VoIP Call rates that make sense…

Most of our clients choose Switch Telecom for the advanced solutions we provide.  Some, however, choose us for our really affordable VoIP call rates.

We don’t confuse our client’s with “in and out of bundle” pricing or different VoIP call rates for “peak and off-peak” periods. There is no such thing as a free lunch and by the same token there is no such thing as “free calls”. What we do offer is the choice between two basic and easy to understand VoIP call rate packages.

Package 1 is ideal for companies whose users make long calls.  Companies that sell solutions or services would benefit from the lower VoIP call rates charged.  The calls are charged in 30-second increments with a minimum of 60 seconds.

Conversely, Package 2 would suit the needs of companies whose agents make shorter calls, such as Security companies or Call Centres.  The rates are slightly higher than those of Package 1. The per second billing will, however, bring down your overall call costs.
