One of the biggest challenges businesses face early on is how to easily and efficiently communicate with their partners, clients and customers. While landline phones used to be the most cost effective means to communicate, they are now out-dated, slower and possibly even more expensive than those services available today. Many businesses are turning to VoIP and SIP providers as it costs less money than traditional calling methods and offers many features that are beneficial for all stakeholders involved in a business., a site that helps businesses and residences find the best VoIP provider, recently analyzed VoIP and SIP trunk providers for various factors such as price, user reviews, features and experience ratings and found that BroadVoice and 8x8, Inc. were among the ones that make communication easiest for businesses.

BroadVoice offers a service that is user friendly and easy to set up service as it only requires hooking up its box to a router and calls can be made and received as soon as businesses plug in their phone.

Customers using BroadVoice can keep their current phone numbers and current phones as long as it's a single line analog phone with touch tones. In addition to basic calling, customers will also have access to a free second line, voicemail sent to email, 7-day customer support, a list for blocked callers and the same ring from multiple phones.

8x8, which is intended specifically for business VoIP solutions, has basic calling options as well hold music, three-way calling, PC calling, conference bridging and auto attendant. The latter replaces the need for a receptionist as callers can direct themselves to the person they wish to talk to.

With regards to pricing, BroadVoice provides its service starting at $8.33 per month and comes with a standard 30-day money back guarantee and 8x8's services start at $19.99 per month.

So as highlighted by, businesses looking for a route to success should consider turning to one of these SIP trunk providers for its communication needs as both providers have proven to be the most effective and won't burn a hole in business owners’ wallets.
