There are two fundamental differences between common analogue telephony and IP telephony. Traditional analogue telephony uses equipment dedicated to analogue telephony. With IP telephony the public internet is used to make the call. With analogue telephony, a specific capacity is also reserved for a particular call and with IP telephony the capacity that is available is used.

Frequently asked questions about IP telephony
No, it is not free to call with IP telephony. You still have to pay for outgoing traffic that goes out in the public telecommunications network because an operator is the carrier of the traffic.
With IP telephony, you can encrypt the conversation, something you do not do via a regular analog phone. Therefore, IP telephony is considered a safer source to call via.
Provided you have a good connection, the quality is significantly better when you call via IP telephony. The frequency range in the analogue network is more limited, while IP telephony has a larger frequency range. So if you have good technology that can pick up this range, you get a lot better sound quality in your conversation. If you lose connection while calling with IP telephony, the sound tends to get more boxy. While if the same thing happens with analogue telephony, this will make the sound only weaker.
Yes, you can use IP telephony via your mobile phone, then it is called Mobile VoIP. Mobile VoIP is advantageously used with WI-FI in your mobile phone. This is because you will need as good connection as possible so that the quality of your call is not affected. The technology is based on the same idea as regular IP telephony, namely that the conversation goes over the internet.
