VoIP - Fast, Reliable Internet for Rural NZ - Scorch
VoIP Services
Bg img

VoIP stands for “Voice over Internet Protocol”, which is a technology that allows you to make phone calls using your broadband connection instead of your conventional copper line phone service.
With VoIP services you get cheaper line rental, cheaper calling rates and access to calling features.

VoIP can be added to virtually any broadband connection with suitable signal and connectivity, all you need is a VoIP provider account and a VoIP Adapter (also known as an ATA device), in some cases what you already have may be suitable otherwise we have a range of VoIP compatible hardware that we provide depending on your connection type and requirements.

We assist your signup by gathering your information, helping you decide which VoIP Adapter is best suited and then conveying all the details to our preferred VoIP partner for your account creation. From here we courier out the configured VoIP adapter to you, plugging it in is very simple but we’ll talk you through that too.
