Google Voice Outside US with VPN

In today’s information age, people are connected on a global scale. With the advent of ICTs, working with international partners is a breeze. Staying in touch with your loved ones has never been this easy. There are many ways to connect to other people across the globe. If you are working with people in the United States or you have loved ones living there, we have discovered probably one of the best ways to communicate with them.

Since VoIP has been the trend these past few years, we have tried a few but none really stuck, except for one. It’s a product of the biggest name in the Internet, Google. Their telecommunication service, Google Voice, has changed the way people communicate from the United States domestically and internationally. With a few presses of a button from mobile phones, people from the US can easily call anyone in the country, and outside. You can place international calls in an instant. If you’re within North America, it’s free to make a call from your PC to any landline in the region. If you want to call an international destination, it’s also free as long as you make a PC-to-PC call. Both Voice and Video call can be made with this application. The great thing about it is that it can be used on Windows, Linux, and Mac.

By simply setting your application correctly, either via Gmail or a web-based application, you don’t have to pay for anything when you call from the US or Canada as long as the person you are calling is within the US and Canada. Of course, you can’t make international calls for free. That would be too much. If you’re outside US and Canada and you’re trying to call in those countries, Google Voice is just charging $0.01.

But, did you know that you can do something so that all your calls will be free regardless of your location? Currently, your IP address shows that you’re from that foreign country outside US. What if you can change your IP address so that it’ll show that you’re calling from the US?

A VPN can help you with that. Can you imagine the possibilities that a VPN could do for you? If you’re travelling anywhere in the world and you still want to stay in touch with your friends in the US, using a VPN with Google Voice can let you make free calls to the US anytime. The VPN changes your IP address so that it will indicate that you’re on a US IP address. Thus, Google Voice won’t charge you with anything. You won’t need to leave your iPads, Mac, and Laptop at home anymore. You can use them wherever country you go to. Of course, if you live in another country and want to take advantage of this, you can also do so with the help of a VPN service provider.

What are you waiting for? Contact a VPN service provider so that you can enjoy unlimited calls to the US and Canada any time you want.
