VoIP defined phone internet service

Megan from Ashtabula asks:

What is VoIP, exactly?

That’s an easy one, Megan!

In addition to being fun to say (go on, try it!), VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. It’s a method for sending voice over the Internet using TCP/IP [1] packets. You may have heard of VoIP phone service, a way of running phone service through your net connection rather than the phone lines.
