Beanfield Metroconnect provides home phone services as well as internet solutions to condos and apartment buildings across Canada. They operate only on the fiber optic medium, which means they provide extremely high speeds at lower costs when compared to internet service providers who offer their services to homes as well. The only downside to any internet service that offers connections to condos or apartments only is whether or not that building supports fiber optic cabling. Beanfield also provides home phone and business phone services as well, making it a very versatile telecommunications provider. Nonetheless, Beanfield Metroconnect goes the extra mile by offering to set up fiber optic capabilities for buildings that do not have it. The headquarters of Beanfield can be found at 77 Mowat Ave, Toronto, M6K 3E3. Let us now take a look at the business phone plan that beanfield has to offer to see how it fairs against the competition.
Beanfield offers a standard business phone plan which allows customers to dial anywhere in Canada for the price of $24.99 per month. The plan has unlimited dialing time and can be availed with a multitude of features. However, this plan’s pricing is certainly quite high in comparison to the competition that Beanfield has to face. For example, RingCentral offers a standardized business VoIP solution for only $19.99 per month. The difference of only five dollars may not seem much at first, but over the course of a few years, it can save customers a lot of money. However, the variety of the features that are included in this business plan may actually be worth more than the five extra dollars!
Of the many features that Beanfield includes with their business VoIP plan, the ones that stand out are Visual Voicemail, and FindMe or FollowMe, which is an app that allows the user to forward calls to multiple locations or can send calls to multiple numbers in a particular sequence until it is answered. These features are quite unique in comparison to other business providers and are also very business friendly tools. These features certainly make up for the five dollar difference between RingCentral and Beanfield.
Beanfield’s residential plan lacks a multitude of the features that we usually find in other providers who offer residential VoIP services, however, the features and pricing of their business plan are certainly spot on. Perhaps the only thing that makes RingCentral stand out is the fact that they offer a North America wide plan, rather than just a Canada wide plan like Beanfield!
