As one of the nation's largest VoIP providers, Nextiva has been catering to businesses of all sizes since 2006. It offers PBX SIP trunk services, which works with almost any PBX. There are no contracts to sign, the sound quality is excellent and the customer service worth talking about. It’s also easy to use and is considered to be fairly reliable. Customers rated Nextiva just a shade lower than Vocalocity.

It offers different pricing levels for businesses depending on the number of users. Like the other two providers, it features no contracts or setup fees.
