Michigan residents Can Now Have VoIP
This is good news to Michigan residents. Now, you can avail VoIP
service in your residences. If you are still unaware if what I mean
by VoIP, it stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. This is a voice
messaging service like your ordinary telephone where you can have
local or long distance calls anywhere in the world. The only difference
here is that while your telephone carries your voice over the telephone
lines, in a VoIP, it is carried through the Internet.
The following are your VoIP providers in Michigan; Packet8 VoIP

Since you already know your VoIP service providers in your area,
I know you would like to know something about what is VoIP really
all about, and what will you get if you decide to dump your old
phone service in favor of this new kid in the block called VoIP?
Alright, let me explain what really VoIP is. This new kind of voice
messaging service as I have said is carried through the internet.
Unlike in a traditional telephone service that uses analog voice
delivery system, VoIP uses the digital system of voice delivery
through the internet.
Analog system which is used by the traditional long distance telephone
companies is in wave form frequencies. Examples of these are the
broadcasting radio stations that uses the AM and FM frequencies
whereby the signals are carried by radio frequencies. In the AM
or the Amplitude Modulation frequencies for example, the signals
ride on the frequency waves itself which would tend to shorten or
lengthen the radio waves depending on the sound of the radio signals.
In the FM or Frequency Modulation, the radio waves are uniform
in length but are irregularly spaced because the signals are in
the spacing of frequencies. Aside from radio broadcasting stations,
analog signals are also used in TV broadcasting, and other communication
facilities like the single side band communication and other older
forms of communication. The disadvantage of an analog signal is
that it is always open to interference by other frequencies like
static frequencies, which would cause signal disruption and disturbances.
Digital system on the other hand which is used by VoIP in sending
sound signals through the internet, utilizes numeric binary numbers
of 1 and 0 to carry the signal form. This type of signal carrier
is not open to outside interference and thus will tend to deliver
clear and uninterrupted voice signal messages.
This would then make a VoIP system superior in sound clarity over
the traditional long distance telephone system
In terms of speed connectivity, calling long distance through the
traditional long distance telephone will have no assurance of a
fast connection because of the differing telephone companies that
links together your call. On the other hand, making a call through
VoIP can make you immediately connected because of the broadband
super fast connection.
All other extra or added features offered by a traditional telephone
company are also offered by your VoIP provider. One feature that
you can get from VoIP is the video and audio conferencing. For sure,
your traditional long distance telephone company can never provide
you this kind of extra but important kind of service. This video
and audio conferencing is provided to free as an added feature of
your VoIP provider. This kind of service is much sought after because
you can confer with your love ones or friends simultaneously over
the phone while you see each other through the internet webcam.
The other good thing about a VoIP is its cost. A one minute long
distance call using your VoIP will cost only a small fraction of
what you will be paying for a one minute long distance call using
the traditional telephone line. Finally, this is the last good thing
about a VoIP. If your relative in another country is using the same
VoIP provider like yours, you can talk without limit all through
the night and day with out paying anything, because it is free.
Now, if you have a relative abroad and you are frequently calling
each other, each of you can save a lot of money by transferring
to a VoIP service with the same provider. This way, you can talk,
and even exchange gossip all through the day for FREE! Nice, right?
