The local VoIP programs listed below have a set number of minutes that are available for use each month. Some of the plans offer 200 minutes, some are for 500 minutes and a couple might be for more. The thing to remember with local VoIP plans is that the minutes included aren't just long distance minutes, but a combination of local and long distance minutes.
If you use your telephone more than a few hours per month, you will want to look on the unlimited plans page for plans with more minutes. In most cases, unlimitd service is only $5.00 more per month that signing up for one of these low minute plans. While these plans are cheaper, please remember that there is a per minutre charge if the plan's minutes are exceeded in any given month.
