  What is VoIP

Do I need a broadband internet connection?


 
Technically no but to get the best out of VoIP then yes you do.

Whilst VoIP services will work on dial up modem connections as low as 33k you will experience a poorer quality of service when compared to broadband. The chances are that if you are still using a 33k modem then the rest of your PC is just as antiquated so VoIP won't work anyway. If you must (or simply havn't got a choice) then use a 56k modem (cheap as chips nowadays)

VoIP will work on cable and ADSL broadband connections.
