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.

Many of these providers say Canada long distance but in reality this does NOT include the Yukon 867 area code.

-> Response: Thank you for your comment, we have not come across this before. Always worth checking the terms and conditions before signing up for any service. Mind you, we cannot see any reference to this in some of the providers T&Cs.

Which VoIP providers in Canada provide their own modems that work over Rogers cable system, without the need for connection to an existing internet router? Example: Rogers VoIP modem has a cable connection and a telephone line connection, which allows the use of pre-installed wired phones through it, and is a stand-alone solution with battery backup. Who else?

-> Response: For third party VoIP providers in Canada they all tend to ship an ATA (adapter) to you. This plugs into your cable modem (or router etc). You then plug your regular telephone into the ATA (i.e. Ethernet from ATA to cable modem and regular telephone plugs into the ATA). This essentially turns your regular analog phone into an IP phone.
I am not aware of any VoIP providers that supply a modem such as the Rogers cable modem as the VoIP providers are trying to work with ALL Internet providers, whether DSL or Cable or Satellite etc. They do not want to provide the electronics to handle the actual Internet modem too.
For battery backup you can buy a UPS device to power the external components from places such as Amazon.
If you have many devices needing to access the Internet just use WiFi or buy a simple Ethernet switch that devices can all go through to connect to the Internet.

I'd like to know how the local number portability works, who decides which cities gets to keep their home phone number when transferring to VOIP and some others can't.

-> Response: Good question Andre and Canada has some gray areas when it comes to number portability. Hopefully this article on local number portability covers what you need along with useful resources for Canadians.
