VoIP Switch - ITP VoIP Helps Shoppers Make Informed Choices about Digital Phone Service

September 12, 2011


Internet phone service provider, ITP VoIP has announced that it is helping shoppers compare VoIP plans with other national phone providers, enabling them to make informed choices about their digital phone service.

ITP VoIP offers lower prices and more free features than many prominent competing services, according to company officials in a release.

ITP VoIP provides a "Compare" button on every plan page on, which company officials say enables shoppers to quickly compare VoIP service offered by ITP to competitors’ plans making it easier for potential customers to shop comparatively without having to pull pricing information from multiple locations.

Company officials said that potential customers can see that prices will increase by over $100 after many competitors’ one-year promotional periods have expired.

Moreover, customers of ITP VoIP receive more than 30 free features with any business or local phone plan. These features match the standard perks provided by competitors, including caller ID and call waiting.

However, the VoIP phone provider also offers additional free features such as call recording, voicemail-to-email alerts, universal number support, and hold music, said company officials.

Additionally, company officials said that they also make it easy to add additional features that are especially useful for businesses or those who use a VoIP phone as a home office line.

Last month, ITP VoIP announced that its customers could benefit from its new “Refer-a-Friend” program that provides them a chance to earn credits towards their accounts.
