Hi,

I need a Sydney based phone number, primarily for inbound calls. I currently have an Xtra ADSL connection (approx 20 mbit down, 1 mbit up (100 meters from the Cabinet)) terminated in Hamilton. I have a Trixbox (Asterisk based) VOIP server here.

Can some one please recommend a provider.  Price is not the primary motivation.. We need our number to be stable, as it will be used as a contact point for our business. 

Suggestions please.

Regards
Daniel Parker

I've used Faktortel for a number of years and never had an issue.

Just be aware there are different numbers types in Aussie, and while you can get a DID number, an ACMA number can only be allocated if you have a valid address within the region you want the number in.

Hi,

What would make me want a ACMA number over a DID number?

I think you can get Australian numbers from 2talk now, Sydney is one of the regions.




Now on 2talk Network and it's better.
