VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) or Internet base phones. Here is what they all have in common. First the quality of the calls will always depend on the bandwidth. The downstream (what you hear) is always adequate assuming that no one is downloading data or sharing your bandwidth (your internet connection). What the other person hears is your upload speed and that is the limiting factor in Mexico. If someone has difficulty hearing you, it is generally because of your upload speed. This can be a problem on shared networks or if some one on your network is uploading a photo or email with attachments while your talking.

Assuming that you have good download and upload speeds there are several choices:

Magic Jack is by far the cheapest for most users, around $50 for the device and $25 per year there after. With Magic Jack you plug the device into the computer and plug a regular phone into the Magic Jack. It loads the required software (Mac or PC) and you are ready to make calls. The down side - you have to have the computer running to make and receive phone calls. They offer free voice mail if the computer is off. Please note: you will have difficulty burning CD's or DVD's with Magic Jack plugged into the computer.

Skype is a good choice and is relatively low cost. You can make calls from virtually any computer. The Skype software and routing system can compensate for shared bandwidth and shared networks. For an additional cost, Skype will provide you with a dedicated phone number and voice mail. I use a USB headset for best quality phone calls.

Ooma is the next lowest cost. Depending on the vendor, the box will cost $200 to $250 (USD). I bought a refurbished one for $100. After the initial cost, there are no annual costs associated with Ooma. Free calls for life (probably the life of Ooma which has been in business for over 6 years and seems to be expanding). You plug Ooma into your broadband router, plug a phone into Ooma and your are ready to call. You have a number that people can use to call you with voice mail. The computer does not have to be on.

Vonage is the next along with Packet 8. They both work the same as Ooma. You plug their modem into your router. With Vonage you get free calls to over 50 countries including calls to Mexico. The call quality has improved greatly over the years and is much improved with the new modem.

It is always best to go directly to each providers web site to see exactly what they offer!!!!
