Chapter 1. How Internet Telephone Calls ... > VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)

1.2. VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)

Let me say, first off, that VoIP is a terrible choice for an acronym, which degrades the technology and benefits provided. If it was called it CRAP (Conversation Remote Access Protocol), at least it would be funny and middle school boys would get a big laugh. But we're saddled with VoIP (say "toy: with an ending "p" then replace the "t" with a "v"), a graceless sound that calls to mind a love-starved Amazonian parrot's mating call.


Note:

Name Chain

Internet Telephony = VoIP = digital phone conversations = less dependence on the traditional telephone companies = savings and more features.
