Switchtel - one of the best companies I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

Has anyone tried Voys.co.za or Voyla.co.za

My assessment with voys.co.za, they seem to have pricy rental.

Try connection telecom. We migrated 1 office last year and very happy with their service. Busy with a group VOIP solution now

Voys.co.za is R70 monthly and voyla.co.za is R39 monthly with cheaper mobile rates.

What’s your take ?

I signed up with voyla.co.za because they provide geographic numbers. If I am not happy, I can port anytime.

With 087 numbers, you can’t port.

Hi Gents/Ladies

Small Office, 4 users. Have been offered an expensive Panasonic Voip PBX installation +- 18k vs a hosted PBX.

Can't I just install a Yealink Cordless DECT Base - Y-W60Bcordless base station and run 4 phones off that?

I have Axxess 50/50Mbs fibre. What solution will be best?

Thanks in advance.

So Freshphone doesn't allow porting more then 1 telephone numbers. I have 2. Freshphone is automatically disqualified. Oh and they don't have telephonic support? Rubbish.

Who else is good that offers to port 2 VOIP numbers?

Are you willing to pay per extension?

Don't need Hosted Extension. I'm just porting my 2 VOIP lines from Cool Ideas to Switchtel. Its about R45 per line, something like that.

I have 1 line @ Swichtel, never had any issues with them. R45 /mo rental - I have a PAYG line so I just top-up when I need to. Great analytics and support on their site as well

Yeah well I can’t say the same. I’m not that impressed so far. I sent through my porting application yesterday and I still have had no response.
