Phone & VoIP

VOIP is an acronym that means, "Voice Over Internet Protocol," and many people also refer to it as "Digital Phone" or "Digital Voice." While mobile phones are everywhere, there are still plenty of reasons to have a landline phone for many families.

VOIP has had issues in recent years, but it continues to improve, and these articles will help you decide if VOIP is right for you.
