Overall Rating: 8.8 / 10 (Excellent)

Nextiva's business phone systems plans offer great, reliable service for the price. What's more, all plans, except for metered SIP trunking, offer unlimited minutes. The two high end plans are particularly feature rich, providing first rate conference bridging, advanced team features and call management, and supervisory control functions. As large, enterprise-level business phone providers go, Nextiva delivers most everything you'd expect, and does it at a relatively low price.
