VoIP phone systems are an alternative to traditional telecommunications. Businesses today are moving to VoIP phone systems to save money on long distance usage, but there are also many other benefits. These include being able to have your own business phone number, reduced monthly phone bills through lower long distance usage, and cheaper equipment costs because you are not paying for installation and maintenance costs.
An average VoIP phone system costs between $20 and $40 per line per month. You might be able to reduce your costs depending on your number of users, commitment, and features. A decent IP phone starts at $70, but they can also be leased for as low as a few dollars each month.
The cost of a VoIP phone system is based on the following:
• Cost of the phone system
• Cost of the equipment
• Cost of the service
• Any up-front costs that may occur with the setup
• Any reimbursements that may be available in the future
• The amount of lines in the system
