Why We Started Business Tech Planet

At Optionbox and Optionbox Networks, we get asked a lot of questions about our solutions, as you can imagine. Unfortunately, they’re not always questions we want to answer on our own website. For example, whether or not VoIP works without the internet. So we decided to found Business Tech Planet to answer these questions in an informative and detailed way, with no commercial intent. This site is purely about informing people and businesses on what technology is and how it works.

We hope that you find our blog to be a useful resource, so thank you for reading!
