*Note: Costs and information mentioned in this article are current at the time of publishing and may be subject to changes.
1. Extent of Global Coverage
Both RingCentral and Global Call Forwarding have pretty extensive coverage. However, RingCentral provides service in over 110 countries, while Global Call Forwarding covers more than 160 countries. In fact, we can provide hard-to-reach phone service in remote and rural areas where toll-free services are not readily available.
View our Country Coverage page to see the extent of our global voice coverage.
2. Browsable Inventory
Both Global Call Forwarding and RingCentral allow you to browse through their inventory to find the phone number you want. However, Global Call Forwarding displays their inventory clearly on the Pricing page, while you need to navigate to a few different pages before you find RingCentral’s phone number inventory.
3. Support and Account Management
Even though RingCentral has multiple plans, the base plan has limited features and support. RingCentral only offers 24/7 support (unlimited chat and phone) from its second-tier plan onwards. On the other hand, Global Call Forwarding sets you up with a dedicated account manager and 24/7 support no matter which plan you choose.

4. RingCentral Pricing Model
Like most cloud-based phone service providers, RingCentral bills on a “per user per month” basis. On top of this, you can get add-ons and premium services at additional costs. These additional costs can creep up and lead to an expensive monthly phone bill. However, Global Call Forwarding only charges per month. This keeps your monthly bill straightforward and predictable.
Choosing the Right RingCentral Alternative
While both RingCentral and Global Call Forwarding offer similar cloud phone services, they differ in the range of features they provide. RingCentral focuses on bringing you a contact center-type package, while Global Call Forwarding offers specific phone services applicable to businesses of all sizes. To decide what type of phone solution you should get, you must determine your needs and budget.
