Default Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) made easier

Competition is getting rather hot among those offering VoIP services, with many of them are making price the most attractive feature.

Jajah has introduced a new service which is taking a different approach by making ease of use the most attractive feature. They are lower than some and higher than others. But they are working on making their service as easy to use as possible.

Jajah isn't just restricted to Windows and you don't need to install any software or have a microphone for your computer. The actual call is from one telephone to another.

Lycos has also introduced a new VoIP service. It is Windows-based and is free provided you for credit card or Netflix offers. They also display banners on their service. It is one cent a minute for calls within the United States if you don't sign up for offers.

People with landlines are sooo 2004, lol. Ive had vonage voip service for about a year and a half and its been fantastic. The features that voip offer are far beyond anything a regular phone company can do, including my favourite, receiving my voice mail by email as mp3s.

Its available in a decent amount of markets in Canada, not sure about the US, but as the coverage expands I can't see phone companies standing much of a chance. Unfortunately most people only have access to these crummy services that require a computer to use so they will stay with their regular phone until the service gets better.

I am not good at predicting the future so I try to avoid it. But I would guess that if all of this gets real hot and the telephone companies start to worry, then they will try to come up with something as good or better in order to survive. It will be fun to watch and see how all of this unfolds.

Jajah wants to start moving away from the need for a computer for service as quickly as possible. That is covered in the second link of my original post. From the article, here is what Jajah has planned
Quote:
A further improvement of the service will take place in two months time when customers can initiate VoIP calls from their mobile phones.

"In May we will bring Jajah to the mobile phone. Consumers will be able to use Jajah from any mobile phone to any destination. We'll solve it by sending a little bit of software to the phone," said co-founder Roman Scharf.
