and Best Buy announce the extension of their free phone offer, which has successfully eliminated one of the last barriers to VoIP adoption. In March, Speakeasy began offering free Polycom SoundPoint IP 321 VoIP-enabled phones to new business customers who purchase unlimited or global Hosted Voice calling plans and have a minimum of five lines. The promotion was so successful that Speakeasy has made the decision to extend the promotion through the end of June.
According to a recent study released by CompTIA, a trade association for the global IT industry, 25 percent of small- and medium-sized businesses expect to adopt a VoIP solution this year. This promotion has clearly demonstrated its ability to accelerate that trend.
Speakeasy customer Gorilla Tango is an example of a small business who has found tremendous value in Hosted Voice. Not only has it saved 70 percent on its phone bill, but it is able to operate the business 24 hours a day in two locations without adding a lot of staff.
