With the increase in internet speed and the pace of life globally, it has become increasingly glaring that technology is not about to slow down … not just yet. What with the frequent discoveries and inventions that have trailed our paths and opened up new vistas of opportunity for most of us. It is becoming increasingly easier and cheaper to stay in touch with our loved ones regardless of where they currently are. With just a computer and internet access, it is very easy to send messages to anywhere in the world free of charge and to make calls for just pennies. One of such facilities that have recently improved the rate of communication globally is the VoIP more extensively called the Voice over Internet Protocol. VoIP has a lot of advantages and both individuals and organizations are now adopting it because of its low cost. People can now call their friends everywhere in the globe using their PCs as a result of such software as Skype.

Most VoIP providers often add lots of bonuses to their packages to attract more buyers or subscribers and increase its desirability. So, it is common to see providers including such packages as cheaper phone call rates as low as 2 cents per minute, clear video calls et.c. But what they do not tell you is that using VoIP also has its disadvantages. However, we won’t be looking at the disadvantages in this article. On the contrary, we will be examining how we can improve the VoIP quality so that you can get the best possible value for your money.

1.    Improve your internet Speed. Like it or not, your internet connection is a major role player in enhancing your VoIP user experience. Some VoIP telephony services would tell you they can help you install it on Dial up internet connections. This is definitely counter productive as VoIP needs high speed internet connections to perform at optimum functionality. If you continue to use Dial Up, it is most likely that you would not enjoy the services rendered. It is generally advisable to use at least broadband internet connection so as to enjoy your calls.
2.    Replacement of equipment. Don’t worry about this. It is about the service provider. They could easily replace their current wires with higher quality ones to reduce the frequency of static. Also the static is more likely to increase during weather situations like hurricanes, winds and storms. If this happens, just logging off and allowing your computer to rest for just 10-0 minutes will definitely fix it.
3.    Get a good mic and a high quality webcam. Sometimes, the calls may not come in clear because the user is not using a good, clear microphone. This is very necessary to get the best out of VoIP calls. A good mic is more likely to bring in more clarity and will reduce the other person’s straining to hear what you are saying. Better still get a good quality head set with microphone attached, it makes the commutation clearer.
