How to reduce your phone bill

online casino Canada
Ever wonder how to reduce your telephone bill? In this trying times and with every prices of commodities just keeps getting higher and higher, everyone are thinking of ways to cut that budget.

Telephone bill is one of the things that you can look at. No I am not talking about refraining from calling your friends and loved ones or shortening your calls from say hour to 10 minutes to 5 minutes. I am actually talking about making a call from 10 minutes to an hour or more at no cost! I am talking about calls through Voice Over Internet Protocol or VOIP.

Let me tell you a story, before I have discovered VOIP I used to call overseas for about 30-40 minutes every other day to my loved ones back home. But this still seems to be too short. But all things changed when a friend informed me about SKYPE. Skype like any other VOIP service (Yahoo! Messenger, MSN, etc.) are free. All you need to do is signup an account, download the client software, install it on your computer, launch the installed program, login with your account and you can now call whoever you wish to call for free! In the case of Skype, you can even call a phone but for this service you already need to pay.

But wait, there is even more. With VOIP, you don't only get to hear the other person, you will also get to see them!

Looking back, if am to compute for my call expenses since then I would have lost around fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000). If I am to consider my monthly internet charge as the equivalent to my phone bills, it would have cost me around two thousand dollars ($2,000). I still have saved thirteen thousand dollars.

I am a Skype user (no I am not affiliated with it) and ever since I started using their service, more than 6 years ago, I never had to pay a single dollar to call my family back home again.
