Why VoIP Telephony Is Truly Where It’s At

Do you still have a home phone? There are many people who utilize their smartphones so often that they don’t see the need for home phones. In 2022, we’re quite used to digital technology that requires no wires. Between our phones, tablets and laptops, the devices the vast majority of us use each day are wireless.

Even many of those who so still use home phones have done away with landlines. The internet is where it’s at for just about everything. Think about it. How often do you watch cable television? These days, the majority of our favourite shows and movies are streamed via such platforms as Netflix, Disney + and Amazon Prime Video. In other words, nearly everything we watch is given to us through the internet. Why should our phone calls be any different?

VoIP is where it’s at!

At MeloTel, we proudly offer VoIP-based Commercial Phone Services. For the past 13 years, our clients have all come to realize that making the switch from landlines to cloud-hosted telephony affords them many unique benefits. Let’s start with the one that most people want to talk about first. VoIP saves you money!

Landline phone bills are traditionally pricey. This is especially true when long distance calls are made. If we’re being frank, there is simply no reason for anyone to pay for a long distance call in today’s world. The internet enables us to connect with people all over the world without incurring the outrageous charges that long distance calls have given us in the past. With our phone services, you get unlimited calling to over 22 countries!

VoIP lets you go wherever you want!

Unlike landline phones, VoIP telephony does not confine you to any specific space. Your home phone, for example, is usually just that. It’s the phone you use at home. With VoIP, all you need is an internet connection. That means that no matter where you are in the world, you can use the same phone number to make and take your phone calls.

In addition, you can pretty much use any device you like to make and take those calls. You can use your mobile phone, laptop, tablet or even desktop computer. The choice will always be yours! Traditionally, your phone calls require devices that are plugged into the wall. That doesn’t give you much flexibility to be wherever you need to be!

VoIP telephony comes with a ton of features!

Traditional landline telephone connections often offer you such staples as caller ID and call waiting. However, with our cloud-hosted telephone services, you get so much more! Automatically included are such features as conference calling, voicemail to your email, incoming call routing, Click 2 Call, custom hold music, after hours routing, call recording and out of office options.
