This combination or hardware and ring-u's integrated business class HD VoIP phone services makes this a "better phone system". These phones work together, and when managed by a Hello Hub, auto update displays and configurations as your phone system is used and grows. You will not have to configure each phone beyond putting the phones password (from a sticker on the phone) into the ring-u customer portal. You can also mix other phones and mobile phone apps into your system.
Works together as one cohesive system.
Techs are available and happy to assist.

Ensure you have a solid internet service. Latency and consistency is more important than upload/download speeds.
Check that you have enough network switch ports and cabling. Remember these phones can share an ethernet cable with a computer, it has a 2 port switch in it.
These phones also can operate via WiFi, no need to run a cable to every location!
If using WiFi, you will want a good WiFi access point.
You will want a high capacity firewall and ethernet switch.
Expected Monthly Costs:
It's hard to give an exact quote, because taxes and regulatory fees vary for every location. If all you need is 2 lines and our standard features your monthly bill will be 59.95 plus taxes and fees of about 5 to 10 dollars, expected: $66 to $70 per month for unlimited USA and Canada calling.
For a BUSY 8 extension system: estimate you have up to 8 incoming and outgoing calls at the same time, and set your system for 6 lines. That puts your monthly base bill at 159.75, your total would be less than $180 per month.
