Youíll then need to consider the telephone handset that each staff member will use. Will they be using traditional phones, IP phones or the mobile app? You may already have traditional phones from your previous phone system, but if you choose to upgrade and take advantage of the HD audio quality, buying an IP phone will cost between $69.99 and $129.99, depending on the model you choose.
In addition to your VoIP telephone hardware, youíll also need a monthly phone service plan. This costs just $19.95 per month for each user.
