No Need for Additional Lines 

VoIP, as the name suggests, shares the same lines that you use for your internet connections. This means that you save on the installation costs associated with having your office wired for a specific internal line. You'll be harnessing the power of your wireless connection instead. 

Staying on the Go

Another advantage of VoIP over other forms of telephony: there is no need to stay connected via a hard wire. VoIP only requires a stable internet connection. Removing the tether to an internet line gives you the freedom to roam to anywhere you wish, while having the peace of mind in knowing that wherever there is a signal, there exists a way to stay connected on the go.
