Perks To Combining Services Of Telephone And Internet Smart companies look toward business VOIP service to cut costs as part of their communications system. In a down economy, businesses with the resources look toward the opportunity to take increased market share at the economic recovery. An organization will always have to consider their costs very carefully in order to keep a profitable bottom line, in spite of how deep their pockets are on a financial basis. Saving money on communications and IT support is a superb candidate for rigid cost controls. Phone services were ordinarily provided by a wired service provider as far back as Ma Bell. That same wired system was what initially supplied internet services. At the outset the transmission speeds were really slow. A popular specification for modems was 56.6Kbytes/sec. Compared to the current internet rates, this was almost a million times slower. From the slower speed, simple images could take minutes to upload. Internet sites were painfully slow. In the technical community, this presented difficulties, that is until new infrastructures were established and the services were separated using cable. With the new infrastructure came better transmission speeds and streaming video in real time was possible. With a substantial investment in their infrastructures, the phone companies replied. While using the original phone lines, they created technology to offer their customers similar internet speeds. Through this increase in internet speed, voice communications were left at the steady state they had enjoyed for several years. Customers paid for both services during that time. Nonetheless, around the time when real-time audio became obtainable, some entrepreneurs determined that voice communications could make use of the same technology. Two way audio streaming solutions were founded for point to point communications and internet phone calls were achievable. Once it became available, internet technology was alluring for both residential and business customers. One of the top benefits was that it cost no more to phone someone locally than to call someone around the globe. This service came at a time when overseas costs on cellular phones could run hundreds of dollars for only a few calls. Because of the importance of this technology, internet telephony signals became standardized, and specifications for voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) was made. Companies were established to provide business VOIP service, and subsequently made significant cuts to those businesses' communications costs. In the middle of this development, two competing infrastructures still remained: cable and telephone lines. This created a competition that proved healthy for customer's budgets. Bundling ultimately became a common practice and consumers had the potential to save much more money. The phone company offered price cuts on combined service through bundling, where Internet and phone were supplied for one price. Furthermore, cable companies offered television and video conferencing with their Internet products too. Those companies that used the same company and infrastructure for all of their communications services saw amazing financial savings.
