Top 100 VoIP Providers World Ranking
The Top 100 VoIP Providers World Ranking is an ongoing comparison and ranking of the top VoIP providers worldwide.
The Top 100 VoIP Provider comparison table will help you choose the best VoIP phone service for your home or business. A few of the providers listed below are not yet available in all countries. We've done our best to indicate which providers are available in which areas.
Top 100 Ranking Criteria
Our Top 100 is ranked based on user reviews, market segment, provider size, and price.
We tend to rank business VoIP providers ahead of residential and wholesale providers and providers with more reviews higher than providers with fewer reviews. It’s a lot more difficult to get 100+ reviews (even if they’re mostly negative) than it is to get 2 5-star reviews.
Additionally, providers on the MVP Top 100 ranking must be currently in business, otherwise they risk ending up in our VoIP graveyard.
The Best VoIP Provider for You
One question we get asked a lot is “What is the best VoIP provider?”
Honestly, it’s a complex answer. There are too many variable factors to pick just one. However, we have some questions that can help you narrow your search:
- Which country are you in?
- Where and why will you use the VoIP provider's service?
- How many people will your phone system? How many phones will you use?
- How many international calls do you make every month?
- Do you have specific features you need to use?
- How much are you willing to pay?
Choosing the Right Type of VoIP Service
There are three major types of VoIP service providers:
Choose the service that is appropriate for your calling needs — seriously. Residential VoIP plans are cheaper than business VoIP plans because: (1) they have fewer features and (2) residential phones are used less frequently than business phones. Don’t use a residential VoIP service for a home-based business unless you’re willing to pay overage fees or to have your VoIP service canceled. VoIP providers are serious about enforcing their Fair Use guidelines.
Wholesale VoIP services are good if you need to run your own service provider, set up a calling card, or run a call center. Note: most business VoIP providers can offer some kind of call center software.
Number of Users and Number of Phones
Know how many users/phones you will have on your VoIP phone system. Most business VoIP providers charge per extension, so knowing how many extensions you will need is important for determining which VoIP provider offers you the best deal.
The number of phones is also important. If you have phones in your conference room or your break room that are not used very often, you probably don’t need those phones to be fully-featured extensions.
Features and International Calls
Each provider will disclose international calling rates on their website and a list of features on their website. We give a standardized list for each provider (with explanations on our VoIP Calling Features page) but providers experiment with different features all the time. Check their website (using a link on their details page) to verify how each feature works.
You can use our quote request form at the top of the page if you’d like us to pair up with providers that best fit your needs. Unfortunately, we don’t generate quotes for residential VoIP providers at this time. Still, whether you’re looking for residential or business service, you can rest assured that you’ll save hundreds to thousands of dollars a year once you’ve switched to IP phone service.
