Good "OnSIP.com is a great affordable Hosted PBX"
- Location: San Jose,Santa Clara,CA
- Cost Contract price not specified.
Bad "doesn't support TCP registration; only caters to businesses"
Overall "a great option to keep in your arsenal"
Ease of Installation:
Value for money:
I've signed up with OnSIP.com after being dissatisfied that Callcentric only allowed one single SIP device to be registered at any given time.
Without any monthly fees and without any introductory periods, OnSIP allows you to have your own hosted PBX with some limited free functionality, with the OnSIP à la carte package.
You can create multiple users on your PBX for free, specify multiple extensions for each user etc. Subsequently, you can simultaneously have each user's account registered on more than one device (unlike with Callcentric), so, it helps greatly if you have more than one SIP phone, yet want all your SIP phones to be tied up to the same account.
The interface is very intuitive, and you can't beat the price. The only feature that I find missing from the free account is the ability to have at least one free group, too. Right now, creating users is entirely free, but if you'd like to create a group, such that multiple users would be rang simultaneously, then you'd have to pay 14,95 USD per month (and for such a steep price, as far as the business side is concerned, the group is still limited to merely 10 users!). Seems a bit steep for a budget residential customer that would merely like to have an individual account per each SIP device, yet have all devices ring simultaneously. Callcentric only allows simultaneous ring on 3 devices, so, I ended up having to share one OnSIP account on more than one device: it works, but not as cool as I'd like it to be.
