Four VoIP Phone Options
VOIP is an internet based phone system where every office in your business is equipped with a handset and a unique extension or number. Unlike the traditional 4-line system, routing of each call is via the internet.
With one internet connection, VOIP comfortably supports an unlimited number of phone extensions. This makes it a better option since it significantly reduces the setup and maintenance costs. Below are the four best VOIP options.
