How Vonage VoIP home phone service works

Who says that copper telephone lines are the best way to make calls? Not us. By tapping into your existing high-speed Internet service, Vonage transforms your phone service into a crystal clear, digital calling solution that can help save you money.

Literally tens of millions of people have turned to VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services and this number continues to grow. Your device simply plugs into your Internet router and then into your phone. It’s that easy. Plus it comes with advanced calling features like Vonage Visual Voicemail, which transcribes your voicemail messages and sends them to your email as text. With Vonage® Extensions® you can make and receive nationwide and even internationals calls on your mobile phone – all as part of your home phone plan (carrier data rates may apply). And, when you switch to Vonage you can keep your existing number for free. You should expect more from your home phone service. We get it, and we got it.
