What is VoIP?
VoIP is an acronym for Voice over Internet Protocol, or in more common terms phone service over the Internet.
If you have a reasonable quality internet connection, you can get your phone service delivered via your Internet connection instead of through a phone company.
The main reason people are so massively turning to VoIP technology is the cost. VoIP normally gives businesses a monthly saving on their phone charges as well as giving employees the ability to work remotely with ease and always be in contact.
For individuals, VoIP is not only the thing that has revolutionized voice calling worldwide, but it is also a means to have fun communicating through computers and mobile devices for free.
How does VoIP work?
With VoIP, analog voice calls are converted into packets of data. The packets travel like any other type of data, such as e-mail, over the public Internet and/or any private Internet Protocol (IP) network.
