SIP Trunking.

SIP Trunking is telecoms speak for phone lines. Instead of having phone lines, you now have SIP trunks.

The savings from SIP trunking can be huge - you can save up to £400 per line per year through reduced line rental & call costs.

Benefits of SIP Trunking - The Headlines

  • 75% saving on line rental costs for small businesses 
  • 60% saving on line rental costs for larger businesses
  • Quicker, cheaper and more flexible in adding or removing line capacity
  • Free calls between offices
  • Guaranteed savings
  • Immediate disaster recovery

Benefits of SIP Trunking - The Details

75% saving on line rental costs for small businesses 

BTs line rental costs for small businesses (commonly called ISDN 2) are £23.88 per line per month compared to £6 per month for robust SIP trunking. It is important for small businesses to remember that robust broadband is needed for SIP trunking to work well and to advise that a saving of 60% on line rentals is more realistic for small businesses.

60% saving on line rental costs for larger businesses

BTs line rental costs for larger businesses (commonly called ISDN 30) are £23.43 per month for an annual contract compared to £6 per month for SIP trunking.

Quicker, cheaper and more flexible in adding or removing line capacity

Lines do not have to be purchased in groups. As your business grows you can purchase these lines individually and as your needs change or if the number of lines you need is reduced, you can easily reduce your capacity.

Free calls between offices

For businesses with multiple sites, SIP is an easy choice. Calls can be transferred between sites with no cost.

Guaranteed savings

If you are paying line rental at the moment, we can guarantee you savings – it’s not theoretical

Immediate disaster recovery

If disaster happens, it doesn’t need to cost you your business. We will setup a disaster recovery plan to reroute your numbers in the event of a problem, ensuring business continuity. SIP enables numbers to be quickly and easily diverted.

There are many reasons why RDC Communications offer the best and most well thought-out SIP trunking service in the UK. These include:
