Since it’s development in the late 1800s the telephone has become a driving force in our everyday lives. Today we have a huge choice in our telephony service and with many people owning more than one phone number its not surprising that telephony is a subject with ever increasing complexity. It’s also a pretty common fact of life that, in a subject clouded by confusing acronyms and seemingly identical offerings, the deciding factor is often the price. For both users like yourself and I, as well as the big service providers like BT, NTL, Vodafone and so forth the cheapest option in many cases is VoIP.
I’m not sure where I found this or under what understanding I made a copy of it but it was on my old website for quite some time. So I’m going to keep it until I’m asked to remove it.
