VOIP being a seemingly new technology has had some negative connotations around it. Especially in the beginning when this technology was still developing. People that are familiar with VOIP will recognise that 087 numbers are VOIP only numbers. If they have had a bad experience with VOIP then they will link it to this. Geographical numbers are sometimes seen as more ‘stable’ or ‘reliable’. The answer to this question depends very much on individuals’ experience with VOIP.
