VoIP achieves better functioning communication while reducing phone costs, providing a more efficient communication experience for your business.
How is the call quality of a VoIP phone?
Your call quality depends on the quality of your internet.
If you have high-speed internet, your call quality will improve significantly due to VoIP’s state-of-the-art HD voice technology.
What Should I Look for In A Cloud Communications System?
With VoIP, you should adjust your cloud communications according to your number of employees and your business’s required features. Factors you should consider when changing your cloud communications are:
- Do you want to pay your phone costs through contract or month-to-month?
- Do you want to be able to contact customer support during business hours?
- What’s the coverage area of your plan? Does your carrier cover your area?

How Many Calls Can I Make at A Time?
You can make unlimited calls anytime your want depending on the user and device volume. The standard VoIP phone provides three calls simultaneously, but that also depends on the callers’ type of equipment.
Unlike traditional phone systems, VoIP users will never face busy signals or line rollovers. Regardless of how many phones you use, VoIP provides a more efficient user experience.
Are There Limitations to Using a VoIP Phone?
No. Besides a one-call-placed-per-second rule to prevent robocalls, VoIP eradicates inefficiency from your phone call experience.
However, you’ll want to be sure your internet connection is fast and reliable. Your call quality relies on your internet service quality, so good internet is essential to your call success.
Will I Lose Business Features from Landlines with VoIP?
No. Your features will remain intact, and VoIP can support any upgrades you want to add in the future.
Do I Need My Computer to Be Online to Make A Call?
You only need your computer online if you use a VoIP app. Otherwise, your computer does not need to be online to make calls. If you have internet access, you can make calls.
