What is VoIP?

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) takes advantage of existing technology to create a less expensive alternative to a landline. VoIP stands for "voice over internet protocol" or "voice over IP". VoIP is, essentially, voice sent over an internet line instead of a phone line. 


While traditional phone service requires a telephone company that deploys analog lines to carry voice signals, VoIP completely cuts out the telephone company, converts voice signals into data, and sends it over the internet, making for a calling experience that’s far clearer than a traditional phone call — and at a much lower cost!
