The surge of US businesses switching over to Voice over Internet Protocol, or simply “VoIP”, telephone systems has resulted in a growing number of VoIP service providers as well. Deciding between the multitude of different service plans and features available on the growing market can be a time-consuming and frustrating process. The telecom experts at Voxilla.com have conducted a nationwide comparison of reviews, prices, and features of business VoIP telephone service providers, to announce their “Seven Best Business VoIP Phone Service Providers.”
VoIP.com business telephone VoIP service starts at the low price of $17.95 per month per user and includes unlimited calling within the US and Canada, and boasts US-based customer service and support. Lines and extensions can also be managed and altered via the easy-to-use online web portal. If a company has more than 10 users they can sometimes negotiate special rates.The same is true if a company is willing to agree to a longer service contract with VoIP.com

As with many other providers the monthly service rates are based on the number of users on the account, but most service providers will negotiate the monthly or annual cost as long as they think the account may increase in the future, and 8x8 is no exception.
With the number of providers growing as quickly as the demand for business VoIP telephone service, it’s become a “buyers market” where price wars are in full effect.Equally important however, is that a company consider more than one provider to get the best deal, based on the features that best suit the company’s needs. When considering any provider be sure to ask for additional perks like leased hardware, IP phones or additional months of service for no charge. Most service providers are willing to “play ball.”
