A broadband phone allows you to use your local phone number anywhere you can connect to high speed internet. For example, say you have a Saratoga area code for your broadband phone and you travel to London. While in London, people from Saratoga can call your local number and they will reach you in London. You also have the ability to make local calls to people in Saratoga from your broadband phone in London. Having a broadband phone service allows you to use your local phone anywhere you go with a high speed internet connection.

Some broadband phone providers such as ViaTalk don't charge extra for long distant calls made within the United States and Canada. As long as you use your ViaTalk broadband phone and have a high speed internet connection, all calls within the U.S and Canada are the same as local calls.

Broadband phone service providers have the ability to provide you with a local phone number even if that provider is not local to where you live. All broadband phone service providers offer different features, support and prices. It is important to find the broadband phone provider that is best for you and your needs.
