Business Telephone Lines

We can provide traditional business phone lines along with a full suite of business service calling features such as voicemail, caller id, etc. Contact us for more information (218) 444-1234.

Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) primary rate interface, or simply a PRI, is a single line, usually a T‐1, with 23 voice channels (and a single data channel), that allows your business to hold 23 calls simultaneously. This is not always equivalent to the number of phone numbers a business has. Your business may have 100 phone numbers that are directed to come across a single PRI, however, you will only be allowed to hold 23 phone conversations at once.
ISDN PRI allocates your bandwidth automatically for each transmission on a call‐by‐call basis. Outbound trunks won't be idle while inbound trunks are nearing capacity. ISDN PRI can also help eliminate the need for regular business phone lines and dedicated voice or data lines.

SIP Trunking can be a great alternative for powering voice calls to your IP phone system. In short, SIP Trunking is a method of sending your voice connection over a data line, and therefore is commonly referred to as VOIP (voice over internet protocol). SIP Trunking allows you to purchase only the number of call paths that you need, and can be easily scaled up or down.

Our business internet and data services are not limited to our residential service territory. Our fiber network extends across north central and northeastern Minnesota allowing us to provide business services to many towns and cities both inside and outside of our residential service territory.*
