Sending faxesThere are costs involved in sending faxes.
To send a fax, clients will need to pay a deposit into a pre-paid fax account, which is depleted as faxes are sent.
It costs less to send a fax from the email-to-fax service than it is to use a standard land-line or mobile phone to send a fax.
Rates are cheaper than Talkom rates. The system uses LCR (Least cost routing), giving you the cheapest rates to the various numbers, thereby saving you money.
