Demon does VoIP

So does Timico

Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Demon, the ISP owned by Scottish telco Thus, has unveiled details of a broadband voice service aimed at small businesses.

Called "Demon Voice Over Broadband solution for SMEs", Thus reckons its VoIP solution can cut the amount SMEs spend on making voice calls while making better use of their existing broadband connection.

As part of the Demon deal, workers will be given their own 0845 number that they can use while in the office or from their laptop at home.

Demon is offering its service in three flavours, starting with "Demon Voice Over Broadband - UK", which costs £14.99 to set up and then £2.99 a month plus standard call charges.

Elsewhere, Nottinghamshire-based converged comms outfit Timico has also released details of a new VoIP package aimed at SMEs, which is dangling the carrot of "free" broadband to tempt punters.

Its "VoIP for Business" package costs £29.99 a month for the first line and £9.99 for each additional line.

Timico commercial director Matthew Gimlette said: "By incorporating free broadband, customers are getting real value for money for a true business-strength VoIP service and they will benefit from having their converged communications services - mobile, fixed, internet and VoIP - on one, unified bill, enabling the easy capture and management of communication costs." ®
