Acupuncture practice: Telecommunications

Your business will need at least one telephone line to handle calls from patients and to contact suppliers. It would be very useful to have an email address. A website is a good way to advertise your business.

The telephone company will bill you every month or quarter for the calls you have made, often plus an amount for the line rental for the next quarter.

Many different internet service providers (ISPs) offer internet connections, email accounts and related services. Shop around to find out what the best deal for you would be.

You may decide that you need mobile phones as well as land lines. Again, there are many different deals available offering different options and payment plans to the user.

Various packages and discount structures are available to business users, which can help to reduce telecommunications costs. Contact your telephone company's customer services department for details.
