Use our savings calculator to see how much you can save moving to Hosted PBX

Recently, we set out to prove our claim that businesses can “save 50% or more moving to Hosted PBX.” And prove it we did!

We reached out to 19 customers who were considering replacing their phone system to compare monthly phone costs from their current provider against our Hosted PBX. We also asked them what they paid upfront for their phone systems. Findings from our cost savings study show that, on average, customers save over 50% on monthly phone service costs by moving to Intermedia. That number is even higher if you factor in hardware costs.

When you reduce your business phone services bill, the savings over time can quickly add up. We broke out the customers’ monthly service costs for per-line service, carrier and local and long distance fees, and here’s what we discovered:

  • Per-line service fees. On average, the businesses whose bills we examined were paying monthly per-line service fees of $44.64, compared with Intermedia’s monthly per-line service fee of $30.99
  • Carrier fees. On average, these businesses paid monthly carrier fees of $11.23 per line, compared with Intermedia’s carrier fees of $1.50 per line
  • Local and long distance fees. Like Intermedia, many of the providers covered in the analysis charge no per-line local or long distance fees — although a few charge, per line, as much as $14.75 for local service and $5.00 for long distance service

Can cloud-based phones really cut your bills by over 50%?

The findings of our study represent the average savings these customers experienced when purchasing a cloud-based phone system. However, not all customers are created equal. So don’t stop at averages. Use our savings calculator below to see how much cloud-based phones can save your business.
