I use a hosted telephone system for my business. It is a monthly fee to support the phone system. It gives me a lot of flexibility to have phone service anytime, and I also take advantage of the system to have phone calls routed through my company.
Hosted telephone systems are a feature offered by a number of telecom service providers. Like most of the other systems we discuss here, they are essentially the same, but the provider has its own system to manage the call. These systems are relatively expensive, but they are quite necessary if you want to have call forwarding, conference calling, and other features.
I don’t know about you, but I would like to know where I can get some of the technology from.
I just got my own hosted telephony system, and it’s pretty cool. I can set up a call forwarding service, and I can use my phone to make conference calls. You can even set up different conference calls for different people and different teams. It’s a pretty cool system. So, in my case, I’d like to have it.
That said, many companies that want to provide phone service to their employees will charge their employees to use it. For example, my company uses some of the same features that Microsoft offers for its Exchange servers, so we pay them the same (or more) for the services we use. I think this is a great deal for many companies, especially startups. For companies that don’t have many customers or need constant support, this might be a great option.
In my case, I got a free VoIP phone from my employer. I use it a few times a week and really like it. However, it is one of those systems that gets expensive quickly.
A hosted VoIP phone is what I use to call my customers, and because I pay Microsoft for the service, I can use it on my personal home Internet connection too. You can have multiple of these same features for free on every major VoIP provider. Microsoft offers its own hosted VoIP service at their website, if you want to check it out.
What the heck is a hosted VoIP phone? It’s just a thing that you can use on your own computer or in your mobile phone, and is meant to share your information with your neighbors. It’s great for your Internet connection, but it’s a little annoying when you’re dealing with a local Internet service provider.
Now, lets be honest, we don’t know much about hosted VoIP services in general, so I’m putting this out there as an article and a question for the readers to answer.
I have a few suggestions about how to get started with this thing. First, you should check out your local Internet service provider. If you have a local service provider, you can install a VoIP phone through them and then hook it up to your computer and call your neighbors. It will work great for things like calling your mom or your dad who live far away, though.
