The benefits of IP phone service

With Xplornet’s new high-speed Internet services throughout the region, it’s now possible to connect phone access! Our VoIP phone service requires only an up-to-date connection and subscription to our Internet service.

For less than $ 20 per month, you can benefit from a complete residential telephone plan: unlimited calls, unlimited long-distance calls in the province, caller ID, voicemail, call waiting, and many other options are included! In addition, Xplornet offers you discount in the first few months so you can try it at a lower cost! And all this without commitment to a contract!

What is the big difference with a standard residential telephone line? THE PRICE! You pay less, and get more bonus services! What more could you ask for? All available even in remote areas! Since telephony access is linked to your Internet service, its availability is wide! With satellite Internet access in your area, it is available everywhere, whether you live in the city or in the countryside, on the water’s edge or very far away in the forest!

In addition, it is possible to have your current phone number transferred to keep it, or simply acquire a new local phone number! Please note that the number transfer is free of charge.

It is also possible to move your VoIP phone between two locations in case you have a second home. If one of the two locations has Xplornet services, the phone will work wherever you take it. Only one Internet access is required!

The 9-1-1 emergency service is functional, and no overcharging is applied to your monthly bill! 9-1-1 Emergency services offered with VoIP telephone systems differ from traditional 9-1-1 emergency services. The difference is that you will be routed to a third-party service provider who is directing your call to an emergency response centre instead of being directed to it. Quite simply!

You are not at home? You can reach your cell phone ringing the house. When you receive a call, it will ring on your cell phone (like call forwarding, but it will still ring at home if someone is there).
