How does BELD’s phone service work?

Using voice over Internet, phone calls are passed over the BELD network to an Internet Protocol (IP) phone switch, and then to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). The call itself is broken into digital packets for transmission and put back together at the other end. Management of this transmission and timing for arrival of the packets and reassembly is the key to successful voice over Internet. Compression and transmission techniques and the continual increase in bandwidth are rapidly removing quality as an issue for digital callings.

Since we do not offer a traditional landline phone service, we do not use your internal phone wiring—we will connect your wireless base phone system directly to our EMTA modem. We also do not install any type of internal wiring in the home.
