What is a Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP?

Rather than using traditional, analog phone lines, a VoIP utilizes your computer network, and the Internet, to send packets of voice data. With VoIP, phone calls are digitized and transmitted the same way as e-mail, web pages or network data – offering feature-rich services at lower costs.
