Switching to BroadVoice VOIP

Over the Christmas holidays, I took a serious look at the telephone charges we've been incurring (particularly for calls back to our family in the UK) and I decided to switch the VOIP.

We've settled on the Unlimited World Plan from BroadVoice - basically giving us unlimited calls to USA, Canada and Western Europe plus an additional phone number in the UK for our family to call us on (at UK phone call rates rather than international rates) and all for less than 22 USD plus tax per month!

Once the phone adaptor arrived, it was less than a 5 minute job to plug in everything and make the first phone call - and the majority of that time was actually spent hunting for an additional power strip!

Looking at our recent land line bills, the new VOIP service should represent a significant saving each month, plus allow us more freedom to call our family in the UK more frequently, plus make it considerably easier and cheaper for family and friends in the UK to call us (once they get over the psychological hurdle of dialing a UK number to talk to us in the USA!)

VOIP definitely looks like the future of long distance telephony, and so far I have nothing but praise for the service from BroadVoice.
