ConnectMyPhone Tip: Although all digital phone services are VoIP and vice versa, the term digital phone service is usually reserved for services offered by cable companies that transport voice data over private, managed networks. The use of a managed, private network means that you don't experience the call quality issues and delays that have been associated with VoIP. While choosing a home phone service, go back over your past call logs. Do you mostly speak at home with friends, who will forgive you if you have an occasional delay or call quality issue? If so, a lowered cost public Internet VoIP service may be adequate. If you receive business or other critical calls at home, a cable telephone service or analog telephone service would be more suitable.
