Frequently Asked Questions - Business Phone Lines

You should find all the answers to your questions below or if you already know what you need and would just like to find out about costs, then please follow the link to our contact us form and one of our team will be in touch soon.

We provide a full range of business phone lines and call packages. Actually, from traditional telephone calls and line rental tariffs to VoIP phone lines using the internet. Many businesses are now turning from a traditional landline phone system to a hosted VoIP solution for their business. As it increases business communication efficiency and is feature-rich, flexible, and cost-effective. VoIP phone systems can offer businesses many benefits over regular phone service. Importantly it is reducing monthly costs. Also, they allow calls to be made from any location with a computer and an internet connection.

You can enjoy lower-cost bills by switching your line rental to Tech IP. Along with the convenience of getting your line rental and call charges on a single monthly bill. Of course, all our rates are competitive to all chargeable call destinations, including international. Also, all calls are billed by the second with no rounding up, and no minimum call charge or call set up charges, unlike some other providers. Importantly, we have no complicated call plans. Thus, ensuring you know exactly what you are paying for, all of the time, on your business phone lines.

VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol. VoIP works by converting your voice into digital data and sending it through your internet connection. So instead of your voice passing through traditional business phone lines, it passes through your router instead.

As a result, businesses deploy SIP trunks to take full advantage of VoIP capabilities
SIP Trunks are the physical connections that provide voice service to your phone system. They are powerful, scalable, and highly flexible. In fact, it’s telephony that connects your premises directly to the Public Telephone Network (PSTN) via IP/broadband. SIP Trunks provide a flexible and low-cost alternative to ISDN. For both inbound and outbound voice calls.

One of the most significant advantages of SIP trunking is its ability to combine data, voice, and video in a single line. Therefore, eliminating the need for separate lines of physical media. Reducing cost and also enhanced reliability for these services.
SIP trunking and VoIP technology share many similar parallels however where VoIP carries voice, SIP can carry all forms of media.

This will depend on the property, the type of business phone lines, and the local BT Openreach engineering lead times. We advise that you allow up to 6 weeks.  Providing adequate time for overcoming any problems that may occur.  However, we can sometimes have new business phone lines fitted in less than 5 working days.

Reducing costs is certainly one of the main reasons businesses choose to switch to VoIP and cloud-type services. The cost savings involved with office VoIP phone systems are significant, with minimal hardware to buy upfront and no maintenance costs. Also, monthly call charges are all-inclusive. So whether you’re a small business or a 500-person enterprise spread across many offices doesn’t matter.

VoIP phone systems are extremely flexible and customisable to meet the needs of your business. Our business phone line rental plans include free calls to UK landlines and mobiles. Bringing you the latest phones that offer many sophisticated features at no extra charge. Making VoIP even more attractive.

BT announced its intention to switch off the ISDN telephone networks by 2025. As such customers will need to migrate over to a single IP core network in the next couple of years. So for many customers, they will need a whole new phone system to accommodate the switch.,

The uptake for VoIP phone lines is undoubtedly increasing by the day. More customers are migrating their business phone lines and calls onto the internet. Now using SIP instead of ISDN, So, this announcement from BT to withdraw ISDN and give a specific date will speed up the migration to VoIP. Details about BT’s plans and what options are available for your business can be found here… BT confirms ISDN lines to be terminated by 2025.
