Are you planning to opt for the new technology called Voice over Internet Protocol (Voice over IP, or VoIP) to cut down on your telephone bill? VoIP is indeed the ultimate solution for both individuals and businesses that need to make a large number of long distance or overseas calls. But when it comes to pick the right VoIP provider, it becomes a tough task. Why? The market is flooded with a number of service providers and it makes tougher to select the one that meets the requirements perfectly.

Before talking on how to select the right VoIP provider, let’s have a look at this latest technology. This is also a way of communicating over the telephone but here the internet is used to carry the calls. When it comes to select a VoIP provider you need to keep certain things in mind. This will not only save you time but also your hard earned money in the long run.

The first thing that you need to bring into consideration is monthly costs of the service. It is true that VoIP service is ten times more economical as compared to traditional landline service. You will find some service providers that offer you excitingly low costing calling packages. Do some research beforehand and select the service provider that offer you service at the lowest price without compromising on the quality of service.

Next important thing is the features of VoIP. All VoIP service providers offer some free services to its subscribers. Some common VoIP features include call blocking, Call waiting, 3 Way calling, etc. You need to check whether your service provider is offering these facilities or not. If they are charging extra for these services, stay away from that provider.

The VoIP provider must offer you Number portability feature. This useful feature allows the users to switch or upgrade from a traditional landline service to a VoIP service without changing the number. All VoIP providers might not offer you this facility. So, it is always recommended to verify before opting for their services.

You should know a very important thing that most of the renowned VoIP service providers offer packages with a 14-30 days money-back guarantee. Is your selected VoIP service provider also offering a money-back guarantee? If they are not, then probably they are not certified VoIP service provider and you might also not get a reliable service.

Do you make a lot of international calls? Since International Rates vary by provider, it is strongly recommended to do a lot of research before taking the final call. A number of service providers are available in the market where unlimited calling facilities to certain countries are offered. Go through the plans of the service provider and ensure whether the company is offering such services or not.

Keep these useful tips in mind when selecting a VoIP service provider for your need.
