VOIP has become increasing popular in recent years. VOIP uses an internet connection to transmit voices from one user to the other and allow conversations to take place as they do over a telephone. This was originally achieved by the use of a microphone and speakers on a computer, but now can be done using VOIP phones (much like telephones) or telephone adapters, meaning users can use their existing telephones. The key to VOIP s popularity is the cost savings that are possible. The technology is much cheaper to run than landline telephones, meaning providers are able to charge their customers less. The quality, which was previously poor, is improving, meaning the previous disadvantages are often not relevant. This is dependent on the internet connection and the quality of the provider. VOIP over mobile (cell) phones is also beginning to become very popular. There are numerous VOIP applications available that can be used with certain phones. Mobile networks are to some degree reluctant to allow the use of VOIP over their networks though, as it can lead to a loss of revenue if customers use this cheaper option. Many have at some point banned its use. More networks are now allowing this though, as they see a trend and know it could be a mistake to ignore it. They are likely to try to exploit this themselves by coming up with their own VOIP technology. There is no advantage in them resisting the future as it will only work against them in the long run. Mobile operators need to keep moving forward to keep up and stay in business. Smartphone's have coming onto the market in recent times. This allows users to use their mobile phone for a large number of purposes. I-phone’s from Apple was in many ways the start of a new era, with it able to perform so many more functions than anything that preceded it. They haven't yet created a VOIP application but they are likely to in the near future. Mobile Phone technology has grown dramatically in the last fifteen years. Originally it was just a mobile version of the landline telephone, allowing users to make and receive calls on the move. This then developed to include text messaging, and has continues to develop since. People can perform all sorts of tasks using their mobile phone, and they often include diaries, cameras and video cameras. In recent years using the Internet has also become possible, and this has meant the technology for mobile VOIP is possible. This could become one of the new battlegrounds for providers.
