Telus was the original telephone provider in Vancouver


Telus enjoyed tremendous success as the stand-alone option for small business phone services. If you were in Vancouver and needed a phone line, Telus was your only option.

As a monopoly, Telus was not required to invest in small business features or innovations for many years. That was until 1995 when VoIP was first introduced. As with any technology, the first VoIP services struggled with a barrage of problems. The quality was awful, with continuous problems like echo sounds and dropped calls. It took several years before VoIP was reliable enough for small business usage.


The Big Secret Telus Doesn’t Want You To Know

VoIP providers like B1 Communications save businesses 40%-50% on traditional telephone services. There are 4 major advantages to switching to VoIP and Telus doesn’t want you to know about them.

4 VoIP Features Telus Doesn’t Want You To Know About


1. Plug-in Your Phones Anywhere

Unlike traditional telephone lines which are installed with a PBX system. VoIP phones can be plugged into any high-speed internet connection. You can literally take a telephone around the world, plug it in and make calls from your local office phone number. Location independent telephones give you the power to make decisions without limitations. Take your phone to Thailand for a month, your customers would never know..

2. Office Calls To Your Mobile Phone

You aren’t always at your desk when important telephone calls come in. Perhaps you’re at the coffee shop, or traveling between meetings. We can automatically transfer unanswered telephone calls to your mobile phone, or even another office.

3. Get Voicemail As Email

Instead of having to be at your desk, pressing prompts and listen to voicemail messages in chronological order & having to replay messages to write down numbers or information, we send you an MP3 file to your inbox, putting you in control.

4. No Expensive Telephone Equipment ( On-site PBX )

Traditional phone systems require an on-premise PBX which controls the call routing and greetings. VoIP services offer Hosted PBX or ‘Cloud PBX’ which is included in the monthly telephone plan.


As you can see there are numerous advantages of switching from traditional telephone service providers like Telus, to small business VoIP providers. The future is bright for business VoIP as more small businesses switch providers. Ask our Vancouver based team how your business can start taking advantage of VoIP  features and flexibilities.
