Conclusion: provides an excellent value for one of the highest quality services we’ve reviewed. At $23.99 per unlimited minute extension per month, provides some of the cheapest pricing for unlimited calling in the business VoIP market. The company does, however, charge a base fee of $9.99 per month (first month after the trial is free), which includes 100 metered minutes. This can be used for anything, but it makes sense for a confernece room phone or other non-call heavy line. Additionally, provides (800) area code toll-free numbers and vanity numbers for free with your account, going above and beyond many providers. It also provides at no extra cost features such as conference calling, Internet faxing, and mobile applications.
