I'm thinking about switching to a Voice Over IP (VOIP) service for my home telephone needs. I'd be interested in anyone's experiences on the matter.

I would ask why? Is it cheaper? More features?

I deal with commercial versions of VOIP daily, and will admit I am not that impressed with it (yet). It is great for Intra-company use on a controlled Lan or leased Wan environments, but it can have issues on the public network.

My wife does a ton of long-distance intrastate calling. The rates are significantly better and the entire package with call waiting, call forwarding, etc . . . is a lot cheaper.

We installed a VOIP system at the office for our outbound LD and it cut our monthly telephone bill from $9,000 per month to $1,100. Of course we've got to amortize the cost of the new equipment but the payback is less than one year.

Eventually the entire BT network in the UK will be converted to VoIP as there isn't much sense running two parallel networks for data and voice.

If you do a lot of long distance stuff it's a no-brainer nowadays, but will eventually be a global standard. Funnily enough Bill Gates predicted this about ten years ago, when he said that domain names and IP addresses will be more important than phone numbers in the future.
