Top 100 VoIP Provider World Ranking
The Top 100 VoIP Provider World Ranking is an ongoing comparison and ranking of the top VoIP providers worldwide.
To find the right VoIP service for your home or business, start by comparing VoIP business services. Or, if you are in the market for residential service, start by comparing residential VoIP service, pricing, convenience, as well as VoIP equipment scenarios and options. With the Top 100 VoIP Provider comparison table, you'll find answers on hardware and software including on-premise PBX, hosted PBX, SIP trunking, and international calling rates. Whether you're in the market for a business VoIP solution or you want to know if a provider offers PC-to-phone caling from a DSL connection, this table will help you choose the best VoIP phone service for your home or business. You can see what a top tier provider like RingCentral offers compared to an up-and-coming provider.
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. Some of these providers don't offer the cheapest VoIP, but they do offer some of the best.
Top 100 Ranking Criteria
For the most part, our Top 100 is ranked based on user reviews, market segment, provider size, and price. We used to rank providers simply by price – but price alone isn’t the most helpful ranking criteria.
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.
Providers on the MVP Top 100 VoIP providers ranking must be currently in business, as well. To see a few VoIP providers that have gone out of business, make sure to check out our VoIP graveyard.

Best VoIP Provider
One question we get asked a lot at myvoipprovider.com is “Which is the Best VoIP provider?”
The best is “it depends.” It depends on your location and what you need from your phone system. We’ve got 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 a VoIP Provider in Your Country
It's important to find a local provider. That way your provider will give you the best experience. Ideally, you would want to find a provider in your city, but at the very least you want one in your country.
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.
If you want a list of the best VoIP providers (by quality and quantity of reviews only) check our best VoIP providers page. The Top 100 is a list of the top VoIP providers but it takes into account more factors than just the quality of reviews.
If you'd only like to look at price, look at our list of cheapest VoIP providers on this page of the cheapest VoIP service.
If you’d rather not do any work yourself, you can use our quote request form at the top of the page. We don’t generate quotes for residential VoIP providers (the prices on our residential VoIP compare table are equal to any quote that a residential VoIP provider would give you) but we can get you a quote for business VoIP services – even for international businesses.
