How Does VoIP Phone Service Work?
Your VoIP phone number looks and acts like an ordinary local number—you’ll be able to call, text, check your voicemail, save contacts and more. But to do these things, you’ll need a good internet connection. Here’s how it actually works.
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology converts your voice to a digital signal and transmits it over the internet, using a broadband connection. It’s a cloud-based phone line that isn’t tied to a single location, SIM card, or phone. Just like your email, you can access your VoIP phone number from any device—but reliable internet is a must. To call, text or check your messages, you’ll use a desktop portal or mobile app (we provide both!).
A VoIP number can help you separate business from personal, protect your data, and remain anonymous (when you want to be). Since there’s no need for special equipment or software, getting started is quick and easy. Your only expense is the low monthly fee. But the best benefit may be flexibility: you can choose from hundreds of area codes, and you don’t even need a phone to have a phone. You can take calls on your desktop, laptop or other devices instead.
