Canada VoIP Providers for Home and Business

If you have spent some time searching for Canada VoIP Providers for your home or business phone service needs, then you have probably realized that many service providers have pretty vague information on their service availability in Canada.

There are a lot of options out there at different price points. To help, WhichVoIP has performed the research for you and created comparison tables below of who we consider to be solid service providers offering low cost and quality service in the Canadian VoIP market.

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.

I do not have a home phone. Will the phone number that I get be long distance for my local callers?

-> Response: With VoIP you get to pick your area code so unless there are inventory issues with phone numbers for your area code you should be able to choose a local number (thus local calls for your callers).

I frequent Costa Rica in the winter and would like to know if I go with voip can I use a cell phone with a wifi address in costa rica and make and receive calls.

-> Response: Yes you can do this with most VoIP providers. All you need is a VoIP app for your phone that connects to your chosen provider. If the provider doesn't have their own apps they often partner with a third party (e.g. Bria app from Counterpath) for the iphone (also Android). You just need to check with your provider that you can take their settings and plug it into the app.

Is it possible from Canada to Panama, Central America?

-> Response: It is indeed possible. How many minutes do you think you will be calling to Panama each month?
I am asking this because if not too many minutes you may be better with a pay as you go type plan rather than an International plan with unlimited minutes.
By the way the rate is typically around 3.8c/min for calling Panama. An international plan with unlimited minutes to Panama is around $25 + taxes. So you can see why the number of minutes you use each month is a determining factor in deciding which plan to go with.

 

#59 : Posted by Matt Seburn on October 16th, 2015:

How do you use the block call feature on my phone?

-> Response: For VoIP, if the provider supports call blocking, you normally do this in their secure portal. Log in via a browser and add the numbers you need to block and then it will be handled at the server level rather than the phone.

 

#58 : Posted by Iain Henderson on October 5th, 2015:

Does anyone provide a VOIP phone that can be used with US/Canada and UK voltages, thereby providing worldwide flexibility?

-> Response: You should be able to use most IP phones in the UK and US/Canada because the wall adapter typically handles the voltage and frequency range for these countries so all you need is a mechanical adapter between the different plug types, which are readily available.
Another option is use Power over Ethernet (PoE).

 

#57 : Posted by Doug Hiley on September 13th, 2015:

Can I migrate my bell telephone number to a voip service?

-> Response: Most numbers can be "ported" to a VoIP service provider. You can read more about the porting process here.

 

#56 : Posted by Norm Matte on August 26th, 2015:

I currently have VOIP with TekSavvy. My phone continously keeps cutting out when we are on calls. They cannot seem able to find the problem. Will this happen if I change over to another provider using the same internet system. I also have my internet with TekSavvy using the Rodgers cable system

-> Response: It is possible that this is an Internet related issue, in which case the problem will always be there regardless of your VoIP provider. My recommendation is to run our VoIP and Speed test tool. You can find this tool from our residential tab on our site.

 

#55 : Posted by Merle on May 27th, 2015:

I spend 5 months in the U.S. every year. Can I take my phone with me, hook up to the internet down there and use the same phone number I have in Canada?

-> Response: Sure, you can do that. As long as you have a decent Internet connection in the U.S you're good to go. That's the beauty of VoIP :)

 

#54 : Posted by Gail Doucette on March 10th, 2015:

How do I find out if my number is portable. I have checked with a few Canadian Providers and the area I am in was not for them. Is there a site that I can check for my locations.

-> Response: Sometimes this happens, especially in Canada and old rate centers.
Take a look at our article on number portability which also includes a couple of tools to check out in the resource section at the end.

 

#53 : Posted by Professor Frink on March 4th, 2015:

I really like voip.ms as they do IAX so I can select my own numbers, they have multiple servers, and I never have to talk to humans. UNFORTUNATELY they don't have a Point of Presence (POP) in Halifax. Anyone know a good provider in Halifax that can do the same thing?
