  • What carrier or internet service provider do you use?B SIP isnbt going to provide you with the voice quality youbre used to for a landed phone line unless it rides on bandwidth that has low latency and jitter.
  • How many phone lines do you have or need?B Most carriers have minimums for SIP trunks (also known as channels) that may be more than you need.B If you have to boverbuyb, then you may not end up saving money.
