How does it work?
VoIP is making use of your internet connection in order to traffic your voice calls. Simply put, your voice is converted into DATA packets. These DATA packets are then transprorted over the internet to its destination. Once it has arrived at the destination these DATA packets are then converted back into an audio file and heard by the callee on the other side.
Where traditional PSTN or GSM providers are involved, calls are trafficked over the internet to a point and then originated and terminated on that network.
What do you need?
There are a few ways to connect with VoIP. Either via an on-site PABX, a hosted PABX or directly connected to an IP telephone (this could also be your cellular phone).
In addition a decent speed internet connection is required. This can be any of the following:
ADSL (min 4MB/s)
