Pay Less for Your Phone Service

pay less for your phone service - try VonageTelephone service can be expensive if you are not actively looking for the best bargains.  A lot of people these days don’t even pay for a home line.  They just use a cell phone.  If you do still like having a line at home, Vonage might be a good option for you.

We’ve been using Vonage for about 3 years and it is quite cheap compared to other phone companies in our area.  We pay on average $25 per month and that includes talking to people overseas in addition to local and long distance calling.

In order for Vonage to work you need to have a high speed Internet connection as Vonage uses Voice Over IP technology (VOIP).  The quality is good and if you move to another city or even to another country, you can keep your phone number.

The only major downside about using Vonage is that if your Internet goes down, your phone service does too.  We are fortunate to live in an area where our Internet seldom gives us issues, but if you are already have Internet connectivity troubles, I certainly wouldn’t recommend signing up for any kind of VOIP service.

There is really no need to be paying high prices for phone service nowadays as there is so much competition.  Check out your different options and don’t feel like you have to stay with your current phone service provider.  Besides, if you are considering changing phone companies, your existing phone company might offer you a better deal in order to retain your business.  There are also some free alternatives out there such as Skype.  Skype works great for connecting with friends internationally.  The bottom line is just make sure you are not getting ripped off.  You want quality service but you don’t want to have to pay an arm and a leg for it.
