Frequently Asked Questions
What is Hosted PBX & VoIP?
Hosted PBX (Private Branch Exchange) is the modern version of the traditional telephone closet. The new hosted, or “cloud,” model puts the brains of your phone closet into professionally maintained data centers, helping businesses like yours to transform their communications and improve productivity without the need to purchase expensive, complex, depreciating phone system software and hardware. Your service providers manage and monitor your system 24×7, allowing you to focus on work.
VoIP refers to phone services that are accessible through a high quality broadband connection. VoIP is typically more cost effective and scalable than traditional alternatives. With both Hosted PBX and VoIP, you and your team can work from the office, home, or on the road, or through your smartphone, all while utilizing your company’s communications solution to help maintain and uplift your image and brand.
Can I keep my number?

It can take up to 60 days in extreme cases. Got2Connect does give you a temporary number while your porting is in process.

Do I need special equipment or a router on premise?
No additional telephone lines, PBX hardware, or installation are needed. Got2Connect will work with any high-speed, stable internet connection and requires a minimum of 64 kbps of bandwidth per call. You do need a router that will make the internet connection available to your phones/devices.
For best voice quality, we recommend a router that is QoS (Quality of Service) enabled. By configuring your QoS router to prioritize the voice traffic over other internet traffic, you’ll experience better voice quality when your internet is being used for other activities (e.g., downloading large files, watching online videos, etc.).
How do I connect my mobile phone to Got2Connect?
When you first launch the mobile app, you will be prompted to enter details for your Got2Connect account, including your Got2Connect username and password.
This allows you to receive and make calls using your Got2Connect account on your mobile phone. The setup procedure will differ slightly depending on your device’s operating system and the version of the app you are using.
