    He never knows !

    Within the next year -- I'm sure all of you will hear more and more about this exciting new technology -- available to consumers right now, today. The reason I'm sure you will hear about it is because your current telephone company will be the one screaming most loudly about it. What is VOIP?  Simply - it's a little box connected to your broadband internet router on your end and a regular every day telephone on the other.  The little VOIP box allows your regular telephone to use the internet for connectivity. The functional technology for VOIP was developed by Motorola, Cisco and a number of other well-known leading edge electronic development and manufacturing firms.

    The box is assigned a regular 10 digit telephone number - which could even be the same one you have now. When someone calls your telephone number - guess what, your telephone rings. Your computer, its microphone or speakers are not involved! Your computer need not be on, that was very early internet telephony of several years ago.  When you want to make an outgoing call - you simply pick-up your regular telephone, [connected to the VOIP box with a standard RJ-11 modular cord]  - you wait a second for a normal dialtone and make your call. Users on either end of the service hear a normal quality conversation and don't even know that the internet is involved in the connection.  The VOIP service can serve multiple phones and can travel over standard currently existing telephone wiring in your house. Common devices such as local answering machines and cordless phones work normally. I use VIOP for several lines on a home office telephone system.  Of course, the better phones you have the better VOIP sounds to everyone concerned.

    Current offers from the most prominent supplier of VOIP [the one I chose] feature a choice of area codes for your calling city {in most cases} -- or an area code as if in any other city in the US or Canada.  The necessary equipment including the VOIP interface box and all necessary cables and a complete set of instructions backed by free telephone support to get you successfully connected is included with all plans. Each VOIP box can support two separate phone numbers. You even get a free voicemail account [for missed or long-ringing calls]. Another feature is free email notification when a voicemail is received - plus free duplicate delivery of your received voicemails by email attachment if you set that option.

    Additionally - name and number Caller ID is included at no extra charge. You will have access to a control panel [using your normal browser on the internet] to set all options as well as to review all of your incoming and outgoing calls - and your up to the minute billing status for the current month..  IF you call another VOIP user on the system - neither of you will be billed - such calls are totally free.  Best of all ... there is no contract required.  You are billed for the package you choose on a month-to-month basis.  You can upgrade [or downgrade] your account at any time.  There is no penalty for change - because there is no contract involved.

    There is a one-time activation fee of about $30 - and a one-time shipping and handling fee of about $10. After that - your new residential phone service will cost as little as $17 per month for 500 minutes of outgoing calls to anywhere in the US or Canada - or no more than about $30 a month for unlimited calling to the US or Canada - no long distance differential is applied - except on international calls - and the rates are very reasonable. Incoming calls are not billed. Business accounts are available with unlimited calling minutes, a free fax number and are currently priced at about $50 - which is much less than land-line rates. You can add a toll-free incoming number to any account for about $5 a month.  Over minute charges are currently less than 5 cents per minute. Folks -- in contrast to the $42 per month I'm paying for a basic plain old residential telephone line - plus long distance calls at 9 cents per minute -- can you see WHY your phone company is concerned and very nervous about VOIP ?. I certainly can. VOIP represents serious competition for their sources of revenue.

    Drop me an email from the link below - I'll send you more details and arrange a nice demonstration using my new VOIP service. PS - understanding and working with all of this technical stuff is what I do for a living. I think I can make it easy enough for you to understand what a great deal VOIP is.
