How To Send and Receive Faxes With an Internet Fax Service

Despite the advent of email, there are still times when you need to send or receive a fax and using an internet fax service makes this easy.

The trouble is, nowadays those times aren’t necessarily often enough to justify renting an extra phone line, buying a fax machine and keeping it topped up with paper and ink. Plus you’re not necessarily always near a physical fax machine – there’s probably one at the office but you likely don’t want one at home as well.

Fortunately, you’re not alone with this problem.

There are now companies who offer a virtual fax service.
