HOW IT WORKSMany different forms of Internet telephony exist. Some systems, such as Skype, the popular free download, work only between two computers using particular software. Triton's Voice service allows anyone with a broadband connection to use their existing telephone hardware or their computer, if they want, to call any other phone in the world, whether that phone is on the same service or not.
The one thing all VoIP solutions have in common is that they take your voice and convert it into data packets that are then routed over the Net just like e-mail. For calls to a standard telephone, the data call obviously has to connect to the public phone network at some point; Internet phone services provide this connection seamlessly.
Internet phone serviceIn the most flexible form of VoIP, Internet technology replaces the connection between the telephone and the phone company. You plug an ordinary telephone into an adapter that connects to your broadband setup. Your call is routed over the Web to a VoIP service provider. This provider connects your calls to the telephone system. If the person you are calling is also a user of the same Internet calling system, the call will never touch the phone system at all.
NOTE: In order to maintain high quality voice service over the Internet, Triton Voice's service needs a high-speed Internet connection. Triton Voice service WILL NOT work with dialup or accelerated dialup service.
