How does VoIP work?

VoIP involves converting the spoken word into a digital data stream and sending this via a data link to a VoIP service provider such as Webcall. The VoIP service provider interconnects with a number of local and international telecommunications providers such as Telkom and MTN. The interconnect allows for 2 way communication. Whilst the principles of VoIP are simple and well established, there are many technical challenges to providing a VOIP service.
