Internettelefonie ist in vielen Haushalten Trend

You have it in your hand – making calls on your smartphone over the Internet

Internet telephony allows you to make phone calls over your Internet connection. The advantage: an analogue ISDN connection is not needed for this. At the same time, you can take advantage of other features, such as video calls – and they work even with older smartphone models.

Most of us use messenger apps to send messages, such as WhatsApp or Signal. They can also be used to make calls – conveniently over the Internet. Internet telephony is so simple: either download one of many Internet telephony apps, such as Skype or Viber, or open a messenger app already installed on your smartphone. Often there will be a small handset in your contacts that you can click on – and you can simply make a call. Your phone call will then no longer be made through a fixed line network, but simply over the Internet. You don't need to worry about a slow Internet connection because the bandwidth is low. The connection is as secure as usual and the usage is covered by your flat rate Internet tariff and the high-speed volume included.

Important: Internet telephony, whether at home or on the move, requires an Internet-enabled smartphone and a constant Internet connection. Here  at Ortel you will find the right home Internet package if you don't have one yet.

Step 1: Visit the Apple Store or Google Play Store

Step 3: Open the app and register / log in if necessary

Step 4: Click on the handset icon and simply make a call
