VoIP differs from Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) in the way that it transmits information. POTS uses a single copper line which gets connected from user to user for the entirety of the call. For the duration of the call, other users will be unable to use that stretch of wire, hence the remarkably high costs of long-distance calls.
VoIP takes a much more efficient approach when it comes to transferring data. Instead of using a line indefinitely, it only sends out information when it needs to. If nobody is speaking then the line is not used. A VoIP phone will sample your voice as you speak, and then package these samples into packets and send them to their destination to be reassembled. The benefit is that it allows many packets from different calls to travel along the same lines, in turn reducing the cost of infrastructure for both you and your provider.
