VoIP service providers include all the necessary technology to enable calls to be made. It is however required that the caller have a high-speed connection to the internet, with at least a minimum of 90kbps which is way beyond the capacity of dial-up internet.

To control a telephone circuit switching necessary to route the calls, businesses typically have to purchase PBX equipment. This can be very expensive and will consume too much space.
