This depends on the SIP provider. Broadvox allows for month-to-month, 1-year, 2-year, and 3-year terms. Month-to-month contracts require that the customer pay monthly with an automatic credit card deduction.

This depends on the type of codec (the mechanism used to compress the voice traffic over IP) and the number of simultaneous calls. Broadvox uses G.711 and G.729. G.711 is considered “higher quality” and usually consumes about 88 Kbps (with overhead). G.729 consumes about 38 Kbps. Most of our customers choose the G.729 codec because they get more use out of their bandwidth. We personally cannot hear the quality difference between the two codecs.

Well obviously the best connection is a direct link to the SIP provider. This isn’t always (more often than not) a very economical solution for the small office. Low cost / high bandwidth Internet connections (DSL and cable) are very popular for our customers with 15 or less trunks. Keep in mind, these Internet connections are low cost for a reason. You are sharing the access to that Internet connection with your neighbors. This introduces a number of factors outside your control that can affect quality – the number of neighbors, their Internet usage, the quality of the cable or copper, etc.
