Save Money and Keep Your Current Number With Internet Home Phone Service

As monthly phone bills continue to rise and reliability declines, traditional phone service customers are searching for options. Internet home phone service might just be the ticket. With Ooma, you get free calling, just pay applicable taxes and fees.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that allows you to place phone calls through an internet connection, rather than through the twisted-pair copper-wire phone lines that have been around for nearly 150 years. With VoIP, you can place calls to anyone, anywhere, just like you would with a traditional home phone.

Here are answers to a few common questions about switching to VoIP.

Is VoIP a good landline alternative?
For many people, VoIP is an excellent alternative to a landline phone service. It’s inexpensive, comes with low-cost international calling plans, and includes a range of valuable features like advanced call blocking and the convenience of making and receiving calls via your home number using your mobile devices and computer.

Can I keep my home phone number?
Absolutely. Your home phone number can be transferred from your landline phone service to a residential VoIP system.

Can I use my old landline phone with VoIP?
Yes, VoIP systems include a base station that plugs into your home internet router, so you can connect VoIP to a landline phone to the base station. If you plan on using your old home phone unit, simply plug it into the base station to begin making and receiving calls.

Do I need extra equipment to switch to VoIP service?
Most residential VoIP providers allow you to continue using your old home phones, so the only equipment you need is a base station to connect to your internet.

Can I call internationally?
Yes, low-cost international calling is one of the biggest benefits of switching to a VoIP service. If you have friends and family living abroad, connecting with your loved ones will be easier than ever.

Is VoIP secure?
Both landline and VoIP phone services are susceptible to hacking, but the best VoIP service providers have security protocols in place to secure VoIP. Ooma uses the same encryption technology that governments use to protect classified data.
