VoIP's broadband Bottleneck
Broadband Net-phoning services pushing aggressive expansion plans are discovering a harsh reality: Some residential Internet service providers in the United States currently can't guarantee the bandwidth required to handle calls effectively.
AT&T Vice President Kathy Martine said she learned that lesson the hard way during recent trials of the company's
Call Vantage Net-phoning plan, which it hopes to introduce in 100 markets this year. Some customers' broadband connections just weren't good enough to provide "AT&T-like" quality, she said. So the company was forced to help the broadband providers fix their connections.
Now AT&T Labs is "doing a lot of statistical modeling and analysis on that so we can, in fact, prove where the problems are in the future," Martine said recently. "But the reality is, it's only as good as the broadband connection to your home.
broadband Adopter Until recently your Broadband Internet connection will only be used for data communications, i.e. sharing an Internet connection, files or printer resources. It is now possible to make telephone calls over your Broadband connection using a special telephony broadband device
and a related service provider. VoIP stands for 'Voice over IP', which in real terms means to make telephone calls over the
Internet. Internet Protocol is a method by which data is sent from one device (e.g. computer or telephone) to another over the Internet. Each device connected to the Internet has at least one IP address that uniquely identifies it from all the other devices on the Internet. An IP address can be equated to a telephone number with an area code and a unique number.

broadband Telephony IP Telephony or Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) has been a popular tech news item lately. It is a service that allows users to connect to the telephone system with their broadband Internet connections called VOIP Broadband Telephone. With a few companies already offering the VOIP Broadband Telephone service, the big telecommunications companies are now starting to get involved. Vonage is a New Jersey based company that has been in the VoIP business for over two years.
VoIP is a relatively easy concept to understand. The VOIP Broadband Telephone system uses a device to turn an analog voice communication made on a regular telephone to a digital signal that can be transmitted over the internet. Vonage has a PoP (Point of Presence) with telephone companies throughout the U.S. where that digital telephone call is forwarded on to the local phone systems and turned back into an analog transmission. All of this takes milliseconds to do.

The most you should pay is $24.99 and some Voip providers charge only $19.99 a month. This VOIP broadband phone service includes local and long distance in the U.S. and Canada. Most VOIP providers offer for additional money international service. Another plus to VOIP phone service is the ability to offer member to member calling with no additional charges.
VoIP broadband Phone Services VoIP broadband phones are now available to those who want phone service at a rate lower than what they are currently paying. To obtain VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephone service, one must have a DSL or a cable Internet connection and an accelerator box connection. Service can, indeed, cost less than a landline phone service, but how much less depends upon the features the consumer chooses to include. VoIP calling can sometimes be provided by an Internet provider, and when they are, the consumer will likely get a better deal than using an outside subscriber. Since VoIP broadband phone services use the Internet as the vehicle for moving a call to its destination, the process is simpler than landline phone service, and so they can charge less. With a landline phone, there is an origination fee by the telephone company where the call begins, and a termination fee by the telephone company where the call ends. Since the caller is using his or her Internet line, there is just the termination fee at the other end. Hence, the cost is lower.
broadband Phones There are several service providers who now offer Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) / Broadband Phone service to their customers. This service is attractive to people because they can now have voice service using their Internet Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) connection, and no longer need a dedicated telephone line to make phone calls. They also are provided with long distance service at no charge. Given the attractiveness of this service, people may not stop to think about drawbacks to the service, such as the fact that Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) may not work for VoIP/Broadband phones.
Citizens have come to rely on E9-1-1 service, and have an expectation that this service will be available from any phone.
