Our company currently uses over 1,000 different VOIP local phone DID numbers. We currently pay .99 per number per month through Ringcentral. Our plan gives us the minutes we need (around 15K/month) and 5 users, a phone tree, departmental extensions, personal extensions, automatic voice recording, and softphones for around $1,500 per month.
We are looking for a VOIP consultant that can get us a better way at a lower cost. In addition, We hope this person will also help us keep our 1,000 current DID numbers.
Again we are looking for a way to pay less than .99 cents per number for our 1,000 local number or a way to pay one up front fee for permanent use of our current numbers. I assume that we will need to port these to the new system.
We don't know if we need another VOIP provider, and SIP trunk provider, just a DID host, our own ISP license, Asterisk or WHAT??
We are not sure if there is a way to do this but are interested to find and will need help with the process.
