VoIP Phone Service Plans Finder

You’ve heard that VoIP phone service can save you money compared to many traditional landline plans. Now, if there was only a way to compare VoIP phone service plans so that it would be easy to pick the right one for your needs.

You’re in luck! Just such a service exists. It is called Affordable VoIP. It takes only a few seconds to pick the type of plans you are interested in and get a list of service providers and their offers. Go ahead and give it a try now....

Click to use the Affordable VoIP phone service plans finder.

Let’s take a closer look at the plans finder and what options you have. First notice the plan type automatically defaults to “residential.” That’s what you want for a home user or home office user. You might be tempted to select “business” if you are operating a home office. Don’t. In this case, “business” refers to businesses that have their own stand-alone business address and, likely, employees.

Also notice a “most frequently called country” option. If you tend to make a lot of calls to one particular country, say Mexico, then you’ll want to select Mexico as your called country option. Why? It’s because some VoIP service plans offer lower than usual international rates. These rates vary among countries and between providers. By selecting the country you most want to call, you’ll be able to compare provider calling rates to get the lowest cost for those international calls.

The additional information you can provide helps to narrow the selection. You can choose to view only plans that offer no activation fee, have an adapter/router included or include a digital phone. The adaptor/router, also called an ATA or Analog Telephone Adaptor, is the device that connects your current telephone to your broadband service. It often includes a place to plug-in your wireless router or computer as well as the broadband connection from your DSL or Cable modem. This is a convenience since you will most likely be sharing your broadband service with both your phone and your computer.

Once you’ve made your selections and clicked the “search” button, you’ll instantly see a list of VoIP phone service plans organized by lowest to highest cost. As an example, I selected Mexico as the country I want to call most frequently. This chart now lists a Mexico Rate to make it easy to compare plans with that rate in mind. You can also click on “Mexico Rate” and the chart will reorganize to list the plans from lowest to highest per minute calling rate to Mexico.

Why don’t you give it a try? Feel free to play around with different options and to investigate each plan more thoroughly to get all the details. Use the Affordable VoIP Service Plans Finder right now.
