Shropshire’s Superfast Broadband – Ideal for VoIP

Shropshire is finally catching up with the rest of the country in terms of broadband speed. The website Connecting Shropshire is an excellent place to check for updates on when you will get ‘Super fast’ Broadband.

Fibre Broadband is in Shropshire

Fibre Broadband is in Shropshire

Super fast broadband (Fibre Broadband) is perfect for our VoIP systems with download speeds of up to 80Mb and upload speeds up to 20Mb, a dedicated broadband line can in theory handle around 50 simultaneous calls all over one phone line!

If your business is in a Fibre broadband area and you have multiple ISDN or PSTN lines you could make huge savings by switching to VoIP over Fibre.

A typical 8 line ISDN phones system will cost around £160+VAT a month in line rental. Replace those ISDN lines with Fibre broadband and your equivalent bill drops to around £50+VAT a month.

Its not just the cost savings of VoIP that make it so appealing to businesses. video calling, hot desking, mobile apps, extensive call logging, digital receptionists, voicemail to email, call recording, home working, rapid deployment and much more.

If you are unsure of what phones lines you currently have or you need help with Fibre broadband give us a call.

Using the 3CX Phone App over 4G

You may have noticed the photo of Mark on our Twitter feed last week using the new HTC One M8.

It was the first time he had been able to try the phone is a super fast 4G Mobile area. We ran some www.speedtest.net trials on were getting up to 38Mbps – which is amazing when you consider some offices still have a traditional broadband speed of around 2Mbps.

With the 3CX Mobile App installed and ready to go we called the office to brag about our ‘Research and Development day’ 😉 at the gadget show. As expected the call quality over 4G was perfect.

As 4G continues to be rolled out (We use EE for out mobiles phones, you can check coverage here) in to more and more areas having your office phone extension with you on your mobile phone is going to be seemless thanks to the speed of 4G and the power of 3CX Phone for iPhone and Android.
