Talkgroups Provide The Ultimate In Flexibility

Exponential progression of Handset to Talkgroup ratio (i.e., need more and more handsets to justify additional free Talkgroups).

Minimum: 5 active Handsets under the Subscriber Organization to get 1 Free Talkgroup

Cannot receive Free Talkgroup if only have 1 or 2 Handsets (as that is seen as an attempt to bypass Standard Telephony costs)

  • 5 Handsets = 1 Free Talkgroup (5:1 ratio)
  • 10 Handsets = 1 Free Talkgroup (10:1 ratio)
  • 50 Handsets = 2 Free Talkgroups (25:1 ratio)
  • 500 Handsets = 5 Free Talkgroups (100:1 ratio)
