By now, you have probably heard the new buzzword, VOIP. With high-speed Internet in homes, businesses, hospitals, shopping centers and just about every McDonalds on just about every corner, it was only a matter of time before people started using the computer's Internet connection for instant communication. If you are new to VOIP, take a moment to read a rather detailed explanation of VOIP technical features at HowStuffWorks.com.

In short, VOIP allows you to make phone calls without a telephone company's hardware and the sometimes inexplicably high calling plan. With VOIP, you can make very cheap and in some cases, free phone calls using your existing broadband connection.
Of course, as the popularity of VOIP increases, companies like Vonage and AT&T will find ways to monetize all aspects of VOIP and regulators will continue looking closely at this as an alternative utility. Until then, VOIP remains one of the least expensive ways to set up a phone system in your home or place of business. While VOIP is increasing in popularity for both personal and business use, you may still need assistance in navigating the sea of hardware choices, plan options and providers.
