Swift Release Of 855 Numbers Necessary

Improper Sales of Toll Free Numbers on the Rise

The reported increase in attempts to profit from the illegal sales of 800, 888, 877, and 866 numbers are partly in response to rapidly dwindling supplies of quality toll free numbers. Experts advise anyone interested in obtaining an 800 number should legally obtain a toll free number through a reliable toll free service provider to avoid hefty fines and/or losing their established phone numbers.

Telecoms Turning Away from VoIP in Favor of Fiber Optics

Hearing more and more about fiber optics lately. Fiber optics used for telecommunications is still considered more reliable than VoIP, particularly for long distance calls, because it allows for longer intervals of signal transmission without interruptions. Fiber optics provides a quality connection that ensures clarity in every call. With this technology, optical fibers are used instead of metal, reducing lost connections from electromagnetic interference. Fiber optics is also considered more secure. It is difficult, if not impossible, to detect motion through the fibers. This reduces concerns over phone calls being improperly monitored.
