    What is VoIP?

    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that enables voice transmissions to travel over the Internet rather than over traditional phone lines. Speech is converted to packets of voice data which are sent over a broadband internet connection to another phone where the stream of voice data is reassembled into its original form.

    How do you make calls over a VoIP connection?

    The same way you would with an ordinary telephone. The only difference is that you use an IP phone that is plugged into an Ethernet connection instead of a phone jack because the call is made digitally over the internet.
  • Back to Top

    What are the benefits of VoIP?

    VoIP is much less expensive than traditional phone service, especially in cases of heavy long distance or international calling. It is also far more versatile than analog telephony with features such as voicemail-to-email, find-me/follow-me and simultaneous ring that can be managed from an online interface.

  • Back to Top

    Why should I choose a VoIP phone service?

    VoIP is a great way to reduce phone bills and to improve the professional appearance of a small office. Many business VoIP features are included, such as Virtual Receptionists, Dial-by-Name, Virtual Departments and Call Queuing. These features can make the customer facing presence of a small business much more streamlined, professional and efficient.

  • Back to Top

    Do you have ring groups/call groups/virtual departments?

    Yes. We have a Call Groups feature that rings multiple extensions simultaneously.
  • Back to Top

    How many phone lines do I get with your service?

    Instead of having shared phone ‘lines’, each phone is an extension within the phone system that also comes with its own direct phone number. New accounts can start as small as a single extension and grow indefinitely.

  • Back to Top

    How much Internet Bandwidth do I need?

    Each active call with Vocalocity requires approximately 64 kbps up/down of bandwidth from a DSL, Cable, T1, or Fiber broadband connection.

  • Back to Top

    How much technical skill is required to set-up and use the service?

    Virtually none. The IP phones are plug and play and will arrive ready to make and receive calls the instant they’re plugged into a broadband connection, right out of the box. The account settings can easily be administered from our user-friendly online interface.

  • Back to Top

    What charges can I expect each month?

    The popular Vocalocity unlimited national calling plan delivers flat rate VoIP pricing per extension for unlimited calling in the US and Canada. Metered extensions and international calling may incur per minute charges.

    What software do I need to install?

    None. Vocalocity’s service is entirely web-based and can be accessed from any internet browser.

    What is Vocalocity Hosted-PBX?

    Vocalocity PBX replaces traditional on-premise phone systems and analog phone service by hosting the phone system on remote servers and sending calls over the internet using Voice over IP (VoIP) technology. The system is managed from an online interface, and the only equipment required are the IP phones that plug directly into a broadband connection. This saves small businesses money: on the startup cost, on phone system maintenance, and up to 80% on phone bills, as well.
