The key element in VoIP is the price. With some home phone providers looking at driving people more towards andlsquo;packages’ rather than basic land line systems by putting the price of a phone call up, VoIP providers are keeping the cost of PC to PC or PC to mobile phone calls down. It isn’t free, as the caller is still charged for outgoing calls, but if you hunt down a broadband provider that includes line rental in the cost of their package, the saving can be considerable. VoIP only needs a relatively high speed Internet connection to carry VoIP calls, reasonably up to date hardware and a like-for-like system at the other end. VoIP providers typically offer capped or unlimited call plans, meaning that you can make as many cheap phone calls as you like for a set monthly charge. It’s the modern version of the old-fashioned phone card.
