In the last couple of weeks, several TeleDynamic customers have expresed interest in SIP Trunking pricing. They are telling us that they are looking specifically to control increasing monthly costs.
As you might have noticed, AT&T analog lines are getting increasingly expensive. AT&T and Verizon are aggressive in their approach at moving away from the old business of providing phone service.
To accelerate the process (and raise their profits at the same time) they frequently raise the price on analog line monthly service. TelePacific and other competitors have jumped on the price increase bandwagon. Bay Area analog line customers are now paying $35 - $50 per line after all of the fees, surcharges and taxes are included.
A new San Jose SIP trunking customer had enough of the excessive costs and threw in the towel with AT&T. The savings for converting from analog to SIP trunks was over 50% - in this case a compelling savings.
A San Francisco SIP trunking customer had much smaller savings, but they gained Caller ID and direct inward dial (DID) so that every employee had their own telephone number. Fpr them the business reasons for moving to SIP trunking were more about productivity and customer service. The VoiP savings was just icing on the cake.
What is evident is that businesses are feeling the pain of rising monthly phone bills. Fortunately, there is a way to end the increased monthly costs by moving to the new technology called SIP trunking. Everyone wins - our customers have lower phone bills and they are doing their part to help AT&T exit a business they no longer want to pursue.
