Cost Per User

As you can see, the size of your business can make all the difference when it comes to setting up your business phone service. But there are even more options that can affect your cost, including the type of phone system you decided to go with.

Type of Phone Systems


Voice over IP (VoIP) solution gives you the opportunity to host all your voice communications from your internet service. For example, Nextiva’s VoIP for small business is a unified communication solution that includes everything from video conferencing to virtual faxing making and more. And it doesn’t require an additional hard-wired installation like your traditional landline.


Most of us know what a landline is. That hardwired phone we used to have in our homes or offices. While not obsolete, landlines are usually much more costly, require a telephone line, and can be time-consuming to install.

Virtual Phone System

A Virtual Phone System is an internet-based phone service that requires a fixed telephone line. That one line is funneled to your computer screen where all of the features and controls are then available to you.

Now that you have a better idea of what business phone systems are available to you let’s dive into the good stuff.
