What is VoIP?

VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol and is a technology that is destined to replace our phone lines as we know them today.

VoIP service providers are referred to as carriers, and protocols which are used to carry voice signals over the IP network are commonly referred to as voice over IP or VoIP protocols. Some cost savings are due to using a single network to carry voice and data, especially where users have existing unused network capacity that can apply VoIP at no additional cost. VoIP to VoIP phone calls are usually free, while VoIP to PSTN has a cost that's carried by the VoIP user.

Two type of PSTN to VoIP services exist: the first is the DID (Direct Inward Dialing) and the other one uses access numbers. DID will connect the caller directly to the VoIP user while access numbers require the caller to input the extension number of the VoIP user. Access numbers are usually free for the VoIP user because they are charged as a local call, so essentially the VoIP user pays a phone bill. DID usually works just with monthly payments.

By using the products of the VoIP providers, we can reap the many benefit of them. We can take our phone line with us, anywhere we have internet connection, we can lower our phone bills, we are able to eliminate our long distance bill, we may be able to bypass excessive taxes and we are also able to avoid monopolistic phone companies all over the world by using the latest generation of phone calls combined with the traditional one.
