Difference Between Voice and Realtime?

So as I understand it the backed of voice is still the Photon Cloud. However Voice has a much lower limit than Realtime as far as msg/sec limit is concerned(500 vs 100). Furthermore on the pricing page the paid subscription for voice has less msg/s than the free version, is this an error? What is the advantage of using voice over realtime + custom voip code?

    Hi @greebleoverflowerror,

    We recommend having a separate plan/app for voice and data. The main advantage is having more control over each aspect and being able to have more insight on each stream.
    Photon Voice info on the website will be fixed. Thank you for reporting it.
    We believe 500msg/s for Voice is enough but if you think you need more, feel free to get in touch.
