UPDATE: Vonage acquired Vocalocity in 2013
Vonage and Vocalocity are Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service providers with unlimited and per-minute monthly plans for small-business customers.
Vonage vs. Vocalocity: Business VoIP Plan Overview
While the bulk of Vonage's VoIP services and plans are focused on the residential consumer, Vonage does offer two business voice over IP plans for small businesses. These business VoIP plans are:
- Small Business Premium Unlimited, $49.99/month
- Small Business Basic 1500 (3.9¢ per minute after 1500 minutes reached), $39.99/month
Vonage's business voice over IP plans are not hosted PBX plans. They do not offer PBX service or standard business VoIP features such as an automated attendant or call routing.
Vocalocity, on the other hand, is exclusively a business VoIP service provider. Vocalocity's business voice over IP services include a hosted Public Branch Exchange (PBX) and business-centric efficiency features such as call park, 2 GB of online backup/storage, and click-to-dial integration with browsers and Outlook. Vocalocity's hosted PBX service is typically designed for small businesses with 50 or fewer employees.
In the business-focused war of Vonage vs. Vocalocity, Vocalocity edges out Vonage slightly with its three business VoIP service plans:
- Unlimited Extension, $39.99/month per extension
- Virtual Extension, $14.99/month per extension
- Metered Extension, $14.99/month per extension
