New technology called Voice Over Internet Protocol means that the voice is digitally sampled at the phone, turned into small "packs" of data that look much like packets containing other things like webpages or downloaded MP3s and sent over the Internet. The other end of the call receives these packs and reconcribes them back into a sound signal that we can hear.
This may not sound like an important development, … Read More
