Few of the disadvantages I find on VoIP are limited features, security and the quality/reliability of calls.

The problem I see is still with power interuption and internet downtime.

If you are using a notebook then you can still make VoIP calls for a few more hours but if your internet is down or getting slow then there is no option left.

The main advantage is still the cost over regular phones. I'm saving about $20 monthly using my Onesuite account over when I use a mobile phone or landline for overseas calls.

When you need to call individuals in far distances land phone is the alternative to use when there is poor internet connection or VOIP service failure.

Thumbs up

One disadvantage of VoIP is that its quality depends solely on the speed of the internet connection. If your connection is sluggish so is your voice quality.

Default VOIP has some disadvantages compared to the regular telephone

VOIP has many disadvantages.

It is heavily dependent on the internet and VOIP software applications.

Viruses are a threat to all software, more to those applications running online. So VOIP is under the threat of viruses.

Also, VOIP has disadvantages with providing the level of quality of service that customers are accustomed to with regular telephone technology. VOIP requires a large amount of data to be compressed and transmitted, then uncompressed and delivered, all in a relatively small amount of time. Problems occur in VOIP conversations when this process takes too long and the callers experience echo or over-talk.

I use ATA on my Onesuite VoIP, do you think it's susceptible to virus too? I haven't heard of any ATA device getting a virus.

Default Viruses

VOIP is dependent on the internet as well as on software applications.

Today the greatest online threat is viruses. So VOIP software can be attacked by viruses.

Hacker's are a threat to all kind's of software.

networks system that has a firewall will usually limit routing VOIP call because some firewalls don't know how to route a VOIP call.
