When making the decision to get an SIP from an SIP trunking provider in Singapore, in our opinion, the following should be considered.
Small Businesses (Can you pay as you scale?): Can the provider allow you to scale up, or scale down where necessary? There will be situations whereby you, after using an SIP, find that you might not need a higher capacity and need to downgrade, or even that you need it to be higher.
Hoiio allows you to scale up and down whenever you require.
