What is an IP-PBX?
An IP PBX is an IP enabled telephone switching system which allows the user to switch from local analogue lines to VoIP services. IP PBXs differ from conventional PBXs, with the ability to voice and data across one line. So with an IP-PBX system, users can benefit from both traditional and VoIP voice calling, as well as internet access all on one line.
Can VoIP services be used over mobile broadband?
In some cases it is possible, though some networks do block VoIP access. For those that do allow VoIP it should be noted that where mobile broadband signal is low, you may experience significant latency when talking.
How fast does my internet connection need to be to fully benefit from VoIP calling?
As with all online services; the faster your connection, the better. Although the average DSL or cable connection is usually enough to benefit from decent quality VoIP calls.
