Great Moments in VoIP History: How “call for free” came to be

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Thu, Aug 14, 2014 @ 04:00 AM

My stepfather, Bob, is 89 years old. To get your brain around what it means to be 89, consider this: As a young adult, he was one of the brave soldiers who landed in the D-Day invasion at Normandy.

He is literally a part of history. He’s also an “early adopter.” Which is why he was the first person — way back in the 1990s — from whom I’d ever heard the term “VoIP.”

7 Things You Want in a Mobile VoIP App (More than free phone calls!)

Posted by Ian LeWinter on Thu, Aug 7, 2014 @ 04:00 AM

Everyone loves to get something for free. We’ll even pay to get it. “Spend $75 today and get a free gift!” It doesn’t even matter what it is. It could be free shipping or a free piggy bank. I was once the happy recipient of a plastic dog food cap. Often freebies are things we’ll never use. But we can all use free phone calls! And that’s just one of the features to expect when choosing a mobile VoIP app.

Free Conference Bridge Service vs. Paid: What’s the Best Option?

Posted by Aimee Eucce on Wed, Jul 30, 2014 @ 04:00 AM

We live in busy times. Even in the business environment, it's difficult to get all of your employees together in the same room -- especially if your employees are scattered in different cities or even different countries. While free conferencing services make it possible, they don't really offer you the reliability or features that you need. Everyone knows there’s no such thing as something for nothing. Free conference calling solutions cost your business in call quality, lack of features, and long distance charges. Not to mention, hurting your brand by giving people the perception that your organization cannot afford a paid conferencing solution. Wouldn't it be nice if you had another option? One that cost less than a movie ticket or a few Starbucks Frappuccinos?
