We have been providing phone lines for business since 2008. In 2016 we started providing phone lines to Hutterite colonies in Western Canada. At that time many colonies were using a Voip service in Edmonton called "TheSpout" and at that time, the service suddenly shut down. They had very good pricing and a good plan that Hutterites were already familiar with and so we copied their plan to make it easier.
The Wholesale Plan
Our Hutterite wholesale plans always include 16 phone lines and one phone number for $3.50 / month (CAD). Usage is billed in addition. We support about 40 colonies at the moment and the per monthly cost ranges between $80 / month to $300 / month. Even at the most expensive colony, the average per line cost would be lower than any other practical provider. We're sure we provide a very well priced telephone service for Hutterites. Additional dedicated phone numbers can be added for $3.50 / month.'
Supported Phone Systems
We've provided Colony Direct Dial lines for a number of different phone systems including
- Engenius Durafon Analog
- Ag-Alarm Voice Dialer
About Intercolony Lines
The 65 - 80% of all Hutterite calls tend to be to other colonies. In an effort to help reduce calling costs and add convenince for all families, we have launched ColonyDirectDial. This Intercolony system allows you to call directly to other homes and shops at other colonies with dedicated phone number for everyone. The phone number do no bear a cost and there is no per-minute calls. In fact we provide the first two lines completely free with addtional lines costing $15 / month (CAD).
