Hosted Voice (VoIP)

Reduce phone bills and improve communication across your school or trust with a Hosted Voice (VoIP) system.

What is Hosted Voice (VoIP)?

Hosted Voice, – or Voice Over IP (VoIP), - is a type of phone-based communication system that routes voice calls through an internet connection rather than a traditional phone line.

Users can make the same calls to the same numbers but with more capabilities, customisation and flexibility – and at much lower monthly costs.
