Last week I got an email from Link2VoIP saying that they are shutting it
down in a few months. Sighting competition and the unethical changes being
made to the Internet by special interest groups.

I use Link2VoIP for termination, connecting my Asterisk servers to the
regular old telephone company.
I like Link2VoIP, I have a few numbers with them and many of my clients do
to. Anyone else being affected by this? What are you doing for VoIP
termination?

I am in Canada, many popular VoIP providers do not work here. And soon that
number will be one less.

  • I would suggest VoicePulse. They seem to have a wide presense.

  • One of the VoIP providers I use is voip.ms which is in Canada. They can
    port your and your client’s numbers. Afaik they have a good reputation.
    Why don’t you give them a call. http://voip.ms/contactus.php

  • Sounds a little whiney. No, a lot whiney.

    Never heard of them, but we’re a VoIP company ourselves. We treat
    Canada the same as the US as far as rates and connectivity, and many
    other companies do too. It does cost more to work with Canada numbers
    and termination, but it’s within a reasonable margin. Just do a
    little searching and you’ll find many companies who don’t see Canada
    any differently.
