Considering my options changing to Bigpipe.
The wife and kids will still want a local number so can't drop that.

Who would people recommend? 
Mostly be local calling and NZ mobiles

Thanks

I've been using 2Talk for a number of years without too many issues. Pricing for calls seems to be better than ISP pricing for bundled services.

2talk works for me. I only register the phone when I need to call so no idea on reliability on incoming calls thru the carrier grade Nat.

I've found it works no problems. Would recommend 2talk or VFX personally.

2Talk. Their PBX options online are amazing, super simple to use. Quite cheap as well for their lowest plan ($10/mo i think + GST (local landline number inc.))

You will obviously have to request a non CG-NAT connection as VoIP won't work otherwise.

I've been happy with 2Talk for a couple of years.

I haven't had to request anything special (such as non CG-NAT) from BigPipe.  I just set up my SPA122 and off it went.  I've since asked for a "sticky" IP due to other things I'm doing, but didn't need that for 2Talk to work.
