Say all you want about the benefits of convergence and extra features, but most companies and individuals will admit that the biggest attraction of switching from PSTN phone service to VoIP is the prospect of saving money — in some cases, lots of it. Why VoIP costs less One reason VoIP costs less is the difference in price structuring for long-distance service. Most VoIP plans include unlimited long-distance calling, at least within the United States and Canada. Some also include unlimited calls to western European and other countries. Even for calls to countries where you have to pay for long distance by the minute, those per-minute charges are generally considerably less than what the telcos charge.

Google will open R&D center in Singapore

Singapore would be more important IT business hub in the region. Internet search company Google Inc. plans to open a research and development center in Singapore, its first in Southeast Asia, a newspaper reported Tuesday. Google’s managing director of Southeast Asian sales and operations, Richard Kimber, was quoted in The Straits Times newspaper as saying Singapore was picked for its “very vibrant ICT (information, communications and technology) space.” Google’s research centers outside of the United States typically focus on adapting its products for local markets, but also are involved in developing new offerings and fine-tuning existing ones, the report said. Three of its eight research and development centers around the world are in Asia, the paper reported. Public relations firms representing Google in Singapore and in Sydney, where Kimber is based, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
