Modern technology has made a huge difference in many industries. Communications, for instance, have been through a real revolution with the discovery of VOIP. Voice Over IP is a protocol that enables voice data transfer over the internet, thus making it possible to have phone calls via a computer connected to the Internet.
The biggest advantage of this technology is its price. Once you have the equipment, you can talk with people from all over the world without having to pay anything. Long distance calls were once crazy expensive, so people had to resume their conversations to the basic transfer of information. With VOIP, we can talk for hours with our overseas friends and business partners, without having to pay a huge price. It is such a huge competitive edge that many businesses have chosen to make the switch from their traditional phones to the VOIP technology. They only pay for their broadband Internet connection, without any surcharge for the phone calls their employees make.
There are lots of applications that allow computer telephony, many of them being free of charge and readily available. They are easy to install and to use. Additionally, they don’t require any maintenance, so they are very convenient for all businesses and individuals who seek to cut their monthly costs. Telephony is something we don’t need to pay for anymore. Thanks to the latest discoveries in this industry, we can use our computers, tablets and smartphones to communicate via Skye, Viber, Whatsapp and other similar apps that enable people keep in touch via voice calls, text messages or images. All these made it possible to keep in touch with our beloved ones even if they are very far away, in other countries or even on other continents. Everything is free once you’ve got a good and reliable internet connection to support your voice calls. Broadband is the technology that opened a new world, a world in which there are no more geographical barriers between us, the world in which we can share our thoughts and ideas with thousands of people via web conferences and online streaming television channels. There are internet telephony applications such as NetMeeting and CoolTalk that come by default with the most popular web browsers. All you need to do in order to use them is to connect your computer to the World Wide Web and start talking.
