Gadget FAQ : What is VOIP?

What is VOIP Diagram LinkOne question that is often asked of our staff is "What is VOIP?" VOIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol which essentially means that voice calls are made over the Internet rather than over the current POTS circuit. VOIP is also referred to as IP Telephony, VOI or Internet Telephony.

Advantages of VOIP
The major advantage of VOIP calls is that calls are not charged a surcharge as you are using your Internet connection. Really appealing for those who make a lot of long-distance phone calls especially overseas.

VOIP Applications
There are a lot of companies coming out with VOIP offerings but one of the most famous is SKYPE. You've probably heard your friends talking about it. With SKYPE you not only have the ability to make free calls to other SKYPE users anywhere in the world but you also have the option of calling normal POTS telephone numbers. Try it out it's free!
