Who's the best provider across the ditch for SIP trunks? Have an asterisk PBX that it will be terminated on.

Just looking for a standard number for business use.

Don't use it myself, but I've heard relatively good feedback about Pennytel.

I've used Faktortel for probably 6 or 7 years now and never had a single issue.

I've got an affiliate link which gives me something and I think gives you a discount as well if you want to sign up (been a long time since I looked so I'm not sure what that is now)

Also 2talk do Australia numbers.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

I also use Faktortel


When I signed up there was a geekzone (or whirlpool can't remember which) promo code which gives me a free Aussie land line number for local incoming calls. You got to pick your city.



So all my wife's family in Melbourne get untimed local calling to us direct into NZ. They get to call their own separate handset sitting on my fritzbox and love the idea that they have a hot line to NZ.



We also get 10c calls to aussie landlines with Faktortel. $20 lasted me about 2 years last time - and will be longer this time as my skinny phone has a huge number of free minutes.

I use this, never had a problem and it includes an inbound number in a city of your choice (even a few NZ locations).

Pennytel went 'bust' a year or two ago - MyNetfone took them over - probably better to go with MyNetfone - I use them at times and haven't had any problems.

Does MyNetFone have an NZ SIP server?
