This article will explain how Vonage voice over IP phone service works and discuss the pros and cons so you can decide if Vonage is right for you.

Vonage voice over IP is the most popular provider of internet based phone service. It allows you to make both local and long distance calls over your existing high-speed internet connection. This means you can save a substantial amount of money by canceling service with your current phone service and switching to Vonage.

How much money can I save?

A typical household can expect to save around 50% off their current phone bill by switching to Vonage voice over IP. The most popular package is $24.99 per month for unlimited local and long distance calls, and popular services such as voicemail, caller ID and call waiting are included.

This is an obvious advantage over traditional phone service providers who charge extra for long distance calls and other options.

Will I need to change my phone number?

In most cases, no. You can usually keep your old number if you wish, though it may take a little bit longer to set up your service because they have to work with your current provider instead of just setting you up with a new number.

Is it difficult to install?

Not at all. I'm not exactly "Little Miss Fix-It" but I was able to do it without any problems. They send you an adapter in your welcome kit, and all you have to do is plug your phone line into one end and your internet connection into the other and you're all set.

If I can do it without problems… so can you.
