VoIP

What is VoIP?

Voice over IP (VoIP) services deliver voice signals digitally, over your computer network, instead of as an analog signal over the copper-wire landline provided by the local phone company.

Not all VoIP is the same. Sometimes cable and internet companies use VoIP to deliver services that just mimic traditional phone lines. These often use the technology without offering any advantages.

Cloud-hosted means that all phone devices connect to the phone system over the same network your computers use to access the internet.
