One of the great benefits of VoIP is that you can have a telephone
number assigned to you in an area code where you do not live or work.
Businesses often want to have a local presence in many different cities
with a local phone number for customers to call. Business VoIP service
allows a customer to call that local number which can be answered by the
company anywhere in the country. Residential customers get virtual
telephone numbers in local cities so that friends and family can call
them without incurring long distance charges.
