What is VoIP

VoIP stands for 'Voice over Internet Protocol'. Simply put, it enables you to make telephone calls over the internet, using your broadband connection. How it works.

There are three ways that you can make a telephone call using your internet connection:

  • via an internet (VoIP) telephone, hosted by VoIP4Work
  • via a normal telephone, adapted for internet calls
  • via your computer, using a headset or a microphone and speakers with a 'softphone'.

Why use a hosted internet phone service?

Call charges and line rental

Now that broadband connections are more reliable than ever before, internet telephony is a viable replacement for a traditional landline.

Mass market VoIP services became available in 2004. Since then, many businesses have taken advantage of the low monthly fees, low call charges and free calls between internet telephones.

Replacing your normal landline with a hosted broadband telephone service can reduce your bills by up to 50%.

Let your phone do the hard work

Using a hosted internet phone service from VoIP4Work will not only save you money, it will also help you customise your telecommunications.

The hosted broadband telephone packages offered by VoIP4Work give you all the advanced features of a standard PBX telephone system, but with much more flexibility.

With an internet telephone package from VoIP4Work, you can seamlessly move premises, taking your telephone number with you.

In the event of an emergency, VoIP4Work can arrange to divert your calls to whichever numbers suit you.

You won't have to worry about missing any of your calls when you're dealing with a disaster.

Set yourself free

Take your calls anywhere you need to be, whether that's at home, to a client's office, or even abroad.
