Data, voice and managed services provider Colt has launched what it claimed is Europe’s first flat rate IP telephony service for business.
Colt said that its new IP voice service brings simple, flat rate pricing to the European business market for the first time and eliminates capital expenditure.
The service offers all local, national and international calls within Colt countries for a flat rate, per-user, per-month fee of €24.50 (£16.66).
Businesses do not have to purchase, house or maintain a PBX (onsite telephone system) as all functions are provided by the Colt network and delivered over the customer's local area network. Handsets and features are covered by an additional flat rate per-user, per-month fee of €20.
"It is about time for businesses to benefit from the same simple, flat rate pricing that consumers have enjoyed for some time," said Jean-Yves Charlier, chief executive, Colt.
"Now that IP telephony is proven, we have harnessed the best VoIP technology and our advanced European network to offer a radical package to businesses across Europe.
"We are transforming voice services for businesses across Europe, by offering a package that cuts out capex, drives down costs and provides greater flexibility and functionality for businesses and their users."
