VoIP Information

I very recently got my first taste of VoIP a month or so back. Technically, I used "broadband phone," since I have a DSL connection, but it's all the same except the specificities. Anyhow, I was actually impressed! I couldn't say as to quality, since it was running through my computer sound system, but neither of us had any problem hearing one another, so it certainly accomplished what it was supposed to do - and it didn't cost me a dime!

The thing about my DSL is that I can't have a dial-up modem hooked-up to the same outlet as the DSL modem; neither of them will work. That's a real headache because I had my Caller-ID on my computer; now, I don't know who's calling me! However, seeing as how I have the DSL line and all, I'm looking into these VoIP services; I need to decide whether or not to cancel my landline service and just go for something through the Web. But I don't know anything about VoIP.

VOIP services Reviews are not all that easy to come by, actually. Offers are, but honest reviews just aren't. And my problem with purchasing any service online is that you never know what you're getting into, and it's usually near-impossible to get out of once you do. There are innumerable VoIP services, companies, and packages and you could lose entire weeks to surfing through them on your own.

For matters concerning VOIP services reviews, proceed to the profile of Spectrotel at PhoneDog. Check out the other Spectrotel profile here for more helpful information.

Make sure you look into all your options before you agree to anything, but VoIP is not only convenient, it's the wave of the future. I would venture to say that, within 20 years' time, it will be the standard. Even if you are not shopping for services, you should take a moment to learn more about VoIP, because it will be on the test!
