Calls to China don't have to cost the same as a flight to China. With most international rates with traditional telephone providers at skyhigh prices, technology like VoIP keeps phone calls to China cheap. China is an important business partner to many companies in the US, with many trade agreements, innovative business partnership, and high volume of international supply and demand. It's important to stay connected with international neighbors, but at a cheap cost and with reliable service. This is why so many companies are choosing to go with VoIP telephone service.
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is an Internet technology that allows phone calls to take place over the Internet instead of the traditional method of making phone calls over landlines or cellular towers. The Internet is expansive enough and cheap enough that companies find great value in switching to VoIP service for its cheap international calling capabilities, as well as its low rates on calling throughout the US.
In order to stay at the forefront of international business, companies need to stay connected with the top business players in the world, including the many companies based out of China. It's too important not to stay connected on a global scale. In honor of cheap international calling, The Digest announces the top 4 business VoIP providers for making cheap international calls to China:
VoIP.com is a great choice for companies that make routine calls to China. VoIP.com offers the option of international area codes in places such as China. With an international area code, all inbound and outbound calls to that area become cheap local calls. This is helpful not only to the US businesses calling China, but it is also helpful for Chinese businesses and customers looking for cheap calling to the US. VoIP.com also offers a feature for direct calling to international numbers. Direct calling saves a company from dialing access codes numbers to reach an international number.
RingCentral offers one of the lowest rates for customers calling China. Whether the phone call is going to a Chinese landline or a Chinese mobile number, the price remains as cheap as $0.04/minute. This is an excellent price to pay for a strong business connection with China. For pennies a minute instead of thousands of dollars each year, a business can flourish in a business partnership with China using RingCentral.
Sometimes a business call to the old brick and mortar building just doesn't cut it. That's why Vocalocity's mobile China international feature is such a useful option. Vocalocity already has cheap international rates, with the rate to a Chinese landline at only $0.05/minute. However, Vocalocity offers an even better deal when calling a Chinese mobile number at the rate of $0.03/minute. That's an hour phone call to a mobile phone in China for only $1.80. These is a great option for dealing with businesses on the go, or with remote business partners who work from home or don't use an office at all. International mobile VoIP calling is the next logical step in international business, and with Vocalocity, this step remains affordable.
