Do you still use a VCR to watch movies? We’re guessing your answer is a clear “of course not” coupled with a chuckle or two. We’re also willing to wager a bet that you don’t even use a DVD or Blu-ray player anymore. With video on demand platforms like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and Disney Plus all the rage these days, video cassette and disc players are widely considered things of the past.
Do you still use a landline telephone to make and take calls? We’re guessing your answer may still be “yes”. However, allow us to inform you that the landline telephone is going the way of the VCR. Today – just like with movie watching – the internet is the way to go. VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is slowly, but surely taking over as the top choice method of communicating with others.
Let’s take a look at some of the factors that make VoIP a clear upgrade from landlines.
Do you like saving money? It’s a silly question, right? Well then, making the transition from landline phones to VoIP phones is guaranteed to keep more money in your pockets. Remember that, with VoIP, phone calls take place over the internet. That means long distance charges disappear. Calling someone in another country is no different than emailing that person – cost-wise. With MeloTel’s Commercial Phone Services, you get unlimited calling to more than 22 countries!
With VoIP, you are no longer tied down to a specific phone in a specific location. You can connect to your extension using any device you wish and from any location you choose. Again, you’re using the internet. As long as you have a connection to the worldwide web and a device that enables you to make and take calls, you’re all set.
VoIP telephony allows business owners to conduct business over the phone anywhere they wish. Your office is no different than your bedroom as far as your cloud-hosted telephone service is concerned. Your smartphone is no different than your traditional phone either.
You may be under the assumption that VoIP phones don’t offer crystal clear calling. Let us put those assumptions to rest. VoIP, in fact, generally provides sound that is clearer than analog phone lines. This, of course, depends on your internet connection. As long as you have a strong connection to the web, you will enjoy clear and consistent sound quality on all phone calls.
Don’t assume VoIP phone calls are good for audio alone. The technology allows you to host video calls and transmit multimedia messages as well. MeloTel’s Commercial Phone Services come with a myriad of features that turn your phone use into a multi-faceted communication experience.
One of our favourites is Voicemail to your Email. With our VoIP-based services, any voicemail you receive will be sent to your email inbox as an mp3 file. It virtually makes it impossible to ever miss an important message again!
