Voice Over Internet Protocol

It’s Time to Hang Up on Your Analog Phone Lines

Just as the country made the transition from dial-up internet connections to the faster and more efficient DSL (digital subscriber line) cable broadband system in use today, the FCC has announced plans to phase out analog phone lines in the US.

Fortunately, the transition to VoIP is relatively simple and cost-effective, and the benefits of upgrading to VoIP are well-documented.

Our experienced IT Technicians have completed everything from multi-tier VoIP network installations to digital phone line conversion projects for residential, commercial, and governmental institutions around the country.


Voiceover Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that allows you to make voice and video calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line.

Yes. VoIP systems are configured to convert analog voice signals into digital signals, then send them as data via broadband.

Technically, yes.

There are many apps and internet sites, like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Google Duo and Hangouts, Skype, and Viber that can be used to make and receive voice and video calls.

However, many of these companies operate on a freemium business model, meaning free options provide access to limited service options, and more complex or advanced services like unlimited or international usage require a paid subscription.

No, they use two different methodologies.

VoWiFi/Wi-Fi Calling reaches your carrier over the Internet instead of a cell tower to establish a phone line.

Unlike VoWiFi calls, VoIP calls don’t depend on an operator but transfer voice data packets over the Internet directly to the switched telephone network.

No, you don’t. However, a landline phone that has been connected to a VoIP adapter can be used to make calls over the internet.

Yes, you do have the ability to send and receive SMS messages from an online platform. Customers will experience the interaction exactly as if you’re sending messages from a mobile phone.

The Future of Communications Has Already Arrived

Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, and Face Time are all examples of communication options supported by VoIP technology. Customers who have officially transitioned to VoIP systems have discovered:

  • VoIP lines are easier and cheaper to install - Initial installation of analog phone set-ups can cost between $50-$100 per line. A new VoIP system can be installed in minutes with little setup fee or disruption to your daily business.
  • VoIP lines are simpler to maintain, repair, and upgrade - Unlike analog lines, which required an onsite technician to make needed repairs or regular maintenance to the phone lines, maintenance and updates for a hosted VoIP phone system can be taken care of remotely by your provider.
  • VoIP lines are cheaper to operate - On average, monthly service fees and call rates are more expensive for analog phone lines than VoIP systems. In fact, VoIP phone systems typically offer free or substantially reduced calling rates for all national and international calls.
  • VoIP line offer superior service options - VoIP phone systems offer advanced features at no additional cost or need for hardware add-ons. VoIP systems transmit not only voice, but video, and any form of multimedia available on the Internet.
