How it Works
Voip works just like a regular phone with just one key difference — how the phone call actually gets to your telephone. Instead of using the high priced telephone company's wiring, Voip routes your phone calls directly to your telephone using your high speed internet connection. You hear a dial tone and make your phone calls just like you've always done. What's changed is that you don't pay a big bill to use the phone company's wires.
What is voip?
Voip, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a technology that enables people to use the Internet as the transmission medium for telephone calls. Voice data is sent in packets through your high-speed Internet connection rather than by traditional POTS lines (Plain Old Telephone Service). Voip is significantly less expensive than typical telephone long distance packages, plus one high speed Internet connection can serve for multiple phone lines with no loss in functionality, reliability, or voice quality.
If I use Voip, who can I call?
Anyone and everyone! Any local phone, mobile phone, long distance, or international number — if a number can be dialed, you can call it with Voip. And if you have domestic long distance included, you can say goodbye to your long distance bill as well. Like to call Internationally? No problem! Phone calls are crystal clear and with our amazing International rates, you can save more than 50% over traditional rates.
What if I need to call 911?
Voip includes E911 service, allowing you to connect to 911 just like a traditional phone. If you need emergency service, help is only 3 numbers away.
