Hosted VoIP

Voice Over Internet Protocol – or VoIP – enables you to make free, or very low-cost calls over the internet. It’s scalable, resilient and comes with a variety of features. Which is why more and more businesses are choosing it as their main phone system.

When moving to VoIP, it’s crucial to find a partner that understands what you need and, more importantly, has the experience and expertise to deliver. At Distant Voice, we’ve made things as simple as possible, offering features
you can use every day.
