Analog and Digital Telephones Pricing and Costs
How to get the leading rates on analog and digital telephones
Analog telephones have been around a long time, making it easy to find an inexpensive analog phone. Most analog business telephones cost between $50 and $150 for multiple lines, caller identification and answering machines. Analog conference systems are typically more expensive, priced between $200 and $400.
Digital phones, on the other hand, are a good opportunity for most businesses to save money on their telephone service, especially if you do a lot of long distance or international calling. The cost difference for digital phones is not in the phone itself, but rather in the cost for the service, which is conducted through digital Internet rather than the phone line.
When calculating analog and digital telephones pricing and costs, consider the following sources:
- Browse analog phones for basic business purposes;
- Consider more expensive analog systems for more conferencing options;
- Save money on monthly service for digital phones.
Find a range of prices for analog telephones for business
Analog telephone systems for business need a range of basic functions, such as multiple lines and voice mailboxes. These features are available on most analog phones, and the number of lines or mailboxes is typically the main factor that influences the price of an analog phone.
Get more features from conference systems for analog phones
Analog phones also are available with more advanced business telephone systems featuring high quality speakerphones and easy to use multiple party connections. Because of these advanced features, teleconference systems typically cost several hundred dollars, but your cost for service can be reduced by connecting analog conference systems to a digital telephone service.
Save money every month on a digital phone service
A digital business phone system is a good choice for your company if you make a large volume of calls, especially long-distance or international calls, since digital phone services use your digital Internet connection rather than a phone line to connect. The price for digital phones themselves is comparable to the cost for analog, and a converter can also be used to connect your existing phones to a new digital service.
