Demand for VoIP Rising in Canada
By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributing Editor
A recent report conducted by VoIPGizmos.ca and other VoIP
providers in Canada shows that demand for VoIP in Canada is at all-time high. One out of every twelve Canadians is currently enjoying the benefits of VoIP.
A large number of VoIP gadgets and solutions providers in Canada have witnessed this overwhelming increase in demand for VoIP services in the country. VoIPGizmos.ca founder Alex Kovalenko explained that the demand for VoIP has not only been overwhelming for service providers, but for gadget providers as well.
He said that they are already way past their sales target for the year, and the trend is very promising. The number of companies, home-based business and ordinary individuals coming to them for their VoIP needs have grown substantially.
Ariel Roberge, VP of eBusiness at Eteriors Inc. — an online B2B development firm based in Montreal —implemented VoIP to save money on long-distance and provide more flexibility to employees. Roberge said that they have people in California and Quebec — and every month it costs them a fortune to connect with each other.
Thanks to VoIP internal calling — they interconnect freely without constraints between their offices. They can choose their providers on a global scale and setup local numbers in most cities and believe that it was definitely a great move forward.
VoipGizmos.ca speaks about Eldred Rego, a home user in Toronto, who is switching his home to VoIP because it will cost him much less to call his relatives overseas if he starts using VoIP with under $200 in up-front investments. The company expects the positive trend in the demand of VoIP further increase in future.
“VoIP is the solution to our every communication need,” said Kovalenko in a statement.
He continued: “ We are determined to help our clients feel comfortable and take the most advantage of the functionality and value of VoIP. We also want to make VoIP to be within reach to all Canadians.”
VoipGizmos.ca supplies IP
phones, PBX (News
), IP gateways, wireless and video IP and other VoIP equipment to advanced technology offices and homes all over Canada.
