8. If my team uses Bria softphones with UniTel Voice Office, am I still paying less than other similar business VoIP providers?

In almost every case, yes.

Let’s walk through the pricing:

The recommended Bria softphones range in price from Free to $4.95/month per user. 

The UniTel Voice Office plan includes up to 5 users for $49 per month and you can add more users to your Office plan at any time for just $9.99/month per user. 

So, even if you selected the more advanced Bria softphone, you’d still be paying less than $15 per user before taxes. And that’s month-to-month with no long-term contracts locking you in. 

Simple setup. No long term contracts. 30-day money back guarantee.
