no capital cost other than the purchase of desk phones
business-class features beyond those available from other VoIP Service Providers

lower costs than traditional alternatives
  GLOPEX softswitch can provides all of the power and efficiency of your own PBX without the cost or maintenance issues.

full IP-Centrex Service from CA$39.95/mo
automated attendant with night service
caller ID
Direct Inward Dial (DID) numbers to designated extensions
multiple call appearances (ability for a single phone to have several calls on hold at the same time)

voicemail (unlimited number of messages; email and pager notification, message waiting indicator)

some signaling services requires that the IP phone set supports it
  Equivalent service is simply not available from Telus so comparison pricing is not possible but a single business phone line with just the ten of the above eighteen features which are available from Telus would cost $91.11/month/line.
  Our service costs only $39.95/month/extension (plus set-up).
