I don’t do technology reviews for living; instead I have an inbound passion for reviewing technology toys in my blood. Whenever I see a new technology service or product out in the market, I just can’t resist reviewing it. VoIP technology is one of the areas where I want to share my experience with people by helping them know more about a product or service.
Quality of Voice
I love to hear voice on Internet phone. The most serene sound of phone is on a good Internet phone service. One of the earlier impresser’s that impressed me about VoIP service was the voice quality that they offered. You will see a lot of advertisements of Internet phone companies that claim to offer very high quality of voice to their customers, but when you use them, they thoroughly disappointment you. Axvoice was however different in this regard. I made several calls to New Jersey, New York and California, and they all went smooth. Then I contacted two of my friends in Great Britain and France, and there wasn’t any difference in call quality. The voice was clear and even longer duration calls went on without any hiccups.
The phone bill you receive at the end of the month should be an important consideration in choosing a VoIP service. If you don’t have any reduction in your phone bill, you need to dump your service and look for a new one. Local calls cost the same with Axvoice like in case of any other Internet phone service. International calls on the other hand are significantly cheaper to make. I found the international call rates surprisingly low and even beating some of the renowned players of the VoIP industry. If you have friends using Axvoice, you will be able to make them unlimited free calls as well. This is good news for people having friends and family members using Axvoice.
Setting up the Phone
Axvoice uses the VoIP equipment to make and receive phone calls. I ordered my phone through regular mail and received it within few days. The setting up of the phone was relatively easy for me. All I had to do was follow the guidelines as a lame user to set it up. There is a VoIP ATA offered in the package. You need to connect the VoIP ATA with your Internet line on one end and phone on the other. I often find it very annoying that I have to make a lot of settings to keep my Internet phone running with slow Internet connection. Thankfully, I did not have to do all that with Axvoice and it went up and running within no time.
Bring Your Own Device or BYOD
Axvoice facilitates its new phone users transferring themselves to it from other services by offering them BYOD or bring your own device feature. This feature allows the users to use the equipment of their old VoIP provider while having the phone service of Axvoice by paying a very small amount. Many VoIP providers however compel you to invest their equipment instead of facilitating you.
Axvoice offers more than two dozen features in its service. The important thing to remember is that Axvoice does not charge anything extra for the more advanced features that it offers. The average VoIP provider categorizes features into basic and advanced to charge more to its customers. This is another saving you will have once switching to Axvoice. I don’t find anything bad about Axvoice which would be going against it. When I find everything in Axvoice that I need from a good VoIP provider like call quality, low call rates, and more advanced features, why wouldn’t I go for it.
