MegaPath knows that most, if not all of the business customers it serves, still have a legacy installed PBX base that they aren't going to rip out anytime soon so the CLEC is offering them a way to overlay hosted VoIP services to their existing lines or trunks.
By leveraging MegaPath's overlay service, a business customer can ride out its PBX investment, while taking advantage of new features such as Remote Worker, Find Me/Follow Me, Simultaneous Ring, Auto Attendants and Hunt Groups. These are services that aren't typically available on older model PBX systems.
While MegaPath does not cite a specific customer in the announcement, the service provider claims that it can save customers, on average, 50 percent over what they pay for traditional phone services.
Complementing its integrated voice offering is new pricing for its 8 and 16 Integrated Line/Trunk service with T1 access. Available for single and bonded T1s with unlimited long distance options, customers can choose free 2-3 year equipment rental or buy the equipment on a one-year term.
