I contacted Fortis on one of our employee’s recommendation, and David worked with our team to find the right solution, at the right price. Mike Duarte, our account manager, has been great in helping us get everything set up, and has been completely responsive to our questions.

Business VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is the modern day replacement for legacy, in-house phone systems that connect to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) -- a.k.a. landline service. With VoIP, voice traffic travels back and forth through a company’s network and the internet, alongside data and video traffic.
Because VoIP service is cloud-based, companies that use VoIP do not need to worry about upgrades or about reaching the phone line or user capacity of an in-house system. Business VoIP service can scale from one user to tens of thousands of users.
The published based price for VoIP service ranges from $20 to $35 per user per month, depending on the service provider. Additional costs that may or may not be included in the base price are: dedicated user phone numbers (DIDs); FCC regulatory fees; the Universal Service Fund Recovery Fee; and the Enhanced 911 Service Fee. There is also a one-time charge for the IP telephones themselves, which can range from $80 to $500.
It depends. For most small businesses -- when all costs and benefits have been considered -- VoIP is more economical than landline service. For large businesses that have made a significant investment in an in-house PBX, VoIP may be less economical in the short term.
Popular business VoIP brands include RingCentral, 8x8, Ooma and Vonage. Most VoIP providers offer a high quality of technical service. All providers use industry standard telephone hardware. What makes one company better than another comes down to factors such as customer service, advice, training and the availability of specific features.
Some VoIP systems have Analog Telephone Adapters (ATAs). These allow for connecting a traditional single line phone, alarm or fax machine to a VoIP system. IP phones from manufacturers such as Polycom and Yealink are the most commonly used type of phone for companies that subscribe to VoIP service.
