In the past few years, there has been a consensus amongst telecom consumers that due to the monopoly of conventional telephone services in the communication sector they are being ripped off every month. The worst part of this allegation on telephone companies is that the situation is getting worst day by day. Consumers have been complaining of being overcharged and have accused the telephone companies of charging them more every month due to somehiddenservice charges that they have never ever heard of.

It is the time that the consumers say goodbye to conventional means of communication and adopt the state of the art technology to stay in touch with their colleagues and loved ones and that too at a far much lower cost than any other telephone service present in the country. The answer to all the aforementioned problems is Voice over Internet Protocol services. The thing that makes this answer interesting is that you get an alternate means of communication at an extremely low rate along with numerous value added services for free.

There is numerous Voice over Internet Protocol service providers in the market, some of them do not even charge a fee for the usage. Such VoIP services are available online; Skype, MSN Live Messenger, and Yahoo Messenger are examples of VoIP integrated software. These softwares allow you to make voice and video calls to other respective VoIP software users who are online.

These services are absolutely free.

The ones which are not free, such as Vonage or Axvoice, they are still far cheaper and far more efficient than conventional telephone services. Vonage packages start from $9.99 + tax. This is the basic package that Vonage offers; currently, consumers report that with just looking dialing their bills come up to $60 to $70 per month, the best package that Vonage has, and the one which is widely demanded in the market is Vonage World.
