Making your phone calls using the Internet is a great way to shave dollars off your monthly bills.

Many Internet service providers and telco’s now offer Internet Phone or VOIP services, that allow you to make and receive calls via the Internet, using special box that plugs into your broadband modem.

If you have an ADSL broadband connection, you will still need to have the phone line connected, however it is possible to switch across to a service that doesn’t have that nasty line rental charge.

You can also can use a service like Skype to make audio and video calls to anywhere in the world for free…you’ll just need the person on the other end to also have Skype installed. Check out VOIP plans at plus
