Would you recommend your SIP trunking provider to a friend? See which providers came out on top in the Eastern Management Group's customer satisfaction study that surveyed more than 3,000 IT managers.
Today's $14 billion SIP trunking industry accounts for 58% of all network traffic, according to a new Eastern Management Group study. Underpinning the SIP trunk industry is a staggering number of vendors of all shapes and sizes, from tier-one carriers such as AT&T and BT to small niche resellers. For IT managers, vendor selection looks like the kid-in-a-candy-store problem. The difficulty comes with choosing.

More than 3,000 IT managers were surveyed in Eastern Management Group's SIP trunking customer satisfaction study. Before we reached the question about a recommendation to a friend, we first set the stage by having customers rate their SIP trunk vendor on nine different measurements.
