Last year, AT & T's announcement that they would now enable VoIP calls over the 3G network is BIP news for the VoIP industry. Better late than ever, Apple finally began to approve VoIP applications for iPhone. The VoIP industry has generally shown strong growth in recent years, but growth was typically driven by consumers switching from analogue PSTN lines to VoIP for their home or business. This growth has increased as broadband internet service (the requirement of VoIP) is becoming more widespread.
Let's face it … we all call calls in two ways. We use our ground service or use our mobile phone. Since most wireless mobile carriers have been associated to enable (as in block) VoIP traffic within data transmission networks, the usability of VoIP is limited to the mobile phone when it provides access to the Wi-Fi connection. This is okay if you are at home or in the office, but it doesn't work when you start and if you don't stop at Starbucks or McDonalds. For this reason, VoIP on your mobile phone is difficult to sell, more reserved for technicians than the mainstream.
Now, with the support of VoIP over 3G, VoIP for mobile phones becomes much more attractive as you can do VoIP calls anywhere, AT & T has 3G while still using VoIP for Wi-Fi via 3G without areas. While VoIP is unlikely to work on AT & Ts 2G Edge networks due to speed and delay, 3G coverage areas still include a large number of potential VoIP clients. One thing to keep in mind is that AT & T is upgrading its wireless networks one day with 4G LTE technology, which essentially provides Wi-Fi for cities. With the availability of 4G devices, the ability to use VoIP reliably makes it more attractive in many places.
Consider a single user using a heavy iPhone. Suppose the Nationwide Unlimited plan is called $ 69.99 / mth per minute. If they had a low-cost VoIP plan for unlimited minutes, I could reduce this to Nationwide 450, $ 39.99 per m While this means saving $ 30 a month, you need to register with a VoIP provider that will allow you to use VoIP on your phone. Unlimited VoIP plans, where they call anywhere in the United States and Canada, are less than $ 19.95 per month. Of course, if a user has to receive a VoIP plan for $ 19.95, he only saves $ 10 a month, but this scenario is a bare bone basic model, and it will only be better here.
If you are on the road or you are calling to Canada or another international destination, the cost savings and usefulness of mobile phones will only be better. Also, if you are traveling to international destinations, you no longer have to worry about how it will work on your mobile phone in other countries. In the past, you should have opened an open SIM card with GSM functionality from a mobile operator in another country. With VoIP you only need one Wi-Fi connection and you will be called home without any additional cost.
Returning to a heavy user example with an unlimited plan, additional cost savings can be achieved in other areas. First of all, most VoIP plans allow unlimited calls to Canada. Adding Canada to the AT&T cellular plan is very expensive, depending on how many minutes you want. If you just add the ability to call Canada with AT & Ts, you can add $ 20- $ 60 / mth to your account. Once you have a VoIP plan, you will be able to use your mobile phone for low international VoIP calls. If you are already using a landline phone to make VoIP for international calls, you have the chance to transfer this technology to your iPhone.
Many mobile phone users have never considered using VoIP instead of wireless minutes. Others believed, but because of their limited utility, they were forced to use Wi-Fi. AT & T has opened the 3G network for VoIP traffic, now a great opportunity to think about using VoIP whenever possible. With a good VoIP application on the iPhone and a good VoIP service provider, you might be pleasantly surprised by the sound quality while saving money and adding functionality to your smartphone.
The following article deals with the coordination of the ground service with mobile services. The best way to do this is to use a home or office IP-PBX server. With low-cost deployment of this technology, you can save a lot of money on managing family plans and in business situations where the company pays all or part of the wireless bill for every employee. Although the popularity of "wireless" management is growing, as more and more unlimited plans have arrived on the Internet, converging landlines and cellular networks may change. Stay tuned …
