The Top 3 Residential VoIP Providers for 2014, According to Voxilla.com

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- When thinking about VoIP, many people believe that it is a technology that is only useful for businesses. But nothing could be further from the truth. Even though a large number of businesses have replaced their entire phone systems with a VoIP solution, there are now a growing number of consumers that use VoIP for their home telephony needs. The growing demand among home consumers has led to numerous residential VoIP providers appearing.

This increased competition among residential VoIP providers is highly beneficial for consumers. Service providers have lowered their costs and included various interesting features in their services in an effort to attract as many customers as they can.

What is Residential VoIP and How Does it Work?

The term VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It is a type of phone service that uses the Internet to allow you to make phone calls. You can make and receive calls to and from other VoIP subscribers, but you can also make and receive calls from other types of phones as well. Therefore, residential VoIP works just like a normal landline would.

The main advantage of using VoIP in your home is that you will get the same experience than you would from a landline, but at a much lower cost. A residential VoIP line is much cheaper than a standard phone service when it comes to monthly fees. Many providers include nationwide long distance in their packages, in addition to very low rates to many international destinations. As such, you will be able to save on your long distance calls as well.

A VoIP line can be used as your main home phone, or as a secondary line, which can be useful if you run a home business. You can also use a VoIP app on your smartphone that will allow you to make calls without using up any of your wireless minutes.

With a residential VoIP service, you can use various types of hardware and software to make calls. You can use a "softphone" application that lets you make calls from your computer or smartphone. If you want to use a physical phone, you have two options: you can either buy a special VoIP phone, or you can use an inexpensive adapter that will let you use your residential VoIP service with any standard telephone.
