    Explanation
    The given statement that "e-mail is a low cost way to send and receive messages" is true. This is because email allows users to send and receive messages electronically, eliminating the need for traditional mail services.

    Explanation
    VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) allows voice communication across the Internet. It is a technology that enables the transmission of voice and multimedia content over IP networks. Unlike traditional telephone systems, which use dedicated lines for voice communication, VoIP converts voice signals into digital data packets and transmits them over the Internet. This allows for cost-effective and efficient communication over long distances, making it popular for both personal and business use. SMS (Short Message Service) is a text messaging service, and VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a secure network connection, neither of which are specifically designed for voice communication.
