Studies show traditional landlines may be going the way of the dodo as VoIP systems grow exponentially in popularity. As a matter of fact, over 200 billion corporate users are predicted to be using internet-based telephone services by 2020. So what is VoIP, and how does it work? The acronym stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol, and it’s essentially exactly what it sounds like. Instead of using the traditional copper wiring of a landline, these phone systems simply use an existing internet connection.

1. Lowered Cost
VoIP can cost anywhere from 40-80% less than traditional land lines.
2. Modern Necessity

3. Mobility & Flexibility
Need to work from home? Traveling on business? As long as you have an internet connection, you’ll be able to communicate seamlessly. Moving offices? VoIP makes transferring your phone service simple. Keep your number, forget about any cumbersome rewiring, and take your communications with you stress free.
