Voipo review

58958-voipo-boxVoIPo bills itself as “The Likable Phone Company.” And if you’re talking about their prices, VoIPo is the likable phone company.

First off, VoIPo doesn’t confuse customers (or potential customers) with complex or meaningless differences between residential and business VoIP services: in the end, they’re almost exactly the same:

  • Small business and home phone lines both cost $15 for a month-to-month contract or $8.25 a month for a year-long contract
  • Small business and home phone service both deliver unlimited calls to the US and Canada
  • Small business and home phone service both have the same fair use limit (5,000 minutes)
  • Small business and home phone service both have the same feature set

Other pluses of VoIPo

VoIPo has easy-to-understand and easy-to-read terms of service. And VoIPo also has the backing of HostGator, a leading web hosting company with a very good reputation for customer service and service consistency.

The prices are low, the terms are easy, and the service looks good. Give VoIPo a go.
