How does a VoIP home phone service work?

Home phone services utilizing VoIP use cloud phones which connect callers using the internet rather than a traditional landline service. By using Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, companies like Ooma provide multiple home phone options: you can place calls not only from standard VoIP phones but also supported iOS and Android devices through the Ooma app and a wifi connection. 

What does this mean for customers? More flexibility and mobility with your home phone service. Better yet, with the Ooma home phone service you still get all of the features you love like voicemails, caller-ID, call waiting, call blocking, and more - but it costs much less thanks to an easy DIY installation, free unlimited calling (all you pay are taxes and fees), and no contract.
