Simply put, VoIP is a phone service delivered over the internet. Any telephony solution that allows you to make calls over the internet, instead of through the traditional means of wires and handsets, is referred to as a VoIP service. This VoIP technology converts your voice into a digital signal, allowing you to make a call directly from a computer, a VoIP phone, or other data-driven devices such as tablets and mobile devices. You may also hear it referred to as IP telephony, internet telephony, broadband telephony, or broadband phone service. Some examples of the best-known VoIP solutions include WhatsApp Calling, Skype and many more. What makes VoIP so widespread is because of the accessibility it provides; you can make calls and receive calls from anywhere in the world without needing international roaming. All of this is done because of the technology used which makes these calls as easy as sending a message on social media.
Prior to 2005, Telkom which was the major fixed-line operator for telephony, controlled the market in South Africa. Since then, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), the country’s communications regulatory body, changed the regulation opening up the market to service providers allowing them to inter-connect. There are now 1000’s of service providers in South Africa who are licensed to provide VoIP solutions. With this competition the fees for a VoIP solution have seen positive declines in the rates for the customer. This is great news for the consumer and ensures healthy competition.
