  What is VoIP

Do I need a computer?


 
For most VoIP services yes you do need a computer, and definately yes for free VoIP services. Only the specialised paid for services negate the need for a computer.

You will still need an internet connection of course but computer-less configurations mean you will need specialised hardware generally in the form of a router. (thats r-ooo-t-er and not r-ow-t-er ;o) please take note!)

Business setups (ie mega money) have very specialised routers and switches to handle VoIP calls, usually across their own private networks
