Combining Business Fibre & VoIP for Full-House Business Connectivity

Staff Writer's picture

VoIP, standing for Voice over Internet Protocol, has the power to transform your business connectivity and communications, no matter the size of your company, with the help of business Fibre.

4 Business functions it enhances, include:

  1. Personalised customer communication
  2. Enhanced brand perception
  3. Builds trust in sales funnels and marketing campaigns
  4. Boost sales and marketing with data analytics

In addition, VoIP saves significant costs because it uses the internet instead of a landline.

But VoIP requires fast and reliable internet, which is why business Fibre goes hand in hand with it.

Let’s check out how combining Fibre and VoIP provides total connectivity that is affordable for any sized business:

What is VoIP?

VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol.

It’s an alternative way of making phone calls and hosting webinars and is a lot cheaper, particularly if you need to make international calls.

Skype and Zoom are two well-known options of VoIP, which can be used on different devices: laptop, desktop, tablets and mobile phones. Everyone, no matter where in the world they are, can log in for the Monday morning conference call without having to shlep to the office.

According to Lifewire, VoIP has been named the most successful technology of the past decade. They say that “the main reason for which people are turning to VoIP technology is the cost. In businesses, VoIP is a way to cut down communication cost, add more features to communication and interaction between employees and with customers to render the system more efficient and of better quality.”

Benefits of VoIP for business

There are many benefits of VoIP in business, including:

  • Saving money
  • Portability
  • Flexibility
  • Multi-functional usage

Using VoIP to make calls and especially international calls, is a lot cheaper than using the traditional phone. It offers the choice of making a normal audio call or a video call. With VoIP, your employees can have a conference right from their desks, eliminating travel expenses to boot.

VoIP allows continual collaboration between co-workers and clients for a chat, holding meetings, exchanging files and documents, no matter where anyone is located. It also offers data analytics and holds records of communications which landlines never did.

As such, VoIP boosts productivity and communication. Get more info about how VoIP benefits businesses.

Benefits of business Fibre

Faster connection speeds and greater reliability in the form of business Fibre, are boosting productivity, particularly beneficial if your organisation has core processes where connectivity is essential, like a call centre which has busier periods than others, and the last thing needed is a system crash.

Slow upload and download speeds are now a distant memory for businesses that use Fibre and the right Fibre provider (because many ISPs shape and throttle data which affects speeds).

Optic-Fibre cables allow for faster data transfer compared to the standard copper wires which are used in other broadband connections like ADSL.

VoIP + business Fibre = uninterrupted communication

Business Fibre is more reliable and faster than previous internet connectivity types, and this benefits VoIP. To give you an example, think Skype (the most popular form of VoIP) when the connection is interrupted or slow. But with Fibre, interruptions and slowness will not happen.

But with ADSL or wireless, Skype connections are often frustrating and inefficient.

Slow broadband connection will affect the use of VoIP (aka Skype as our example) and your calls may often drop. Using business Fibre broadband with VoIP guarantees interruption-free communication.

Business Fibre is the new generation of broadband. ADSL and wireless are now seen as older technology. When it comes to the internet, Fibre broadband is the way to go to run a successful business because of its reliability and speed.

VoIP and business Fibre packages

Fibre is the choice for heavy internet usage, streaming, video, browsing, research and VoIP. Uncapped business Fibre connectivity is perfect for video conferencing.  

BitCo offers both business Fibre and VoIP, separately and as a package deal.

In addition, we have connection agreements with other telephony providers which allows our client’s reduced call rates, which saves you even further.

The price for business Fibre packages varies depending on the needs of your business. It ranges from 10Mbps to 1Gbps. It’s best to look at your current internet usage and then research the Fibre packages that meet your needs.

If you want to stay ahead of your competitors, now may be the time to upgrade the technology you’re using, and business Fibre and VoIP as a package should certainly be considered a top priority.
