How does a cap interfere with VoIP?

third party does impact the cap, However VOIP also does not use that much bandwidth. you can get crystal clear calls on minimal bandwidth usage.

odds are you would have to be on the phone nonstop for the whole month to equal a day of streaming high quality video.

True, but it all adds up. A few hours of Netflix, a few hours talking on the phone, downloading some games of PSN/XBOX, backing up to "the cloud", etc and soon you're past your cap.

My SIP setup streams @11 kbps using the open source Speex speech codec. 11kbpsx2 with maybe 2 overhead=24 kbps=3KB/sec. Unlike Skype(peer to peer), it hardly uses any bandwidth when idle. They can't kill VOIP with caps, even in mobile.
