MagicJack and Skype are two very popular VoIP providers that you can use to call any landline or cell phone. However, they do have some very distinct differences. Let’s take a look at the two VoIP providers and see which is best for you.
MagicJack is a small device that plugs into your computer and your home phone. MagicJack then allows you to call as many people as often as you want, anywhere in the USA and Canada, for a flat monthly rate. In order to use MagicJack, you must have a high speed Internet connection and the MagicJack device, which you can purchase online or at Radio Shack.
