Does VoIP Slow Down My Business Internet?

Michael Martin

The short answer is no. But I bet you want to know why, or at least have facts to back up the claim that VOIP doesn't slow down your business Internet. VOIP, like anything else connected to the Internet, needs the ability to exchange packets of data between two locations, in real time. Some serious bandwidth hogs are Netflix, YouTube, or any sort of video streaming service as those require large amounts of available bandwidth because the files are larger. For example, a video that is 3.2gb requires more bandwidth (more 'room' to travel) to stream at 1080p than a video that is 2.8gp and is streaming at 720p. VoIP works in very much the same way. Depending on the voice quality, there are more bytes to be sent (negligible compared to video, though). VOIP is at a point where even the highest quality voice has a negligible impact on your internet speed.

It is common knowledge that the Internet is irreplaceable, but there is so much more than just checking your emails or looking at cat pictures. Why does that matter? What else is there? Read on to find out.

5 Ways VOIP Systems Can Save Your Company Money

Pete Kraehmer

First, what is VOIP? It’s very simple. VOIP is an acronym for Voice Over Internet Protocol, which means that you use the Internet for phone calls, rather than a telephone line. This eliminates the need for carrier phone lines.
