Hosted Telephony uses the internet to carry the voice calls, therefore there is no costly PBX to install and maintain you just pay for the user licence and handset all your minutes are included in the licence cost, a hosted system will use your existing LAN therefore no need to install extra data points, there are many benefits such as flexibility when you move office you simply take your handsets with you and plug in at the new office, as your number is in the cloud you take them with you, no need to change your phone number on your web site or business cards.

And with on demand access to change users, replace handsets, amend voicemail settings you are in control of your phone system.
SIP trunks enable your phone to send or receive calls, it uses your internet connection, SIP will replace ISDN and any business with a new or modern PBX can switch to SIP, we just need to know how many concurrent calls you make, if your business makes 10 concurrent calls you will need 10 channels. You will find SIP are lot cheaper than ISDN typically around 60% cheaper on line rental alone with calls charges the savings could be around 80%.

While normal fixed-line broadband is delivered through Ethernet cables, using routers, mobile broadband works a bit differently. It connects to a mobile network and sends data through 5G, 4G and 3G services – exactly the same as the internet you get on your mobile phone.
Mobile broadband can come in many forms:
- A dongle – which is a little thumb-sized device that plugs into the USB port of your computer and connects it to the internet.
- A personal Wi-Fi device – Also known as a mi-fi device, pocket Wi-Fi, or portable hotspot, this is a small gadget that acts as a mini router. Switch it on, and it’ll connect to 4G and broadcast Wi-Fi so you can hook up your computer, tablet, or phone while you’re on the go. See our
- Data-only SIM cards – Thesework exactly like SIM cards for your mobile phone, except they only have a data allowance with no calls or texts. Put one in the SIM card slot of certain iPads and tablets, and it’ll get it online.
The main advantage of mobile broadband is that it’s portable. Once you have a dongle or Wi-Fi device, you can take it wherever you want, and as long as you have 4G signal you can use the internet. For very, very light users who only want to use the internet to check email every now and then, it can even work out cheaper than a fixed-line broadband.
