What is VoIP?

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a comparatively new technology that allows you to use your computer's network link as a Phone service.

VoIP technology is mounting in popularity. Calls using this technology are cheaper than those on the usual phone network, mainly for long distance and international numbers. As broadband internet access becomes extra widespread, VoIP is also becoming an ever more easy and suitable way to communicate.

You need a computer to use approximately all VoIP services. Some may require special software and equipment, such as microphones.

Some services may offer features such as meeting and video calls, but might not be able to offer some customary phone services.
