High Speed Voip: Facilitating Easy Phone Conversations

By: Kristen

Have you ever felt like tearing your hair down while you are waiting for a file or a document to download? In such instances, the chances that you are using a dial-up connection having a low bandwidth is very high. Dial-up connections can be used to access the internet - albeit at low speeds. However, using the IP telephony solutions through a dial-up connection also comes with certain disadvantages.

The transfer of voice data through the low bandwidths of the dial-up networks is very slow. It can be said that the bandwidths of these connections are not optimum to support efficient data transmission. Consequently, a slowing down in the speed of data transfer is quite evident. A lot of congestion while making calls and a low standard in the quality of the calls is very much evident.

High speed VoIP changes all that and for the better. There is no congestion while people are making long distance calls and that too at very affordable rates. The quality of the calls is quite impressive and users do not have to wait till eternity to hear the voices of their friends or colleagues at the other end. It can be said with a lot of conviction that high speed VoIP ensures easy and affordable phone conversations between people to and from different parts of the world. And the best part is that quite a few VoIP providers exist in the market that offer these solutions at industry leading costs.

As is somewhat evident from the name, in high-speed VoIP, voice and data are routed over high-speed broadband connections. It is not that voice data is traveling at very high speeds. What actually happens is that there is hassle-free transmission of the same, thanks to the "broad" bandwidths in the broadband connections. The flow of data is not impeded by congestion of any kind. The congestion, present with dial-up connections, becomes a thing of the past. This ensures very less time for the transmission of a particular among of data.

High speed VoIP can also be used for making pc-to-pc phone calls. The voice lag in such calls, which was present even a couple of years ago, is now unheard of. With high speed DSL or cable lines having replaced the dial-up connections of yesteryears, the end users of these high speed internet telephony solutions have every reason to enjoy. In such pc-to-pc phone calls, the person at the other end of the line could be using a traditional telephone. However, this would not in any way adversely affect the conversation.
