Utility price comparison and procurement group Utility Watch UK has prepared a detailed hints and tips guide to advise SMEs on buying telecoms and/or mobile services.
The free document not only covers things to look for but also some of the more common pitfalls and covers issues such as fixed line rental, analogue/digital, call pricing, SIP trunks, VOIP options and Local Loop Unbundling.
How to proceed through the minefield of product choice and service options and how to identify the best kinds of contracts terms and rates are included, however the guide also points to a number of supplier practices which can leave SMEs at a disadvantage.
Some of the more common pitfalls are: minimum call charges, disadvantageous setup fees, automatic rollover contract terms, and minimum contractual spends. The guide tackles how best to deal with these.
