BT Price Increase

Oh Dear. BT Price Increase proves there is no better time to change to SIP, or in English Internet connected telephone services.

Internet telephony can guarantee lower charges, bundles call costs and a step up in technology and features there is no better time.

Things you need to be aware of:

  • Current contracted terms with BT
  • Compatibility with current telephone system – don’t throw the baby out with the bath water and replace a perfectly serviceable system.
  • Believe the hype about poor reliability from Internet voice, VoIP – It is more reliable and location agnostic.
  • Dedicated Broadband is required – Nope, not the case. A good broadband connection, Fibre as an example, then that is adequate for Data and Voice.

Switching to an Internet based telephone system, either on premise or Cloud is a simple exercise, mainly because your provider will do all of the work.

What to look for!

Hosted / Cloud providers.

I believe paying by the extension can be a costly exercise, more relevant if you are small and plan to grow. Far better to pay for a service with unlimited extension capability and buy or rent the handsets of your choice. If you can avoid proprietary or single manufacturer suppliers, you will get caught in a trap of buying one make or model of telephone.

On premise installation

The requirements are not dissimilar to a Cloud service. A negative to an on premise installation is that inbound and outbound calls are reliant upon the business broadband being active. No Broadband = No Calls. Again all below are true.
