For residential VoIP services as alternatives to conventional local phones, cell-phone services and landlines – Vonage and MagicJack have both had their moments. While the technical premise of using ATA (analog telephone adapter) is similar for both, there are differences in terms of price, accessibility, advanced features and of course – after-sales service.
If you’ve been keeping up with their innovative adverts and marketing, you already know Vonage has a variety of different calling plans. They are especially attractive for the first six months of service, though they require upgrading to full-feature plans in the long term. Their name, a play on “Voice-Over-Net-Age” outlines their early start in this field (2001)
