    Use http://www.popfax.com I used it for a couple of years and never wanted to switch to other provider. They’re good in quality and they have low pric – smth about 0.05 for a page. What I like the most is different apps they have. Like, for example, they have an app for mobiles so you could fax from anywhere where you have a net)

    Hi! To send fax by internet, there is no need of special hardware or software. Just use one of online professional fax services, such as http://www.popfax.com or http://www.toofax.com, etc. Good Luck!

    How about the Windows 7 built-in Fax and Scan program? Go to:
    Start->All Programs->Fax and Scan.
    It’s basic, but perfectly usable.

    To enable it click Control Panel -> Programs->Turn Windows feature On or Off->Print and Document services->Windows Fax and Scan and tick it if unticked and click OK.

      If you cannot find it in the menu as defined, just click on start->devices and printers->fax and double click for the program to open. However, you need to have a fax modem configured on your computer.

      As far as I recall, the Windows fax application requires a modem connection to send a fax directly from the computer. It doesn’t use any broadband connection.

      That is exactly what I have mentioned in the comment above :)
