Rather, it will get routed to an answering service first.3. Call Quality. At certain times of the day, the call quality of phone conversations will suffer. This could be due to bandwidth sharing, or slow Internet connection.Do I need a computer to use VoIP?
No. Although most VoIP customers do have a computer, one is not needed. The broadband phone adapter simply plugs into a router (or modem) to get a connection.Can I use VoIP when I travel?
Yes. You can use your VoIP service wherever you travel as long as you have a high speed Internet connection available and you bring your broadband phone adapter and phone with you.How will I know if someone is calling me from a VoIP phone?
You won?t. The VoIP phone works just like a traditional phone. The quality and experience is that good.Join the rebellion aimed at overthrowing the telecommunications industry by force. Switch to VoIP today and start saving tomorrow.Click here for more in-depth information about voip products and services.Michael Brito is an internet marketing consultant and freelance writer for a variety of consumer related products.
