I`ve been using a phone system that uses VOIP (voice over internet) and it is incredible! I`ve never had a problem with it, but also, it saves me so much time and money! I`m a web programmer in Canada and my graphic design artist is based out of Virginia -- with this service we can call each other back and forth almost free! Not to mention our clients come from all over North America, so I`m able to offer them an 1-800 number for a fraction of the cost!
I won`t got into all the details (like sending and receiving faxes, plans that start at 9.95/month for 1000 minutes of local and long distance, 800 and local numbers) because their website does a much better job! (It`s got audio and video clips to explain everything)...
Check it out. My entire company phone plan is $9.95 per month including fax, long-distance, company directory (extensions), fully customizable, and I can even call out from the number! It really is incredible.
Anyway, check it out. It`s called gotvmail (just click the link).
