Portal Network Co is a telecommunications company that was founded very recently in 2014. For the lack of experience they have under their built they make up for with an outlook that outreaches for the future. Portal Network Co specializes in helping startup businesses with the footing they need for all of their telecommunication needs. They provide business phone services, business internet as well as residential phone services. Their specialties lie in business growth, Cloud PBX, data solutions, PBX hosting and many other exciting things. Let us now review one of the Portal Network Co’s residential home phone plans to grasp a better picture of their services.
Portal Network Co offers a residential VoIP phone service which they call the Home Phone Premium. This plan comes with 1,000 long distance minutes to over 50 countries across the globe, unlimited dialing across North America, and a variety of exciting calling features. The price tag on this plan comes out at a flat $29.95 per month before taxes. Their Home Phone plus plan is exactly the same however doesn’t offer the 1,000 long distance minutes and is priced at $22.50 per month – meaning you’d get unlimited North America dialing for $22.50 per month. PhonePower also offers an unlimited North America wide plan which costs a total of $7.40 per month, which is a vast difference between what Portal Network Co is asking for. The 1,000 long distance minutes in the premium plan essentially equate to an added 6 dollars per month which aren’t all that bad but there are definitely better options available.
Portal Network Co is one of the few VoIP providers that offer voicemail and voicemail to email services inclusive of their plan. They also offer advanced call routing as well as a bunch of calling features such as caller ID and call waiting. However, it is important to note that the 1,000 long distance minutes provided do not cover mobile phone calling – it is only applicable to landline calling. Furthermore, there are numerous places excluded from unlimited North America dialing aspect of the plan – Hawaii, Alaska, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Yukon.
Portal Network Co certainly seems to be trying to offer a unique and flexible plan, however, it backfires on them with the insanely high pricing structure. Many other VoIP providers find it easier to lay off the long distance dialing to provide plans with lower charges, however, even with that plan the pricing is just too high. The features being provided with the service, however, are definitely commendable and it is rare to find providers who are willing to go above and beyond in regards to features.
