VoIP technology has the ability to completely change the telephone industry as we know it.
Big changes are in store for the way we use telephones and this section will address some

internet for free (not including ISP cost) in a simple fashion by chat rooms, instant

provider due to the lower costs available. Almost everyone in the United States has a cell

technology. New pocket PC phones are being developed to incorporate support for Wi-Fi as
well as cellular networks. These phones will be able to switch from the users Wi-Fi
