Recent reports have indicated that far more than 1 billion individuals will be using
free mobile VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) application technology through their
smartphones within the next four years. Apparently it is only through the lack of public
awareness that VoIP is not already the standard technology used for both fixed lines
and mobile devices.
Both Google Talk and Skype are already experiencing high levels of success with an
amazing number of users, even though many that connect through the system are most
likely not aware that they are using a VoIP platform. The quick rise in popularity of both
Skype and Google Talk are due to their ability to be downloaded for free as an app on a
mobile device, or as a provided application on their fixed lines.

Potential customers should realize that downloading a VoIP app from an app store is
a simple process. Once downloaded all that is required is a simple sign in through a

homes and businesses can quickly begin using their cell phone to make free calls. VoIP
technology through a smart phone app avoids traditional roaming fees both domestically
and out of the country, because the apps use the technology of the Internet instead.
Any customer that is fully utilizing their VoIP smart phone app will have the ability to
downgrade their smart phone mobile plan, along with reducing or eliminating monthly
landline bills. Using technology that is already in the phone, users can quickly realize a
savings on their monthly bill, without diminishing the quality of their calls.
