It’s no secret that placing long distance calls with a traditional phone company is quite expensive. The main reason for this is that traditional phone companies still use analog wiring systems, which are costly to use and maintain. By contrast, long distance calls made with long distance VoIP (voice over internet protocol) cost much less. Since VoIP is a wholly digital service using internet connections, there are none of the problems associated with traditional analog calling services that drive prices of such services up, and so VoIP long distance ends up costing considerably less.

International calling is also much cheaper through VoIP than over traditional analog lines. Anyone who’s made an overseas call via old-fashioned telephone lines knows such a call costs quite a bit. Since VoIP uses existing internet connections, an international long distance call ends up being very inexpensive.

From a user’s perspective, this low cost is probably the greatest advantage to VoIP long distance. But affordability is far from the only advantage to using VoIP, especially for businesses. Another huge plus to VoIP in business lies in the fact that with VoIP, you can make calls from anywhere there’s an internet connection. The implications of this portability are practically endless. Just plug in your VoIP adapter and telephone into any internet connection, and you’re ready to start making calls, wherever in the world you are.
