    I have recently received a telemarketing phone call from a lady who stated she works for Pulse Telecom, a new phone company on the market. She also said they have low rates to call Europe and a very good connection with VOIP, by internet. I wonder what is VOIP and if I can use my Mac Desktop to call Europe via VOIP?
    Thank you.

    VOIP is voice over IP, using your internet connection to place calls. Calls are usually cheaper than going through a regular phone company.

    Actually any network connection, so long as the voice termination point transfers it into the phone system.
