A growing alternative to telephone service popularity in recent years is the Voice Over Internet Protocol service, more known as VOIP. It is a method of making and receiving telephone calls over the Internet. Most people think of VoIP as an alternative to local phone companies. An IP address is your Internet Protocol address. IP addresses are the way computers and devices communicate with each other on the Internet.

Most major VoIP providers even allow you to use a standard telephone, and you can call the available phone with a telephone connected to the fixed public telephone system. You can get more information about VoIP phone systems in Toronto and Vaughan via Wired For The Future.

The use of a VoIP phone system offers many advantages:

The most important of which is the cost efficiency of this service, which makes it cheaper than conventional analog telephone services.

VoIP maintenance costs are lower than traditional telephone systems and inexpensive to install because they use an existing broadband connection. This means no additional phone lines need to be installed. VoIP phones are similar to telephones in appearance and usability.

Since VoIP is not geo-based, this way you can create a virtual number by assigning an area code of your choice even if your business is not physically located in the area – the added benefit is that your virtual number is portable so you can take it with you wherever you go, even if you decide to move offices.
