VoIP Companies in the Philippines
VoIP or Voice over Internet Protocol is a way of giving telephone
users particularly those who are calling long distance most of the
time, the chance of paying just a little amount of money for their
The savings that you can get from using VoIP instead of long
distance telephone are so great that if you constantly call abroad
like those families of Philippine Overseas workers, you can save
a lot of money from long distance calls alone. Aside from paying
a very little amount for your long distance calls, the quality and
the speed of connection is greatly superior to the traditional long
distance telephone calls.
Now if the VoIP provider here in the Philippines is the same VoIP
provider that you will be calling abroad, you can expect to have
a free call with whoever you will be calling abroad. So, aside from
a very low cost long distance call, you still have the chance of
having a free long distance. This is just one advantage of using
VoIP signals sent through the internet are in digital forms so
you can expect that the quality of your communication even it is
a long distance call will be much clearer. Likewise, the connection
of your call is immediate, because of broadband connectivity speed.
Because of the many Filipinos working abroad, many investors has
targeted the Philippines as one of the many countries that can immensely
profit from the new technology from the internet. The following
are now the VoIP that Filipinos can have as providers of VoIP service.
The Ezezcall Company – This Company in the true sense, is
not a total VoIP communication system. It can only process out going
calls but you cannot have in coming calls, just some sort of an
international pay phone that uses the internet to your outward calls.
They charge your call at 0.03 cents a minute. There is no need to
change your existing phone number because with Ezezcall, you can
only call to your friends outside of the Philippines but they can
never call you through Ezezcall.
Sky Internet VoIP – this company I would like to say is the
real VoIP provider. Their service can make you call your friends
in other countries and you can also received calls from them. I
could have subscribed to this company, but I was surprised by their
guidelines. Applicants should have a separate broadband connection
for their VoIP system, which means a dedicated broadband connection
for VoIP system alone? Well, if I have to take another broadband
subscription from what I already have for my internet use, then
maybe, I just have to make do with what I have.
Because instead of having some savings because of VoIP, I now have
to have Another broadband dedicated internet connection which is
by no means cheap. With one broadband connection for the internet
and VoIP, I can manage. But with two broadband subscription, one
for the internet and the other for VoIP, sorry Sky Internet VoIP,
I surely cannot afford them. Hey, I think with VoIP we can save
– what the heck is this dedicated broadband line for?
Takalam - This VoIP Company for a particular fixed monthly rate
will offer 200 hours of unlimited calls to the U.S. and Canada.
After the 200 hours, calls will be charged 0.08 cents per minute.
All features of long distance telephone calls are offered by the
It will indeed be far better if the Philippines can have more
voIP provider so that the rates in terms of installation cost can
be lowered and also the rates in terms of domestic calls. It has
been noted in studies made that the Philippines needs to have more
VoIP provider considering the large number of foreign workers
the country has working in different countries abroad. If these
area of concerns can be addressed to by the government, a lot of
Overseas Filipino worker families will benefit from the very low
rates VoIP long distance calls offers.
Competition among many VoIP providers will benefit the family of
Filipinos working overseas. Aside from that, the local telephone
industry who had been the beneficiary of these huge volume of long
distance calls between families and their love ones working in other
countries abroad for a very long time already, will be forced to
come to their senses and adjust their high long distance rates if
they want to survive the competition brought to them by VoIP providers.
