Frequently Asked Questions

What hardware will I require on-site?

As the phone system is hosted at one of our data centres the only equipment required on-site would be your handset.

How much bandwidth do I require?

A single call takes 90KB of bandwidth, this can be reduced to 30KB by compressing the call.

Can I port my number from my current supplier eg. BT?

Yes we can port numbers from your current supplier as we have porting agreements in place with most major number providers.

What phones does Wavetel Hosted PBX support?

We support Yealink, Cisco, Polycom VoIP phones and Counterpath softphones. Any analog or cordless phone can also be supported using a Linksys PAP2 analog telephone adapter. See our entire phone selection on our website.

What are my payment options?

We accept credit cards and invoices for payment.

How long does it take to activate a new account?

Your account is created immediately after you register but activated after review by an account manager. Your free phones will arrive in 5 to 7 business days (depending on shipping method).
