Business Lines provide standard analogue access to Spark’s reputable Public Switched Telecom Network (PSTN). It is ideal for small businesses who can use it to make and receive telephone calls and/or faxes, as well as link to the internet.
It can be used as a standalone telephone line or combined with other business lines to create a trunk or hunting/series completion group.
A number of useful services such as call minder, direct dial in and three-way calling can be added to provide your customers with effective call management tools.
It is easy to set up a new installation as well as re-assign an existing line from another provider.
And as the service is basic, it allows you to package it with your other services, such as internet access, toll calls and international calls.
