One of my favorite scenes from the movie Almost Famous is when he tries to send his pages to Rolling Stone Magazine and it says it only takes 18 minutes a page. Fax machines may have had their heyday and might be thought of as a bygone era the way we think of dialup. But faxing has entered the digital age by way of V1 VoIP’s fax to email service.
V1 VoIP fax to email service brings the fax from 90s has-been and into modern technology practice. Resellers report that customers are shockingly using faxing more than they ever thought they would and all while replacing another phone line they needed to keep.
When it comes to businesses and faxing, it conjures up memories of a huge, bulky device that they used maybe once in a while, and made loud annoying sounds. As soon as emails rolled around, fax machines were rapidly replaced as the fastest way to transmit documents and materials.

Old faxes used your telephone number and line. V1 VoIP fax uses your Internet connection to send data. The big difference is that V1 VoIP faxes are digital, while the traditional system, based on the PSTN (public switched telephone network), is an analog system. This means that a VoIP reseller sends your data using binary, while the PSTN sends data using electronic pulses.
Using V1 VoIP to send faxes is more cost effective to send data using binary because binary can be sent over a farther distance without needing to stop at an intermediary location, while analog data needs to hop between many intermediate locations. Each stop that analog data makes costs you extra money. And that’s how a V1 VoIP fax provider stays so consistently cheap: V1 VoIP fax has lower overhead.
