Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP)

Voice over internet protocol is commonly referred to as VoIP and pertains to technology that allows voice and multimedia to be delivered over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet.

VoIP is available on mobile phones, computers and devices that have internet access readily available. Calls, text messages and multimedia can be sent over a VoIP provider using 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi or a wired internet connection.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandates that VoIP service providers in the U.S.A. must comply with requirements comparable to those for traditional telecommunications service providers.
