How to make the most of your VoIP service

While the NBN rollout spells the end of traditional landlines, many Australians are finding the humble home phone still has a role to play in the new NBN world. While some choose to go mobile-only, others want to keep their home phone number for peace of mind, continuity or sometimes even sentimental reasons.

Although the technology delivering the calls is changing from old copper lines to internet-based voice (VoIP), it’s still the exact same experience (and often the same handset) for those choosing to keep a home phone connection and their existing phone number. Here are three ways to make the most of your VoIP home phone service and how MyNetFone makes it easy for you.

International calling, simplified

It can be hard to keep in contact with friends and families when they move away, but a VoIP home phone makes staying in touch simple, no matter where in the world your loved ones may be.

The upside of using a home phone to make these calls is that you can dial anytime, a stark contrast to mobile apps where you often have to wait for the person to be online or logged in before you can even try calling.

MyNetFone offers unlimited call inclusions on up to 70 countries (depending on the plan you select) with international calls to other locations starting as low as 1.9 cents per minute. Popular European countries like France, Germany, Spain and Italy are all included, while numerous countries in both South America and the Middle East are also represented. If you want to get in touch with somebody in Canada, Malaysia, Singapore or the U.S.A, MyNetFone’s All Rounder and Global Hero home phone plans also include calls to mobiles as well!

An abundance of added features

MyNetFone gives you a wealth of handy features on top of providing great value. Here’s just a few:

  • Voicemail to Email can send missed call messages straight to your inbox so you never miss another voicemail.
  • Call forwarding allows you to direct your incoming calls to another number.
  • Call waiting notifies you if another call is coming in, allowing you to then switch between the two conversations.
  • Do Not Disturb can divert calls straight to your voicemail when you need a bit of peace and quiet.
  • Meet-Me-Conferencing gives you the option of linking multiple calls together into one, meaning you can organise that get-together with everybody on the same call!

Extra phone numbers you might not realise you need

Did you know that you can have more than one phone number? You can set up an additional number in another area so that anybody living in that area can call you for the cost of a local call. Available locations for numbers range from Adelaide to Alice Springs, Cairns to Canberra, Geelong to Gladstone and close to 50 other cities in Australia, in addition to 11 locations in New Zealand! You can check out all the possible locations for additional phone numbers on our website.
