VOIP for Business

Post by Hoosier Daddy » Wed Aug 26, 2009 1:29 pm

Anyone here ever used VOIP services for business? I'm looking at helping a recently-retired friend set up a small office at his home. He needs a business phone (one line) with call forwarding and voice mail capabilities, and a separate fax line. There are some attractive plans from Vonage, Time Warner, etc. that offer a whole lot of features for a lot less than Verizon does. My personal experience with Vonage has been good, but that's for a second phone line with the nationwide free long distance. Anyone use internet-based phone lines for business? If so, what is your experience - both good and bad.

It works very well. The lines in and out of the corporate offices that I work all VOIP based and we don't have any problems.

Several of our offices tried it with limited success. However, I blame our IT department, who is probabily tracing my IP address as we speak. I will be getting a visit very soo.... oh, never mind. They are already here. Damn. Red handed and all.
