Talkroute or MightyCall?

Alternatives Talkroute vs MightyCall

When assessing the virtual telephony market, Talkroute is sort of like Grasshopper-lite. The systems are very similar, and Talkroute touts their use of the PSTN (public switched telephone network)—which is also the backbone of Grasshopper’s call connections. The majority of competitors on the market use a strictly VoIP-centered approach, which means a call’s quality depends directly on your internet connection. (MightyCall uses a bit of both to give you options depending on your location.)

No matter how much you pay, you can’t get features like:

Those features are all dynamic enough to visibly influence your business; we aren’t talking about periphery features that only would be useful in specific situations, but MVP features that most in the industry charge extra for.

On MightyCall’s $39 plan, you get 5 numbers, unlimited calling,  unlimited extensions, unlimited texting, deskphones & softphones support and admittedly, but you also get all the features on Talkroute’s $59 plan (and even on their $99 plan) and more for less money. There simply isn’t a choice here at all.

If you want a plain old call forwarding number without any extra oomph, Talkroute isn’t bad, but if you want an actual virtual phone system with useful features, it won’t deliver results for you like most other virtual phone systems.
