You have a limited budget and you love your old phones. Does that mean you can’t ever enjoy the benefits of VoIP that everyone is talking about? No, not at all. A VoIP adapter is your answer.

A VoIP adapter, also known as an Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) converts a VoIP signal to an analog tone so that you can use existing analog devices such as your old phone or fax machines with VoIP service. In other words, you will be benefiting from VoIP just like other VoIP users without having to replace your existing analog equipment! Better yet, you can get a new ATA for just under 60 dollars! Here are 5 popular ATA choices to get your foot in the door:
