How is Mediacom phone different than Internet phone service?

There are a few fundamental differences between the two types of service, but the most
important is quality of service and privacy. Mediacom phone does not connect your calls via
the public Internet. Unlike standard VoIP (i.e., Vonage) service, Mediacom phone service
uses a combination of Mediacom's broadband network, Sprint's state-of-the-art digital
network and the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN.) This guarantees the quality of
the network that carries your voice signal and provides a crisp, clear digital voice service.
