NORTH STONINGTON - The town is in the process of buying a new phone system. The Board of Selectmen authorized information technology manager James Russell to contract with Teleworks Communications to install a new voice-over-internet protocol (VOIP) system at a cost of $4,900.
The move will reduce monthly billing for phone service to $331 and save the town about $90 a month, or about $1,080 in the first year.
That’s a 22% return on the investment of $4,900.
The move replaces all the dedicated Comcast phone lines and all the desk phones in the town hall and its outposts. All calls will be internet-based now.
At its Feb. 14th special meeting, the selectmen chose Teleworks Communications in Glastonbury, CT, from the 20 quotes the town received from its request-for-proposals.
