Long Distance Phone Charges May Be a Thing of the Past
If you’re constantly on the phone with people who live out of town and you’re paying for long distance service, the long distance charges you incur can really begin to add up. Believe it or not, it’s not uncommon for people with out-of-town friends and family to pay hundreds of dollars each month in long distance charges. The thing is, you don’t have to pay for long distance charges. Nowadays there are a number of options available to you that can save you literally hundreds of dollars each month on your long distance phone calls.
One of the most popular ways to avoid long distance phone charges is to take advantage of one of the many VOIP phone services. VOIP stands for voice over IP and involves making phone calls via your IP router. For one low monthly fee, you can have all of your phone service included, saving you literally hundreds on your long distance service.
Most phone companies are now offering a service that includes long distance calling in your regular phone service. For one low monthly fee, you can have your local calling, long distance calling and services such as voice mail and caller ID all included. This means that beyond the small additional monthly fee, you don’t have to pay a penny extra for your long distance calls. But they won’t necessarily tell you about this option — so call and ask to see if it saves you money.
