Phone System Costs
When discussing the cost phone systems, wiring and installation, purchasing the actual phones, the system itself (cabinet), optional accessories, and monthly service charges must all be considered.

Key systems can cost anywhere from $300 to $1,000 per employee. The features your business will require play a major role in the pricing for this type of system.
PBX systems start at around $800, but you will generally pay an average of $1000 per employee for this system. If your business has at least 100 employees, the cost PBX phone systems may be less, due to scaling.
KSU-less systems are usually the least expensive type of phone system because the only things you will be paying for are setup, installation, and the telephones themselves. Telephones for this type of system usually range from $100 to $250 per phone.
VoIP systems will cost around the same as a KSU-less system, however, these types of systems require a router, which can increase the amount of money you will have to spend. A KSU-less telephone can be used with this type of system with the purchase of an adaptor, or, you can purchase a VoIP phone, which range from about $100 to $250.
