The back and forth discussions about the benefits of VoIP surprisingly isn’t much of a debate at all.
Most of the conversation about VoIP centers on the good and rarely the bad, although the latter has some credence with the masses and those who aren’t ready to sing the praises of having phone service transported over the internet.
Think about such services as Viber and Skype, the two most recognizable ones, and all the positives that come out of essentially streaming a phone call over the wonder that is the world wide web.
It’s not hard to look past one key element of VoIP and realize that the cost alone is enough to will this type of service well past naysayers who don’t like the idea of internet phone service.
The pay as you go option is very inexpensive but they also offer monthly fees that are bundled nicely and allow for unlimited calls. This is especially important to business owners, small ones specifically, who like the idea of the clarity and reliability of those types of calls and a price that isn’t going to destroy any budget.
When you talk reliability, however, you have to know that those not so hyped on VoIP are going to argue that once the internet goes out, so does your phone service. That also rings true for those who have internet service but not the type that really works well with internet phone calling.
The long and the short is your internet service needs to be reliable or VoIP or the major drawback will be become a serious reality.
Beyond reliability and an internet that short changes the process, VoIP also sports some serious power as far as connectivity and just how portable and positive the experience can be. You can use VoIP anywhere and you can reach anyone no matter where you are in relationship to them, and the price point doesn’t change one bit.
Of course, much like the aforementioned Skype and Viber, you have the option of doing video calls, another plus for businesses but also the grandparents who don’t live nearby or a son or daughter that is living thousands of miles away and wants to stay in touch with the masses.
You’d be hard pressed not to relish and wrap your arms around VoIP and squeeze in acceptance of just how versatile the service is, rather than view it from the minority side of the fence as a questionable and vexing way to make calls.
