    residential home phone keypadWhat is Residential VoIP?

    Residential VoIP is an Internet-based voice service for your home.

    Residential Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a telephone service that utilizes your home internet connection to route calls. Instead of using the traditional copper wires associated with a Plain Old Telephone System (POTS), VoIP converts your voice into data packets, sends them over the Internet, and reassembles them into high-quality audio on the other end.

    With residential VoIP, you can even use your existing telephone to make and receive calls. Ask if your residential provider offers a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Then, all you need is an Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) to connect your phone to the router, Ethernet hub, or switch to start making low-cost calls. Select providers will offer included equipment free of charge or allow you to rent it for a nominal fee.

    A big advantage to choosing a residential VoIP system is its ease of use. GTI  offer plug-and-play systems that can be setup within minutes.  Additionally, these residential service offer support in the form of phone, chat, and online knowledge bases so that you have access to all information and multiple troubleshooting options.

    How Do I Know If My Internet is VoIP Capable?residential home green icon

    Run a speed test to see if your broadband connection is qualified for a residential VoIP service.

    The most important factor when it comes to the quality of your residential VoIP is your Internet speed. Your broadband speed is important because it will determine whether or not you are qualified for a VoIP service. A poor broadband connection will result in a low-quality call. With a bad connection, you will be affected by things like jitter, packet loss, and bad voice quality. It is important that you test your broadband connection ahead of time. You can test your connection with our Speed Test to see whether or not your setup is VoIP-capable.

    Typically, a broadband connection will show 600 kbps for the upload stream and 5000 kbps on the download stream. It is standard for your upload speed to be less than your download speed. The upload speed is also the limiting factor and determines if you are capable of making VoIP phone calls.

    Test your internet speed with our innovative Speed Test. Be sure to use this test while you are hardwired, and not while using a WiFi connection, in order to get a more accurate reading.

    Unfortunately, if your connection isn’t strong enough, you will need to sign up for a faster internet service before you can begin shopping and comparing VoIP providers.

    calling long distance with VoIPDo I have the Equipment that Residential VoIP Requires?

    Residential VoIP needs an existing Internet connection and a VoIP-capable phone to properly function. In addition to making sure that you have the proper internet speed, you need to check the equipment your VoIP provider requires. Compare providers based on the equipment they provide and require: you can find these details (which change frequently) on their websites.

    The common pieces of equipment that a VoIP service requires includes one of the following:

     

    A softphone is a type of software provided by the VoIP company that is used to make calls. An ATA enables your current phone to be used with VOIP and is most commonly used when you BYOD (if your provider offers it). An IP phone is a phone that you can directly plug into the internet to make phone calls.  Additionally, some residential VoIP providers offer either free equipment or a BYOD option. Check with your provider for specifics.  Now that you have a basic understanding of Residential VoIP, browse through some of our select providers in the table above.
