Internet Fax Reviews & Prices

Like just about everything else, the fax has gone online. Faxing is still a popular method for sending documents, but it no longer requires a separate piece of equipment, nor does it require reams of paper. Internet fax services have taken care of all that, allowing you to send and receive faxes right from your computer. Most of these services also have special regulations regarding HIPAA compliance. There are as many differences between Internet fax services as there are providers, including the free faxes included with each plan. All the providers we reviewed offer a certain number of complimentary transmissions. These numbers are approximate because of the way most internet fax providers assume that one page takes a minute to send (it can actually take longer if a page has a lot of graphical content). Our review chart also contains the average times that individual services took to send and receive a one-page document. All times are in minutes and seconds. For more information on HIPAA, how fax providers calculate pages, or how we reviewed Internet fax services, please see our FAQ.
