What is VoIP phone

VoIP, short for Voice over Internet Protocol, in contrary to the traditional public switched telephone network, is a term for delivery of voice communications over IP networks.

There are three types of VoIP phone services:

1. Use an analog telephone adaptor (ATA) to connect between an existing telephone jack and the IP networks. This type of service is fixed to one location and is offered by broadband internet providers at a cheaper flat-rate plan.

2. Dedicated VoIP phone which allow VoIP calls without the use of a computer. However it is connected directly to the IP network (WiFi or Ethernet).

3. The user can install VoIP software on their computers that allow VoIP calling without dedicated hardware. And you can move to any country or location.
