Telepacific is a carrier that TTM has worked with for years. They are a West Coast company focused on California and Nevada predominantly. There are several things about Telepacific that distinguish it in our minds currently as the best option for some companies:
- Telepacific has the best prices on a PRI that we can find. As much as I hate to say this, right now it seems that Comcast finally has their business class internet "up to speed," (22M/5M for $99/mo) and for the price, it's almost impossible to beat. With a $300 PRI from TPac, you have lightening fast internet and 23 channels for phone - all for $400/month (+ usage)
- Telepacific has really inexpensive T1's with analogue channels, starting at under $400 for 5 channels.
- Telepacific has a cool feature that gives your company station to staion dialing - without having a VoIP connection - between multiple locations. It's like $10-$40/month extra...small change when you think of all the money you'll save on your phone bill.
- Telepacific doesn't charge for installs. Now, this may not seem like a big deal, but seriously...what else could you do with $500 besides give it to AT&T? (hint: call Scott...he'll help you with this)
So, what does this mean for you?
If you are a company with more than 10 phones and you do moderate to high calling, including long distance and you need fast internet - then this is the space for you to inhabit: $300 23-channel PRI from TPac and a $99 22/5M cable internet connection from Comcast.
TPac also has a bundle of minutes - 42,000 for $850. So, with multiple locations you could get the PRI's and then share a bundle of 42,000 minutes between several sites and save a ton of money over what you're probably paying now - and you don't need to screw around with VoIP just yet...
