What is VoIP and why do I need it for my business?Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, allows users to make calls via the internet rather than a traditional phone system. VoIP converts sounds into digital communication and then transfers it through the internet to the phone receiver. With the UK's ISDN network due to be switched off in 2025, it is the only future proof system for your business.
Are VoIP calls good quality?Yes, you’ll get the same level of clarity as you do with a regular landline (depending on the set-up of your system and the internet connection, call quality may even be better). Calls made over your internet connection take priority over data, so you can be sure that your call quality will be consistent.
What's the minimum internet speed for a Cloud VoIP solutionThe speed you need basically depends on a how many people will be on the phone at the same time and how much data your business uses. You might think you need fibre broadband, but this isn’t necessarily the case as a VoIP call only uses a fraction of your broadband's capacity.
Can I use my existing telephone numbers?Yes, for sure - we can move the telephone number to our platform, alternatively we can supply new numbers in any range including: 0800, 0330, 07, All UK Area Codes and International Freephone
