VoIP services add value to broadband internet packages

Saturday, September 13th 2008

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) or broadband telephony has been increasingly becoming a part of broadband package as it offers cheaper option to the broadband customers for making calls to international destinations. According to the thinkbroadband.com, the use of VoIP telephony will undergo a significant up curve in the future.

Traditional phone services often prove to be much expensive for the heavy phone users, in particular, those who regularly make international calls. While VoIP allows the internet users to make the PC to PC calls free, some providers offer VoIP services to make calls to landlines and mobile numbers at any destination in the globe at cheaper call rates.

Andrew Ferguson, the broadband reviewer at thinkbroadband says:
"VoIP still has some way to go to match the reliability of the traditional telephone network, but the attraction is low cost of calls with people on the same VoIP network often able to call each other for free."

Broadband internet services often include value added services like VoIP, data storage and email. It should be noted that these value added services played an important role in getting more revenue for the internet providers. For instance, according to the report from Point Topic, the broadband providers worldwide offer value added services worth (£14.6 billion a year to their customers. The impressive year-on-year growth in these services is indicated by 62 % growth in revenues during 2006-2007.
