Searching for Affordable Business Phone Service? Icon

If you're on the hunt for business phone service that is reliable and budget-friendly, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is your answer.

Today's small-to-medium-sized (SMB) businesses and large enterprises are saving on their monthly communications costs by making one simple decision: to switch to a VoIP service solution from their old, outdated Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS). By choosing a new VoIP service, these companies enjoy the flexibility, reliability, call features, and audio quality that only a VoIP service can provide. Plus, they cut their phone bill by up to 70%!

User Reviews

  • Coming from XEdit/REXX background (IBM VM/CMS) via KEdit/PersonalREXX (DOS, Win) (Mansfield Software group) to THE and Regina REXX. Still one of the best editors around. The only thing missing, though not trivial to implement I fear, is unicode support. I prefer the old CUI TUI text mode interface.

  • Fantastic, it works like a charm under OSX (10.8)

  • Same reasons. I used Xedit for years and am familiar with this territory in THE. Now I write .the macros all the time.

  • The product is great for us mainframe users who have use Xedit for many years. I don't understand the guy that gave it a 'thumbs down' because it was stated that it is "OS Independent". This is delivered in source. How much more "OS Independent" can you get???
