Internet Voice, also known as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP
), is a technology that allows you to make telephone calls using a broadband Internet
connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line. Some services using VoIP
may only allow you to call other people using the same service, but others may allow you to call anyone who has a telephone number - including local, long distance, mobile, and international numbers. Also, while some services only work over your computer or a special VoIP
phone, other services allow you to use a traditional phone through an adaptor.
