<p>PRESS RELEASE: Sydney April 14</p>
<p>• gotalk today announced dramatic cost saving “step change” technology for small and medium business customers with a PBX handling four lines or more to save up to 65% on national and international calls.
• gotalk’s Multiline VoIP will allow SME Business customers with a PBX to use the internet to make these same calls, with huge savings on call costs, while maintaining call quality even at times of high network usage.</p>
<p>gotalk CEO Steve Picton said today his fast growing trans Tasman telco expected this new communications service to be “hugely popular” with small and medium business owners looking for ways to cut operating costs in the months to come.</p>
<p>“In the current economic downturn, a cost saving service such as the gotalk Multi Line VoIP service will revolutionize the way small and medium businesses control their costs of communication without compromising efficiency,” CEO Steve Picton said today.</p>
<p>“For Businesses with 4 Lines or more, the new gotalk Multiline VoIP service will change the way small and medium business customers make – and pay for – their local, national and international calls, together with calls to Australian mobiles with call savings of up to 65%.”</p>
<p>Innovative Trans Tasman telco gotalk has been providing market leading VoIP (internet telephony) services since 2005 and most recently won the prestigious Money Magazine 2009 “Cheapest VoIP Plan – Business User” for a SOHO VoIP plan - providing further evidence of gotalk’s on-going commitment to best value VoIP solutions, Mr. Picton said.</p>
<p>gotalk’s VoIP Multiline service enables business customers with a PBX to make large savings because they no longer need all their PBX trunks, and can enjoy low VoIP calling rates to local, national, international and mobile calling destinations.</p>
<p>Unlike the larger telco players, gotalk offers multiline VoIP solutions designed to enable all PBX calls to be made through the internet, rather than the traditional telephone network.</p>
<p>“We are making it easier for businesses to make large savings by replacing incoming PBX lines with a broadband connection. This reduces the monthly line rental cost of PBX lines, and enables large call usage savings to be made, by making VoIP calls instead of landline calls,” Mr. Picton said.</p>
<p>“gotalk’s new Multiline VoIP business plans enable businesses to retain their current phone numbers including FREE Direct in Dial numbers, offer FREE calls between gotalk multi-line VoIP customers as well as exceptionally low calling rates,” Mr Picton said. “We have a range of multi-line VoIP plans to suit most businesses.”</p>
<p>“This is particularly exciting news for small and medium businesses with a PBX, many of whom have been starved of communication competition in the recent past. In these tough economic times, the gotalk multiline VoIP service coupled with gotalk Broadband ensures high quality calls by prioritising voice communications to maintain call quality, even at times of high network usage.”</p>
<p>“gotalk is gearing up for what is expected to be high demand for its new multiline VoIP service, and has partnered with leading Systems Integrators and Value Added Resellers to ensure a customized solution fully meeting customer communications needs is delivered nationally,” said Mr Picton.
“gotalk’s Super Speed Broadband is the perfect companion to the gotalk Multiline VoIP service - our goVoIP Business customers can now choose from 21 broadband plans priced from a low $29.95 per month. Our Super Speed 8Mbps and ADSL2+ plans are now available to more than 90% of the Australian businesses, ensuring efficient communications at our lowest possible prices.” Picton said.
