As a business owner, deciding on the right phone system can be a daunting task. Between PRI lines, SIP trunks, and VoIP, there are so many advantages and disadvantages to consider.

So what is a PRI line? PRI (Primary Rate Interface) is a digital telephone technology used for voice or data transmission. Just one PRI line will allow up to 30 people to talk simultaneously.
