Differences Between Wi-Fi Calling and Internet Protocol


VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) and VoWiFi (Wi-Fi Calling) are two transformative technologies that have reshaped the way we communicate. In this blog, we will explore the differences between VoIP and VoWiFi and highlight their advantages and applications, including when traveling to the US.


Wi-Fi versus Internet

The first key to understanding the differences between Wi-Fi calling and internet protocol is knowing what Wi-Fi is in comparison to the Internet.

Many people don’t realize, but there is a difference between the two. We on a daily basis use these words interchangeably when in fact they shouldn’t be.

A way to think about their difference is that Wi-Fi is like a facility that gains people access to wireless Internet connection within its delivery distance of the facility.

The Internet, on the other hand, is the language used to communicate from device to device. The Internet is the big picture, and Wi-Fi is a way to access the Internet.

Pros and Cons

It can be confusing understanding the difference between these two means of communication. Here are the basics laid out. VoIP can be used with any device. Whether it be your laptop, tablet, or cellphone, it can connect without a data network. VoIP utilizes the internet to transmit voice calls, converting analog voice signals into digital data packets that travel over IP networks. In layman’s terms, it allows users to make calls from anywhere with a stable internet connection, providing global connectivity and flexibility. When traveling to the US, VoIP can be an excellent choice for international calling, as it allows you to make cost-effective calls using your internet connection.

On the other hand, VoWiFi leverages Wi-Fi networks for voice calls. Wi-Fi calling can only be done on a cellular device since it utilizes its data network. It allows users to make and receive calls using their Wi-Fi connection instead of relying solely on cellular networks. This means you can use a Wi-Fi connection when out and about like at a coffee shop or a grocery store to make calls.

When traveling to the US, VoWiFi can be particularly useful in areas with weak cellular coverage or to avoid international roaming charges. You can simply connect to a Wi-Fi network and enjoy seamless voice calls without any additional costs.

In both cases, VoIP and VoWiFi offer a convenient and cost-effective solution for staying connected while traveling to the US. They provide alternatives to traditional phone calls, allowing you to communicate with friends, family, and colleagues without worrying about expensive roaming charges.

Selecting What Is Best For You

Whether you choose VoIP or VoWiFi, these technologies offer reliable and convenient options for communication when traveling to the US. They enable you to make calls, stay connected, and save on roaming fees. Embrace the power of VoIP and VoWiFi and enjoy seamless communication during your travels across the US. Either decision you make are great options to save and have a great time during your travels while you are at it!
