Digicel has moved to block VOIP services from using its network with immediate effect. Digicel in a news release stated that unlicensed VOIP operators use telecom networks to deliver their services, but do not pay the requisite fee. As expected the news has not been greeted well by some of its customers who use VOIP apps like Viber to make free voice and even video calls over the internet.
What is VOIP?
Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a methodology and group of technologies for the delivery of voice communications and multimedia sessions over Internet Protocol (IP) networks, such as the Internet. VOIP has proved popular in recent years as mobile internet speeds have increased and the capabilities of phones improved to include cameras, faster processors and applications. VOIP apps are some of the most popular applications in terms of downloads and usage by smartphone users.
