A lot of ordinary phone need a separate power connection so they too would fail. As VoIP also relies on your internet connection, if your broadband router has no power, your phone won’t work either. You can set the system so external calls direct to your mobile or land line in these extreme situations.
This can be set up so in cases like this calls get forwarded to a mobile number instead.
We do not recommend putting fax machines on VoIP lines and would suggest putting it on the PSTN line which hosts your ADSL and/or use our Fax2Email service.

It depends on how many calls you expect to have at anyone time and whether you want more than one line out or in. One number gives you 2 calls, Two numbers gives you 4 calls either in or out and so on.
The extra number obtained to gain extra lines in or out doesn’t have to be used, the number only acts a mean to gain more lines.
We provide a number in your local geographical area (01 or 02), or you can choose memorable number from £20 + VAT, with Gold Silver & Bronze costing more. We also provide Spanish numbers.

On an ADSL line with 256k upstream, you can get 3 to 4 concurrent calls. When using our service in a busy office of up to 10 people, customers typically dedicate one broadband service to their phone provision.
