Cut your phone bill with VoIP

VoIP is a new way make phone calls. VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol and is the technical term for "Internet phone service." VoIP takes regular phone calls and zaps them through your high-speed Internet connection. VoIP uses regular phones, even cordless phones. Simply plug a VoIP adapter into your cable/DSL modem line and then plug your phone into the adapter. Internet Phone Service is a more generic term for using the Internet to make calls. Internet Phone calls include VoIP but also includes PC based calls. PC based calls use software and PC headsets (or speaker and mic) to initiate the call. VoIP phone service providers combine domestic US local and long distance calls for one low monthly rate with unlimited local and long distance, plus features like Caller ID, Call Waiting, Voicemail, Call Forwarding, Call Conferencing, and many more - free of charge. Free calls between users on the same service is also normally included. I reduced my monthly phone bill by 50%. You could see bigger discounts if you make a lot of long distance calls.
