SAN JOSE, Calif., July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual PBX, the pioneer and leader in hosted PBX phone systems, today announced new business VoIP packages that make VoIP and advanced digital phone services affordable to companies of any size. Innovation and economies of scale within the business VoIP market have enabled Virtual PBX to reduce plan costs by up to 70 percent.


In addition to its dramatic reduction in pricing, Virtual PBX is also offering the option for its customers to further reduce costs by paying for a year in advance, with annual plans starting at just $8.99 per month. Customers who choose to pay the year in advance will also receive up to 10 free VoIP phones, which include the most popular Polycom IP phones in the market. These one-year plans set Virtual PBX apart as the first major business VoIP provider to include quality VoIP desk phones and wireless handsets in high-value customer plans.

"Our new packages eliminate many of the concerns and risks related to deploying a high-quality business VoIP system," said Paul Hammond, CEO and president of Virtual PBX. "We're confident that these new plans deliver the highest value available today."

Changes to Virtual PBX's pricing plans and offerings include:

  •  Flat-rate Plans:
    • Unlimited-use plans now start as low as $18.99 per month per user.
    • Annual plan customers can receive up to 10 free VoIP phones, a value of $170 per phone.
    • No activation fees.
  • Usage-based Plans:
    • Plans now start as low as $8.99 per month.
    • New plans allow customers more minutes at a lower price with savings of up to 70 percent.
    • Annual plans include up to 4 free VoIP phones, a value of $170 per phone.
    • No activation fees.

"Voice over IP telephony often offers reduced costs, which are extremely important in this economy," said Larry Hettick, principal analyst with Current Analysis.  "But up-front cost of buying new phones can be an issue, especially in the small business market.  This move by Virtual PBX can help reduce the barrier to entry for their clients and make it easier for businesses to try VoIP."

Hosted PBX systems already eliminate the need to buy and maintain expensive PBX hardware.  Now, small businesses can reduce monthly costs by replacing $50-$60 per month business land lines with under $20 per month "digital lines," while avoiding the expense of purchasing new phone hardware.   Entrepreneurs can get their businesses up and running without the worry of up-front costs. This comes at a perfect time as the company has seen an increase in momentum since its implementation of its latest VoIP solutions.
