Yes, VoIP can be used internationally. In fact, many businesses and homes choose to use VoIP specifically because they make so many international calls.

When using VoIP to make phone calls, the call is placed over the internet instead of the traditional Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) or landline.

Using VoIP to call internationally is popular for a number of reasons, not least because of the savings it can make for the company.

Let’s have a look at how VoIP can be fantastic for making international calls.

Cheaper Than Phone Lines

This is one of the major benefits of using VoIP to call internationally.

Because calls are routed over the internet, they are so much cheaper than using traditional phone lines.

Imagine the savings an organisation could make if they have a room full of telesales operators calling overseas using VoIP instead of traditional lines.

You can even use a mobile phone with VoIP to make or receive calls from abroad without racking up huge costs.

As Easy As Using Phone Lines

Using VoIP to call internationally is no more difficult or complicated than using an old fashioned phone.

You can also make a call from your mobile phone, as normal, without it being complicated.

As usual, you just dial using the international dialling prefix, the country code, the area code, and the number. The systems handle the rest.

You can do this using either the traditional phone handset that is connected to a VoIP router or over the computer using a headset.

High Quality Calls

Anyone who remembers using old fashioned phone lines to call internationally will remember the awful sound quality. You could almost hear how far away the other person was across a crackly, echoey line.

Using VoIP to call internationally removes that problem.

Because the calls are routed over the internet, it doesn’t matter where in the world you are calling; the quality will be as good as if they were across the road.

Unlocking The World To Your Business

The global Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business. No longer are people as willing, or able to jump on a plane and do business in other countries.

Not only is this hindered by social distancing but also the cost is too much for many businesses.

This is where VoIP comes into its own.

Being able to quickly, securely, and cheaply work with people outside the UK opens businesses up to a literal world of opportunities. Have a look here at how VoIP can open the world up to your business.

All The Regular Benefits of VoIP

When you use VoIP to call internationally you still get all the benefits of using VoIP domestically.

The calls made to international numbers can still go on your wallboard, showing calls made, duration, and even by which department or person. This is a great advantage for assessing the efficacy of your call centre.

You can still have call recording, Barge, and Whisper. Barge is where you can listen in on a colleague’s phone call and interrupt if you need to. It is perfect for training.

The Whisper function lets you listen in to your colleague’s call and speak directly to them without the other person knowing you are there. This is also great for training or for supporting colleagues through a difficult conversation.
