Switch and Combine Home Phone Services to Save Money

Technology changes so quickly it''s hard to keep track. These days, most people have a cell phone, a home phone, a computer and many have a fax machine, too. Phone companies offer service in "bundles" and with all the different services you pay for, it''s a good time to find out what switching could be worth to you.

For instance, if you have a dial up connection (DSL) for your computer and a basic land line for your phone, you''re probably paying about $90.00 per month. This includes basic services like long distance, call waiting, voice mail and caller ID. If you need other services like call forwarding, 3-way calling, repeat dial back, or frequently make international calls, the bill gets much higher.

You can save an average of $300 per year by combining services. Switch to high-speed Internet connection (broadband) and add your home phone service to it with Vonage Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

VoIP is a great new way to make and receive phone calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a standard phone line. It converts your phone calls into data that zips through your high-speed Internet connection just like e-mail.

Once you''ve tried broadband service, you''ll never go back. It provides a near-instantaneous response when you''re surfing the ''net. It saves time when you''re using online services -- banking and finance, shopping, looking for movie times, or even just opening emailed pictures -- because the connection can carry so much data, so much faster.

If you already have a broadband connection, connecting your phone service to it just makes sense.

Vonage is an all-inclusive phone service that gives you unlimited local and long distance calling anywhere in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. And now calls to select European countries are free with the Unlimited plans. You can keep your current phone number, there''s no annual contract, and in many cases, calls will sound better than your basic phone connection.

Connect your new adapter to your home phone and you''re set. The phone jack is becoming obsolete. Simply connect the small Vonage phone adapter to the broadband cable modem.

Start saving on unlimited local and long distance calling, plus many included features you won''t find with any other service. Sign up for the Vonage Premium Unlimited plan at $24.99 per month now and get the first month free and a free adapter.
