Difference Between Voice Lines & VoIPLet’s start with the basics.
Voice lines are your traditional landlines. You can have up to 10 lines with your Windstream business phone, along with unlimited long distance calling. Voice lines also include traditional features, such as caller ID, call forwarding and call waiting.
Think of VoIP, like OfficeSuite®, as a second generation voice line. OfficeSuite® is a 100 percent cloud-based phone system that typically has more advanced features you can’t get on a traditional landline, such as mobile twinning — when calls are sent to your office and mobile phones simultaneously — and hot desking — when you can use any phone in the office.
Which is Right for your Business?Consider the day-to-day operations of your small business and what you are trying to achieve.
Are You Worried About Price?
VoIP is generally cheaper than a traditional landline, but it is obviously dependent on your internet. That means that you need the bandwidth to support it, along with your small business’ other internet-based needs.
