*VOIP for superior
communications technology, not just cheap phone service.
Sometimes as sellers and resellers of voip services, we get
caught up in telling consumers about saving money on their phone
services with voip, but we should remember there are a lot of
other benefits to using this superior new voip technology for
communication services. Read more on this topic from Telephony
*VOIP and WiFi phones
The newest frontier area of VOIP appears to be determining
how it will go mobile. Some cellular companies are
experimenting with dual-band cellular/wifi phones that will work
in wifi hotspots part of the time, and use cellular service when
wifi is not available (Sprint/Nextel is working on a solution;
T-mobile is experimenting with the service in only the Seattle
market—see article link below.) Other companies are focusing on
hardware devices to convert existing cell phones to be wifi-compatible,
and vice versa.
It’s a wide-open area right
now, as new technologies will compete to try to give the
consumer the most practical, easiest-to-use solution.
The most promising thing
about the whole idea of voip going mobile is that it can help
make VOIP services something that consumer are more likely to
think of as just another phone service, and not as a
scary-new-hi-tech adventure to be avoided. See some of the
discussions about hopes and concerns about mobile wi-fi voip in
