Hey there. I’d appreciate some words of wisdom on my phone dilemma.


We are a small business of 7 people we have an ageing PABX running our phones and a dedicated fibre line feeding our broadband (UFB is coming in 2017!). We have a main phone number plus 7 individual phones - with 3 lines coming into the office. No fax.


What should we do?

I'd like a system - which could be cloud based, that is flexible if our needs change in the future, doesn't lock us into a long term contract and doesn't cost a fortune. 

Thanks for your help in advance!

Where are you based?

I know of a service that is perfect for you, but only available to those based in the top of the south island.

2talk? Plus a consultant to set it up if necessary? Bunch of nice VoIP desk phones?

That will give you all the PABX features without needing to have one on site. The service is good and very sharply priced.

You could also talk with IFM about 2talk, routers etc. I would recommend it. They are a 2talk reseller, know the product and their business is reliable networks.
I think you could probably ping pdath on the forums here as well if need be.
