What are some of the disadvantages of VOIP?

Voip quality is affected by the speed and latency of your internet connection. Some faxes aren't compatible with specific VOIP implementations. VOIP requires electrical power in order to work.

Even though I do not have a VOIP phone line at home, I have observed problems when trying to contact VOIP numbers. Typical problems are long times for establishing the connection, including a total failure to build up the connection at all. Also, i often had low quality of transmitted speach, to the point of being unable to understand anything
