How Net2Phone Direct Works:

Net2Phone Direct users call a toll-free or local number, which connects the call to a local gateway, which digitizes the caller’s voice and puts it onto Net2Phone’s private IP backbone. The system then prompts the user to enter their account number and the telephone number they wish to reach. The call is carried over the Internet to another gateway located close to the recipient’s area, which switches the call onto the local telephone network, and completes the call — all within seconds. Because the call only travels a short distance on the public switched telephone network, the total cost of the call is minimal.
