Speakeasy's Free Phone Promotion Boosts Sales, Increasing New Customers by More Than 40 Percent

SEATTLE, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Speakeasy (www.speakeasy.net), one of the nation's leading broadband and voice service providers, has extended its free phone offer through the end of August, due to a record increase in leads and new customers. The free phone promotion, which was introduced to eliminate one of the last barriers to VoIP adoption, has spurred a more than 40 percent year-over-year increase in new customers.

One new customer, the Rofo Group, was able to deploy a customized business phone solution with no startup costs, thanks to Speakeasy's free phone promotion. The Rofo Group, which operates a specialized search engine geared toward helping companies find office space, was in the process of trying out another VoIP provider when they found themselves disappointed by the poor call quality. Speakeasy's free phone promotion, along with their guaranteed quality of service (QoS) inspired The Rofo Group to make the switch. In order to switch to Speakeasy before their trial period with their current VoIP provider was up, Speakeasy needed to move quickly. Speakeasy coordinated an accelerated voice installation in just two weeks.

"With the free phones offer, there were no up-front costs at all," explained Mike Garrity, COO at The Rofo Group. "Plus, Speakeasy provides an end-to-end solution including broadband, so they were able to guarantee the call quality we couldn't get with our previous provider."

Added Chris Gellos, Speakeasy's vice president of sales, "The cost savings aspect of this promotion – and VoIP in general – are great. But at the end of the day, what's most important is having consistently high quality calls. Because Speakeasy provides both voice and broadband, our customers experience the most reliable and dependable voice quality that VoIP can offer."

Speakeasy's free phone promotion provides free Polycom SoundPoint IP 321 VoIP-enabled phones to new business customers who purchase unlimited or global Hosted Voice calling plans and have a minimum of five lines. The promotion was introduced in March and will expire at the end of August.
