What are some frequently asked questions?
Q. Does my price increase after the term?
A. When your contract is coming to an end, you will have the opportunity to re-up for the same term and receive the same pricing, or you will have the option to go month to month. If you decide to go month to month this may affect your seat pricing.
Q. What is my price per seat if I add more users in the future?
A. PanTerra offers an on-demand solution. When you add or subtract users the price per seat will remain the same.
Q. What does On-Net/Off-Net mean?
A. On-Net is considered PanTerra Streams Users. Off-Net means that they have not created a user on the Streams platform. You can invite users to join streams for free with our freemium license and they will be considered On-Net.
Q. How does the multi-year one-time credit get applied?
A. The Multi-Year Contract Credit will be applied on your first invoice towards your 1st month’s charges. Depending on the size of your credit this may cover your entire 1st invoice. Please see your quote for more details.
Q. How do you calculate taxes and fees?
A. Taxes and fees are calculated based on your physical address and the tax code for that address.
Q. What is the Regulatory Recovery Fee (RRF)?
A. The RRF is intended to recover increased VoIP provider operating costs due to local, state, and federal regulatory compliance. RRF is separate from government taxes and fees.
Q. What is the Hardware as a Service (HaaS) program and how does it work?
A. The HaaS Program is a perpetual phone program that allows you to always have the newest version of the hardware. Every year you can do a hardware refresh and select a new device, by downgrading, upgrading, or just getting a newer model of the same unit.

What are PanTerra Network customers saying?
The PanTerra Network’s platform has been built in-house from the ground up. That may seem like a small thing, but we hear from customers all the time how restrictive other platforms are. Here’s what they love about PanTerra:
Faster Support Resolution
If a technical issue is discovered and requires a code change to resolve, our engineering team can take the necessary steps immediately. Our customers aren’t forced to wait until a third-party platform provider diagnoses, confirms, and (hopefully) prioritizes the issue.
Our Customers Have a Voice
PanTerra’s product roadmap is heavily influenced by customer requests and suggestions. While the majority of UCaaS providers today have hitched their wagon to a platform developed by someone else, PanTerra maintains full control over the design and evolution of our product line. Suggestions that would get lost in a flood of submissions can, and often do make their way into the services we offer.
Long Term Stability
Today’s UCaaS news is dominated by M&A activity. PanTerra has focused on building our own platform from day one, allowing our customers to avoid the risk associated with having a primary service provider who is dependent on another service provider to deliver their full complement of features. Nobody can turn off any of PanTerra’s features because a business arrangement has changed.
Large Deal Flexibility
PanTerrra has a history of customizing our offering to better meet the needs of larger accounts. With full control in-house, we can offer a solution truly tailored to fit specific situations. We put this type of commitment in writing also! You don’t just get a promise and a smile. We will document the agreed-upon changes and delivery schedule with the ability for the customer to opt-out if either is not fulfilled as stated.
