The Top Three Hosted-PBX VoIP Telephone Service Providers Announced by

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - Voice over Internet Protocol is the hot, new telephone service that can reduce an office telephone bill as much as 80% in the first year. By sending voice-data over the Internet in compressed digital packets instead of through traditional copper land-lines, providers can dramatically lower prices while improving call quality and also offer dozens of business-class features that would ordinarily cost big bucks. An increasingly popular feature of the cloud-based technology is called "Hosted PBX." This is where the VoIP service provider "hosts" the Private Branch Exchange (PBX) that routes the calls, off-site. Hosted PBX eliminates the expense of installing, maintaining, and repairing an on-premise PBX, and also frees up valuable office space. The telecom experts at have reviewed the prices, features, and customer-reviews of dozens of hosted PBX telephone providers nationwide to announce their list of the "Top Three Hosted PBX VoIP Telephone Service Providers" in the US.

1. Mitel

Mitel is currently running a promotion (through November) that gives two months of hosted service at no additional cost with a one year contract, and a reduced monthly cost of $17.50 per user. Whereas many providers only supply the Hosted PBX service and leave you to outsource other critical aspects of your system like Internet access and network management, Mitel offers a "unified communications solution." They provide everything from Internet, to software, to network IT support so a business can make one phone call to one company, to iron out any issues: Mitel.

2. AlliancePhones

AlliancePhones is a hosted business VoIP provider that boasts a Redundant Tier 1 Network; that means 99.9 percent "uptime" reliability. Right now Alliance is offering new clients a custom professional human voice-recording at no cost. Alliance has low, monthly all-inclusive plans starting at $19.97/month that include unlimited calling in the US and Canada, US-based customer support, no set-up fee, and month-to-month contracts. They have a wide array of Internet Protocol (IP) phones to choose from, that arrive preloaded with more than a dozen big-business features.

3. Vocalocity

Vocalocity hosted business VoIP phone service is available starting at $19.99/month and through November 18th they are offering an extra month of service and a High-Def Cisco 303G VoIP telephone to new customers, at no additional cost. Their US-based customer support is available 24/7 to provide operational support and technical assistance whenever needed. The service comes with "Virtual Receptionist" call-routing, cell-phone integration, iPhone and Android apps, CRM integration, custom on-hold music, and custom messaging.

With so many reasons to make the switch over to business VoIP telephone service, hosted PBX seems like icing on the cake. It's cost effective for large corporations, as well as start-ups and SMB's. Before the advent of Internet-based, cloud-technology it would be impossible for a phone company to assume this kind of responsibility or offer customers the savings, freedom, and scalability of a feature like hosted PBX. That's probably why so many companies are cashing in their chips on the landline companies, and placing their bets on VoIP. To compare more hosted PBX service plans and providers visit
