What to Look for in Residential VoIP Reviews
Residential VoIP use has been rapidly growing, especially for households that make a lot of long distance calls, or calls over-seas. This increase in demand for residential VoIP providers has led to an increase in VoIP providers in general, which can make it difficult for the consumer to determine which provider is best.
We're here to help.
Residential VoIP is a great service, but you always want to know what you're buying. These residential VoIP reviews are here to help you choose the right VoIP service, so we do our best to thoroughly read and evaluate all of our reviews, and we adhere strictly to our submission guidelines. When reading residential VoIP reviews, there are some specific things to look for.
When looking at the residential VoIP review, you should ask yourself:
- Is the review positive?
- Are there multiple positive reviews?
- Are the ratings positive and do they match the review?
Is the review positive?
Positive reviews are an excellent indicator to the quality of a residential VoIP provider. We thoroughly vet all reviews, so that they are honest and helpful, and that you don't have to worry about misleading or inflated reviews.
Are there multiple positive reviews?
A higher number of positive reviews than negative reviews is obviously indicative of at least a semi-reputable VoIP provider. But something to keep in mind is that while a provider may have a lot of reviews, that doesn't necessarily mean that they are the best provider for your residential VoIP needs. The ratio of positive to negative reviews may be a better indicator than total reviews.
Are the ratings positive and do they match the review?
In order to have consistency with our ratings, we use 5 basic criterion, which include sound quality, reliability, features, customer service, and price. If your rating matches up with the review, its a good sign you're reading a dependable review.
When reading the content of the residential VoIP review, there are specific criterion you should keep in mind to help you in your decision:
- Your residential VoIP needs, including long distance, international calling, and the need for video chat capability.
- Your budget, and how each provider's plans fit into that budget.
- The services of each provider (like 3 way calling, video chat, call waiting, etc.), as well as the length of each provider's plans.
Also, when you're reading residential VoIP reviews, know that while a provider may have a lot of reviews, that doesn't necessarily mean that they are the best provider for your residential VoIP needs. Smaller, lesser known providers often have excellent residential VoIP deals.
