Compared to the traditional, still widely used standard telephone network (public switched telephone network (PSTN)), one option for voice-based telephony comes in the form of VoIP, in which calls are routed over the Internet - which comes with many advantages. Aside from the added flexibility, greater functionality, easier management, and complete scalability, VoIP holds over its traditional counterpart, the biggest advantage of a VoIP solution, when compared to PSTN, is the enormous amount of savings in costs.
To begin, VoIP to VoIP calls are completely free; and calls made to national and international landline or mobile networks are made at substantially discounted rates which, depending on the provider, usually translate into a savings amount of over 80% in comparison.
One advantage, as previously mentioned, is full flexibility. For example, using your phone over the web (provided you have Internet access) allows you to dial and connect to the same phone numbers as you could before, with unrestricted global reach. You can enjoy the benefits of VoIP telephony by using either VoIP software on your PC (softphone), a VoIP standalone phone (hardphone) or a special VoIP adapter for your analogue phone.
