In order to try to simplify what VoIP (Voice over internet protocol) really is, let's go back to the time when people started using the Internet. As a free and open network that allowed people to share information with each other, the Internet was mainly used for transmitting static information from a web page. At that time, to make a call, a user would have to be connected to a traditional phone provider - which meant copper cables, limited access points, limited functionalities, and high rates. However, after some time, it became clear that instead of just passing static information, the Internet could be used to make calls. And that's where VoIP comes in, allowing anyone who is connected to a good a service provider, such as Othos Telecom, whether on their phones, mobile, laptop or desktop, to make a call using the Internet.
