Beware of Sneaky Rate Increases, says nojitter.com
“Ignoring pricing on traditional voice and local services even after a SIP or VoIP migration is a mistake best avoided with regular inventory reviews.” AT ATC, we see this all the time and some clients have even realized more than 30% savings on TDM services.
More callouts from No Jitter:
- While many enterprise businesses have been busy planning technology migrations, service providers have been quietly increasing list rates on traditional services.
- Following a SIP or VoIP migration, there is still some amount of traditional TDM voice usage as well as traditional business lines that remain in place for things like alarm services. So if you’ve decided that it’s alright to ignore pricing on such services, you are going to see your costs increase over time as the gap between what you are paying and negotiated market rates increases.
- It is very typical for sophisticated enterprise clients to be 30% off-market for TDM services they are purchasing because the provider has done a great job of convincing them that they are no longer important. Again, it is common for clients that have completed their SIP migrations to find that they don’t have “zero” TDM volumes at the end of the transition.
