Does VOIP Slow Down Internet


New member
As with any other form of internet communication, the speed of the network connection determines whether or not VOIP will hinder internet performance. Users with slow speeds that experience slow load times for webpages may find that VOIP slows down internet performance further with its use, but that isn’t always the case. Broadband internet solutions present no issue for those switching to VOIP.

Users with a strong, fast broadband connection won’t notice any slowdowns in internet performance using VOIP. As a matter of fact, VOIP phone calls use up less bandwidth during a one-hour call than is used by an individual surfing the web for that same period of time. In general, VOIP phone calls also take up less bandwidth than downloading files.
