VoIP Software - Skype, Vonage, Lingo review
Skype : With the help of skype you can make free call through your broadband internet connection. Mind it, I have talked about broadband connection as it is the utmost necessity. Its very good for single computer system which have a dedicated internet connection. It uses peer to peer services and skype software is required at both the ends. Skype is widely popular across europe especially UK. But the question arises Why ebay has bought skype at such a high price ?
Vonage : Vonage is the most widely popular and widely used internet phone service especially across USA. The quality of sound depends upon the bandwidth of your internet connection that is why high broadband connection is advisable for Vonage use. You can make VoIP calls through your ordibary phone set as company provides a small box that is required to be connected with your broadband modem at one end and with your phone at other end. You can infact take your phone system anywhere you want and will require only a broadband connection to make a VoIP call. Not ony this you can also get additional services such as call forwarding, call conferencing, voicemail, call transfering, call waiting and many more. And still Vonage investors are losing money in stock market
Lingo : If you are frequent caller to Europe or Asia, Lingo is best VoIP phone service for you. But the complaint rate for Lingo is quite higher as compared to other softphone services. But you will love the ease and quality of using Lingo service. Other benefits includes cheap monthly rates, standard unlimited-minutes plan, 911 support, virtual numbers etc.
