There are a number of factors that contribute to making IP Telephony less expensive than traditional Phone Service.
Taxes & Fees: Traditional Phone Companies pass along numerous taxes and fees, some dating back to funding US War efforts more than 50 years ago. On a Traditional Phone Bill, these taxes can add another 30% to your monthly cost. Voice of IP is classified as an Internet Service. Since Internet is a relatively new technology, the main taxing entity is the Federal Government. While Local and State Agencies are rushing to create special Fees on IP Telephony, the current total taxes & fees add around 15% of your Voipia Phone Service.
Service Plans: Similar to the taxes a Traditional Phone Company has to deal with, there is an unbelievable amount of Government Regulations that add costs to Local, In-State, and Long Distance Calls. Voice communications over the Internet is considered Inter-State Traffic and uses far less Switching Equipment to complete a phone call. This allows us to more aggressively price Unlimited Calling Plans that save you money.
