Ditching the Dial Tone. VoIPing in Toronto.
For years I’ve paid the big telcos Bell, Rogers and Sprint far too much for my landline and long distance. Seeing as SkypeIn won’t be in Canada anytime soon, I decided to brave the VoIP landscape of Toronto. This is tricky because I don’t get my Internet from cable and many of the DSL providers are unable to provide dry loop DSL. My current home ISP is Magma with whom I am extremely happy. Very reliable, fast speeds, and responsive service. But they won’t let me ditch my dial tone, so I’m looking elsewhere.
The only option I have come across for far is Iristel. Their Ultimate Bundle promises very fast Internet speeds and a VoIP telephone line. It’s basically the VOiP equivalent of Primus’ phone and internet bundle.
Does anyone have any tips?
