Hosted telephony, on the other hand, has had a tough time since its birth.
The system works favorably today compared to the past. The system is commonly referred to as the cloud in the recent years. Telephony had to take at least three decades before it was rendered as a credible source of communication.Due to the development of a faster broadband which is more reliable, it is considered as the best for both domestic and business use since it comes at a low cost of usage. By 2015, more than 200 million subscribers were recorded. This service was described as brilliant by many communication experts.

Since the phone is not limited to any service, the phone can work out of the box. There is an increased in high audio calls due to the increased technology. In many countries around the world, telephony works as the most dominant form of service. The system hit the four million users mark in the United Kingdom back in 2015.
Today, the system has risen to at least six million subscribers. In the recent years, most of the companies have participated in the purchasing of a phone system. Immediately after the system is installed, it is usually attached to telephone lines and other extensions. It is then the obligation of the company to hire an expert to maintain the system for them. However, the system has thrived due to advantages such as scalability, low capital investment and compatibility with other devices.
