Canada VoIP Providers for Home and Business

I Dont See Vonage Above, Are There More Providers to Choose From?

There are indeed a few more VoIP providers in the Canadian market place than we have listed in the table above. The providers in the comparison table above are some popular and low cost choices. Some of these providers also have a long service history in the United States and are considered well established. This is an important consideration with so many new providers entering the market each year. They also have a good selection of user submitted reviews with a good overall rating. Other well-known providers that service the Canadian home phone market include Vonage, MagicJack and Ooma.

Canadian VoIP Market Growth

The residential Canada VoIP market has been slower to take off when compared to the US market. This is changing rapidly however as more and more Canadians are now enjoying the amazing cost savings and the vast features available with VoIP phone service. This is fuelling the growth of the Canadian VoIP market as more providers start to offer their services to consumers and businesses. This in turn helps create healthy competition and maintains low pricing for the consumer. Although there are still not currently as many options available as there are in the United States, there are still some great choices and deals available today.

My main interest is in obtaining a 1-800 toll-free number for my business here in Canada. Can you give me some details? Costs? Exactly how do I set up this service? Will I need any special hardware to set up this service?

-> Response: The answer to this really depends if you are looking for a very basic 1-800 forwarding type service (e.g. just forward all calls to a cell phone) or something with additional features such as an auto attendant and multiple extensions. This article on turning any phone into a business phone should help highlight some options. Also our article on Toll Free numbers.

Hello, I am trying to figure out how to access my messages from outside the office but cant figure it out. We do not have an access code that we are aware of.

-> Response: It often depends on the provider you signed up with. Many providers let you do this by ringing your own telephone number and then press the star key when you hear your greeting. You normally need a pin code at this point though, as a password.

Phone numbers in Nova Scotia are restricted to Sydney and Halifax areas. The rest of the province is not covered. Is this because of the CRTC restrictions or do the main players have restrictions that cannot be overcome? Anyone know?

-> Response: We see this issue in rural Canada more than anywhere else. I believe it is due to restrictions with the local landline providers in some rate centers. They are not obligated to release or port numbers in those areas. It does tend to be rare though. Callcentric has a portability tool that may be worth trying.
