What is VOIP?
VoIP stands for "Voice over IP" or
"Voice over Internet Protocol." VoIP is new
way of making and receiving phone calls over
a high speed (broadband) Internet
connection. VoIP is a far more cost
effective solution to the traditional phone
service. Furthermore VoIP providers have a
far larger scope of features that are

How does it work?
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)
technology provides a way to send an analog
signal (the sound of your voice) over a digital
medium, the Internet. In order to understand how
this process works, we can use a simple real
world example. Let's say that you have our
service and a traditional analog telephone. Your
telephone is connected to your high speed
Internet connection using the FREE Talk Motion
adapter that we send to you.
Call from you: When you pick up your phone and dial the
number, the Talk Motion adapter converts your
regular telephone into digital form. The
resulting digital phone number is sent by the
Talk Motion adapter to our network. The network
looks at the number to determine the location
the call is going to and routes the call to the
right location. The person receiving the call,
regardless of what type of service they use,
will establish a telephone connection and a
regular conversation will start.
Call placed to you: The person calling you, regardless of what
type of service they use, picks up there phone
and dials your telephone number. The call is
sent out to our network, which turns around and
routes the call to your Talk Motion adapter. The
Talk Motion adapter converts the digital signal
into analog form and rings your phone.
