I am shopping for hosted VoIP and have this dilemma:
- Hosted VoIP over existing internet data connection
- Dedicated T1 in each office for VoIP only
besides looking for to reduce cost and deal with less providers I would also prefer to reduce the equipment on site (while with the first option I will need a router in each location for the VoIP only) and really like the idea of utilizing existing data bandwidth for the VoIP service while few consulting companies told me they would not recommend that.
What are your thoughts or experience with this?
