Choosing a SIP trunk provider for your business is a complicated decision, as you might not be aware of how the pricing is broken down or even what SIP trunking is. Here we will explain how SIP trunk pricing is broken down so that you can make an informed decision for your company.

How Does SIP Trunk Pricing Work?

SIP trunking pricing is usually broken down into four factors. The service brings VoIP capabilities to your office’s private branch exchange (PBX) system, improving and enhancing your office system. This means that you can transmit voice, video, and other unified communications over an internet connection and through your office’s internal phone system. Because these systems work over the cloud and the internet, businesses can save on equipment costs and more. So, what is the general pricing structure of a SIP trunk?

Based on which provider you choose for your SIP trunking needs, these are the factors that affect the cost of your SIP trunk:

Monthly subscription

  • You may pay monthly or annually per channel or virtual number in service.
  • Additionally, you may pay per user.

Outbound calling rates: Metered versus Unmetered?

  • This is the cost per call or per minute for outgoing calls.
  • Is your plan metered or unmetered?
  • Metered plans: monthly fee + per-minute charges for outbound calls
  • Unmetered plans: monthly fee + fixed priced unlimited calling

Add-ons or premium services

  • Some providers charge for add-ons such as Call Recording, SMS plans, etc.

Setup fees

  • Cost of additional equipment or setup fees.
