Is the quality of a VoIP call as good as a traditional phone?
Yes, advanced compression of voice data means calls can be transmitted over the internet without much of a dependence on bandwidth, without reducing call quality.
How do I make or receive a VoIP call?
You will need to enter your SIP Username, SIP password and SIP server into the account configuration of your device. These credentials are available once your order is processed.
How well does VoIP work over a mobile network and will the call quality be good?
As long as you have a data connection, then the call will connect. Do remember that VoIP is using the internet, so is subject to having a connection to the internet to work.
