Simple but Important Questions on VoIP

At the times of financial crisis it is only natural when people are especially eager to find cheaper substituents for any services they use. That's why there is a worldwide tendency currently to switch to VoIP technology for mobile or phone conversations. This applies not only to individuals but organizations as well. Internet enters more and more areas of our life. Internet is or will be everywhere now or soon: it is in your home, in your car, in you phone, in your TV, in the fridge and glasses, etc. In fact we cannot imagine our life without internet any more  But communications and internet are perceived to form an indivisible unity. Think now of VoiP - a communication technology based on internet. It does a revolutionary change in peoples live, it saves money and equipment.

Our advantage is that we do care about your ability to effectively use VoIP irrespective if you are a beginner or an advanced VoIP user. We are ready to assist in solving any uncertainly or issue related to your using VoIP. Here is why we have designed a very basic FAQ as to the very first potential questions you may have before installing VoIP.

Question: Will I have the same or better sound quality with VoIP as I had with conventional telephone lines?

Answer: Yes, you will have not only the same quality, but even better one. But because VoIP relies on Internet, then your Internet provider becomes the crucial reason whether your VoIP will be as good as land line or not. In any case, there is always the option to change the provider. The other point is that you equipment must be properly set, in any case you can ask you VoIP service provider to connect your VoIP system directly to the modem, which will boost the connection and thus the quality. 

Question:  Can there ever be any  negative situations related to VoIP?

Answer: Yes, for example if electricity or Internet is gone, then you will not have VoIP. But this  is not going to happen to you, is it? Unless of course you plan to use VoIP in Amazon river or some African desert, where there may be problems in Internet availability. Plus, many VoIP providers may not include the visit of an expert to set up your equipment at you location. So you have to ask if this service is included in the price or you have to set it yourself.

Questions: Can there be any complications, if I use VoIP to call emergency services?

Answer: Yes, because in some countries (for example in the US) the registered address of the caller  automatically appears on the operator's PC screen. So if you for some reason did not manage to give the exact address of your present location (say there is an emergency and an emotional 911 call), then the ambulance will come to your registered address, and not to the hotel you are in at present.

Question: What is the very minimum Internet speed for having normal VoIP

Answer: In reality not huge Internet speed is needed for VoIP (around 100 kilobits for both call directions). Anyway, you must also consider to have a bigger bandwidth if you plan to use Internet as such alongside VoiP services. So it is important to have a good router, but an upload speed around 512 kps would be OK. Also stability is paramount for VoIP, so even if you have little Internet, anyway it must be stable so that VoIP would not be interrupted. There are some technologies to make sure VoIP runs smoothly, one example is Quality of Service (QoS)
