Low rates for high quality USA CC VoIP route. As low as $.0045

Star Communication has a special pricing model that allows us to provide the highest quality short duration termination.   We service VoIP providers, CLECs, PBX providers, SMBs and contact centers around the globe.  With competitive pricing and reliability, we’ve helped many VoIP carriers and call centers cut telecommunications cost.

Customers using our full NPANXX rate plan often average costs as low as $.0045 per minute.  Most Call Centers call highly populated areas which tend to be lower in cost per minute.  For example; a center is more likely to call San Antonio, TX [rate $.0019/min] than Fairbanks, Alaska [rate $.02/min].  Prices vary because phone companies have different billing arraignments and hard costs to route and terminate calls to their subscribers.   Highly populated areas are more competitive in pricing which drives VoIP termination costs lower.  Much of Star Communication’s coverage starts at just $.001 per minute.

Should you purchase wholesale VoIP from a Tier 1 or Tier 2 VoIP provider? And what are the pros vs cons?

When looking to buy wholesale VoIP there are many factors to consider. Many companies first consideration is the cost of the minutes themselves as this is a good gauge to determine the size of the provider you are dealing with. Other things to consider are the backbone network of the provider, the support they provide, the channel limitations, the quality of the voice, call set up time, latency, and even hidden fees.

One type of VoIP provider would be a Tier 1 carrier such as AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, ect. Tier 1 VoIP providers typically have their own network of hard copper lines spanning a certain area terminating to the end user. They also often will peer directly with other Tier 1 providers to increase their footprint. This allows for the highest quality of voice and reliability. Tier 1 providers usually have large volume requirements to send traffic over their wholesale VoIP network. Their pricing usually ranges with the potential customers traffic type and volume.

Another type of VoIP provider would be a Tier 2 carrier such as XO, Time Warner, IDT Corp., ect. Tier 2 VoIP providers typically are interconnected with one or more Tier 1 VoIP providers. Tier 2 providers can even have their own local network that reaches to their end users. The quality of service provided by a Tier 2 provider is often comparable to that of a Tier 1 provider. Tier 2 providers mostly focus on servicing small to medium sized businesses (100 – 999 employees) and typically do not have volume requirements to access their network. Depending on volume Tier 2 providers will openly negotiate and cater rates to the customer’s requirements.

Making the final decision on which provider you will use can sometimes be a daunting task. Below is a list of Pros and Cons that may help you in that decision. Star Communications has helped many companies through this process. Typically we are able to negotiate better rates and offer additional services that assist our partners in choosing the right solution. Starcom has helped well over 100 companies through this process. Large Call Centers, VoIP providers, CLECs and many other types of businesses have benefited from our services. If you’d like to speak to one of our representatives about your wholesale needs and expectations, shoot us an email at sales@starcompartners.com or call 1-877-519-8464

 

 

                                Tier 1                                                                        Tier 2

Pros Cons Pros Cons
Direct Network via hard copper lines Often more expensive Multiple Tier 1 ULCs for better Back-up Smaller network
Reliable Prolonged Setup (could take months) Often better pricing Smaller budget with fewer employees (support, sales, ect.)
Highest Capacity Network outages affect all customers Quick set-up Channel limitations
Secure   Secure Could have local connection issues due to Tier 1 provider going down

What does BYOV mean? And how can it help save your company money?

BYOV represents an abbreviation of Bring Your Own VoIP.

BYOV is related to VoIP telephony technology such as SIP Trunks, DID numbers, and T.38 faxing. Typically companies who offer cloud based telephony services have an option for you to BYOV. These types of providers range from Hosted PBX providers, Soft Switch providers, CRM providers, Hosted Predictive Dialer providers, and more.

It’s important to compare costs when looking towards using a cloud based telephony service.  Some service providers offer VoIP included in their pricing where others have a BYOV option.  Using a BYOV cloud based provider allows you to have an advantage and find the most reliable and least cost VoIP solution for your company.  In most cases, using a cloud based service and combining it with BYOV you will see significant savings.

It’s easy to compare the cost difference between a BYOV service provider vs an all inclusive.  For a BYOV service provider, start by looking at your average monthly minute usage.  Then calculate the per minute rates from a wholesale VoIP provider.  Also factor in the cost of the cloud service provider’s platform.  Once you have this together you’ll have a good approximation of the monthly costs.  To compare with a company that offers VoIP included, simply look at the cost per month.  Make sure to find out if their offer includes unlimited VoIP or if there is a limit.  Then it’s as easy as comparing apples to apples.

To learn more and find out how Star Communication can assist you, visit our website here or email us at sales@starcompartners.com.   We strive to be the one stop shop for all of your BYOV needs.  Our voice platform was built by a team of telecommunications experts and has effectively dialed and received billions of calls during critical communication times.
