VoIP Phone Service in Middlebury, VT

Voice over Internet Protocol, also known as VoIP, has been a major player in the Middlebury communications industry since 2004. It's hard to imagine that less than a decade ago the notion of using anything other than a phone to make a call was novel. Today, VoIP phone services have become commonplace on the consumer market, giving huge numbers of people the opportunity to carry out conversations all over the world.

How Does Middlebury VoIP Phone Service Work?

VoIP is a group of technologies that deliver voice communications using the internet. In order to do this, the analog voice signal must be digitized, encoded and transmitted as Internet Protocol packets which is then received, decoded and converted to the correct signal with respect to the call's final destination.

VoIP calls in Middlebury are placed using either a computer, VoIP phone or conventional telephone that is connected to an adapter. With Middlebury, VT VoIP phone service calls can be made to either a telephone or another computer, giving you more flexibility in the way you communicate with family, friends and work associates.

How VoIP Compares to Other Phone Services in Middlebury, VT

There are several similarities and differences between Middlebury VoIP and traditional phone services.

Similarities

Just like traditional phone service, VoIP customers in Middlebury can make local, long distance as well as international calls. Calls can be made to any phone number whether it's a landline or a mobile phone.

VoIP phone calls also provide good sound quality and calls are received the same way you would receive a traditional phone call if you're using a VoIP phone or regular phone that's connected to an adapter.  The people you're calling will not be able to differentiate a traditional call from a VoIP call.

Middlebury VoIP providers offer customers the same great calling features as traditional phone companies and they have a number of calling plans as well.

Differences

Unlike traditional phone services in Middlebury, you'll need an internet connection to make VoIP phone calls. For this reason you may not be able to place calls if your power goes out. Before signing up for service ask the provider if they have backup power or another solution in the event that your power goes out.

VoIP calls are delivered over a packet switched network and don't require any phone lines, whereas traditional phone services a delivered over the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and require phone lines so as to receive service. So  traditional phone service is limited to your residence while VoIP service can be portal and utilized from any place where you have an internet connection.

However, this portability has one drawback that isn't a problem with traditional phone service. Emergency 911 calls made with a traditional phone service goes to a Public Safety Answering Point where the location and phone number can automatically and easily be identified. If you're using a VoIP phone service this information might not be automatically transmitted to 911 operators and when they do the location will be where the Middlebury VoIP phone service is registered, not where the caller is at that exact time.

How to Find Top Middlebury VoIP Phone Service Providers

Today there are a number of Middlebury VoIP providers to select from that offer both residential and business phone services. As mentioned above, each provider offers their own unique services, plans and prices. Because VoIP phone service doesn't require phone lines you aren't limited to providers that are strictly in your area.

Make sure to inquire about the equipment necessary for service, their policy for handling 911 calls and power outages, what calling areas are a part of their plans and if you'll have any installation fees.

Vonage was one of the first to provide VoIP phone services and to this day remains a well known choice among consumers. Although their headquarters are in the U.S. they provide service worldwide for both businesses and residences.

Other top Middlebury VoIP providers include: AT&T, Nextiva, RingCentral, Vocalocity and 8x8, Inc.
