The telephone, redefined by BroadVoice
Using the Internet has become a part of everyday life. We use it to learn, buy things
we need and send email. Now words and images are not the only things the Internet
can deliver. High-speed Internet connections have what it takes to send and receive
the human voice as quickly, clearly and simply as your traditional telephone. This
exciting technology is called VoIP.
VOIP, or Voice Over IP (pronounced 'voyp'), is a
new technology that lets you make phone calls over the Internet.
When you make a VoIP phone call, you use a normal touch-tone telephone and dial
the normal phone number just as you would any other time. The people on the other
end can't tell that whether you are calling from a traditional telephone or a VoIP
phone. The main difference is that the phone call travels over the Internet rather
than through the local phone company's wires.
All you need is a Broadband Internet connection, either DSL or cable, a phone adapter,
and a ordinary touch-tone telephone. You do not even need a computer.
VoIP technology changes everything
Now calls overseas become cheaper than what you used to pay for local calls.
What if you know lots of people in California but live in Boston? Why pay long-distance
charges? Ask BroadVoice for a California number, so calls between you and your contacts
in California are local. You will save money, and so will they.

BroadVoice makes it simple to take advantage of VoIP
We provide you with a telephone adapter that connects your broadband modem
or router to your existing phone. After you sign up for a BroadVoice monthly service
plan, your phone will continue to work the same as always. Call anyone you want,
any number in the world, and your VoIP calls will travel through your modem instead.
