What is VoIP?
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) lets you access phone services over the internet. This means that calls made over VoIP aren’t dependent on traditional phone lines. Over recent years, VoIP has been growing steadily in popularity, driven by lower costs and the convenience of an internet-connected device.
What is a virtual number?
A virtual number is a telephone number that isn’t directly connected with an individual or a business. Calls placed with a virtual number can be forwarded to a laptop or mobile device since no telephone lines are involved.
What’s the difference between a landline and VoIP phone service?
Call pricing is significantly lower with VoIP. While traditional phone companies charge for every call, VoIP calls made to other VoIP numbers are free while mobile calls have a flat rate. Since traditional hardware is no longer required, setting up a VoIP phone system tends to be a lot less costly and much quicker.
What are the disadvantages of a VoIP phone system?
VoIP phone systems require a reliable internet connection. That means that if your bandwidth is low, you won’t be able to take full advantage of your new phone system and may experience latency and jitter. Optimising your network’s router and upgrading your internet connection offers an easy fix.
Will my internet be slower with VoIP?
While the quality of your VoIP calls may be affected by the quality of your internet, your VoIP phone system will not impact your internet speeds.
Can I keep my old phone numbers?
Yes. You can quickly transfer all of your current residential or business numbers over to your new VoIP system. This is a process known as number porting and with Ringover, the option is free with your plan.
Can I set up a VoIP phone service on my own?
Yes! In most cases, you don’t need a technician to instal your residential or business phone system. The setup process for VoIP is much simpler and faster than traditional phone systems. That means you can get your new phone system up and running in no time.
Will I be able to make VoIP phone calls if I have no power?
In most cases, no. VoIP phone systems rely on an internet connection. During a power outage, your router will not be able to function, meaning you will lose internet access. Equipping your router with a backup power source can keep your phone system online in the event of a power outage. The good news is that Ringover’s mobile app can support you during a power outage as long as your smartphone has sufficient battery life and an active data plan (preferably 4G).
Can I take my phone number with me while travelling?
As long as you have access to the internet, your VoIP phone system moves with you. That means you can continue to make and take calls no matter where you are — and from any device, including your smartphone, laptop, and even analogue phone (assuming you have the right adapter).
