How is 2talk Cloud PBX Business VoIP is Different to Skype

Skype

While Skype is a great service and leverages many of the same technologies as 2talk Cloud PBX, its primary value has always been the ability to chat and make on-net calls.

For Australian businesses, Skype has much less appeal as a land-line replacement, particularly within the Australian SME market. Skype’s landline calling is expensive, local calls are routed back through low-cost overseas destinations, it has no emergency numbers, limited support for multi-office IP routing all of which make Skype a tough call for Australian businesses.

Even under Microsoft’s ownership Skype will continue to be a great instant message client and to a lesser degree relatively cheap international calling service, but not a legitimate business substitute for business landline calling.
