VOIPo Review

VOIPo was started by former Hostgator executives. Hostgator is a well known name in the web hosting industry. VOIPo offers telephone service using a high speed Internet connection. This is also known as Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP. Routing calls over the Internet is cheaper than traditional landline service. Therefore, VOIPo can pass the savings on to customers.

VOIPo offers home phone and small business phone service. If you use less than 5,000 minutes per month, VOIPo should work for you. If you use more than 5,000 minutes per month, you would probably be better off with a business phone service since VOIPo is for those who use less than 5,000 minutes per month.

The cost of VOIPo is $18 per month, or $185 for two years. If you pay in advance, the average cost per month is much lower than if you pay by the month. $185 for two years averages out to $7.71 per month.


VOIPo does not include calls to Alaska or Hawaii. You will need to pay a per minute rate for calls to those states, along with calls to other countries. You can call Canada for no additional charge.

After you sign up for VOIPo, you will receive an adapter in the mail, which you use to connect your phone and Internet connection. You cannot plug the VOIPo adapter into your house wiring (it is against VOIPo's Terms of Service to do this, since it may harm the adapter). Therefore, you must have your phone, or cordless phone system, next to the VOIPo adapter.

You shouldn't notice a difference with VOIPo versus a traditional phone service, except for it's lower cost, and additional features. In regards to features, there are the normal features you would expect, such as Caller ID w/Name, Call Waiting, and Three Way Calling. In addition to that, there is Advanced Voicemail, where you can listen to voicemail online, and get an email or text message notifying you of a new voicemail. There is also a free Rollover Line included. This is a second line using the same number as the first. The Rollover Line is included free of charge (as of this review).

Overall, VOIPo is a great choice for home and small business phone service, as long as you have a high speed Internet connection (DSL, Cable, or Fiber).
