SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/07/14 -- Voice over Internet Protocol, more commonly known as VoIP is an online digital phone system. Callers make and receive phone calls via the internet rather than transmitting communications with a traditional phone which uses analog, a cable-based system. Due to the rapidly expanding and easily accessible high speed Internet, VoIP services are inexpensive and offer a wide range of features and applications that traditional phone services do not. The experts at VoipReview.org analyzed customer satisfaction, customer care packages, price, and add-on features in order to find you the best business VoIP providers of 2014. Each provider offers packages under $20/month, including different extensive plans that allow businesses to customize and choose the service that best fits their company's telecommunication needs.
