Too many acronyms :(

I gather that DVX allows multiple DDIs over a SIP trunk where VFX does not.   But does that also mean with VFX you can not have concurrent calls on the single trunk?

2 for VFX, One call in progress one call waiting

VFX is a single line service i.e one to one
DVX is a Trunking service

You can have 2 simultaneous calls on a VFX line. Also can set it so if both are busy then you can get a 2nd line and fall across to that for 4 simultaneous calls.

From what maverick is saying, sounds like this is not intended!

Not what I'm saying at all, smart SIP IN services as we supply give you a lot of options, people use these options in creative ways Wink, what Zeon is doing is not the same as a SIP trunking deployment but may work in a way that works for him.

Hmm now that's interesting.

It's not a very elegant way to do it, but yes it'll work for free outbound local calls.

I'd suggest going with DVX if you want > 2 lines and DDIs.  Telecommunications is never something you want to be mickey mouse with, it'll always end in tears.

Isn't XFV essentially a residential service with free local calling? Presumably it's not recommend that you use it for (serious) business I imagine, though there doesn't appear to be much that stops a business signing up for a residential phone service from any provider.

Exact same platform, different ways of billing and different add-ons available for each.

Lol WTF?

You can do a full on PBX with DVX or VFX, incoming fax to email and VDSL2 for probably $200 a month. The calling would likely be heaps cheaper too.

The way it works with WxC is that you get free local calling if you have 2 or less lines. IE if you had 3 VFX lines on the same account you pay for local calling.

WXC don't offer virtual PBX so I would have to install and manage asterisk ( or find a reseller to do this ).  Otherwise he would have to get 3 separate lines ... that correct?

Best way is to run the PBX on a VPS based on a virtualization platform that plays nice with VOIP (e.g. Vsphere). and run something like PBX in a flash. I run this config for a number of clients with the hosted PBX costing around $30/month and can easily make changes as they request (or they can even login and do it themselves, its all web based configuration).

2x DVX lines would be $40 a month I believe and fax to email is $5/month. the aforementioned VFX route may be a better option as you'd get 4 simultaneous call ability for $23/month. While i wouldn't recommend this for larger installs as Nate points out this should suffice in this instance.

What did Telecom say when he asked for a better price? Clearly mobile must make up a big portion of that.

Landline to mobile calls only $100/month, and I think about  $80/month for his mobile.

Vodafone offer Easy Office for $150 a month which includes:

Broadband connection with 15gb data
2 VoIP lines
1 standard service line (for fax/alarm/eftpos ect
Unlimited free national calling
Unlimited calling to Vodafone Mobiles
Free VoiceMail, Call Waiting, Call Diverts etc...

And you can purchase an addon for $25 a month to include unlimited calling to Telecom and 2D mobiles if you want

Extra data is $2 per GB or you can buy another 15gb for $25.

At the moment on a 24 month contract you can get free broadband install plus an advanced voip install if internal cabling is required which is done by Transfield.

Not a bad deal when you consider what your friend is paying Telecom:
