Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) February 06, 2014
With the mobile workforce expected to grow to 1.3 billion by next year, businesses are deploying cellular devices more than ever and paying a lot through legacy carriers.
Last summer, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development confirmed that Canadians pay some of the highest prices for some of the worst cell phone service in the industrialized world.
While Canadian businesses wait to see how the government will step in to address the need for market competition, they can currently reduce their cell phone costs through VOIP services.
“Many Hosted VOIP providers offer mobile applications that provide a sustainable alternative to high-cost carrier plans,” said Claudio Nespeca, VP Operations & Marketing at Epik Networks, a Toronto-based VOIP provider of phone and internet services. “They transform everyday smartphones and tablets into a portable extension of the office network with a simple VOIP application.”
Instead of sending voice signals through the carrier’s network, voice data can be sent through the web, reducing the call costs and plan restrictions. Calls can be made through a 3G or WiFi connection – and in areas where free WiFi exists, this eliminates those data costs entirely.
Until carriers redevelop their B2B cellular service, mobile VOIP is the best choice for commercial cell phone users. Mobile VOIP apps are adaptable, affordable and accessible to any smartphone—making it possible to reduce cell phone costs for business and address the needs of a growing mobile workforce.
