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.

This is changing rapidly however as more and more Canadians are now enjoying the amazing cost savings and the vast features available with this modern technology. This is fuelling the growth of the Canadian VoIP market as more providers start to offer their services to consumers and businesses.

I have a landline phone paying around $35.00 a month for that. I have internet. Could I get a VoIP system and still use my regular phones and number. How much would that cost approximately? Can I set it up myself?

-> Response: Yes you should be able to save a lot going to VoIP, maybe as much as $25/month saving.
On our Canada page above look at the residential providers. They can ship you an ATA that enables you to connect your current phone to the Internet. Porting your number should not be an issue either. Connecting it up is as simple as plugging the phone into the ATA and the Ethernet cable supplied from the ATA to your Internet modem and powering up the ATA device so no issues doing it yourself.

I need some help. My current cell phone is 14 years old and costs about $11 per month. Can you tell me a couple of things. How much does the phone cost to purchase for this set up on VoIP. Being from northern Ontario, Elliot Lake, what is the service when we are out of the town or does it only work in town? Does it work anywhere I go? What type of phone would be recommended for this? Could I use it on my motorcycle rides?

-> Response: You can get a plan for under $10/month, often less for the initial year or 2 year plans.
For your home, the provider will usually send you an ATA adapter that your analog phone plugs into - sometimes this costs $10 or so plus shipping.
For the motor bike, use your cell and get the provider's app or a third party app such as Bria (Canadian company) and use that for making and receiving calls - it works pretty well.

Can you have more than one phone ( extension) on the one voip line?

-> Response: Yes you can. For home service your best bet is to use cordless phones and connect the base into the ATA box the voip provider gives you. Typically you will be limited to one call at any given time for home service.
For businesses, usually you have multiple phones/extensions throughout the office, each with their own unique extension number for making and receiving calls simultaneously.
The limitation on the number of calls tends to be your Internet bandwidth.

I spend winter time at Haiti. Can my incoming calls by redirected to my call phone over there?

-> Response: Do you have Internet in Haiti? If so you should be able to bring the adapter with you and connect to the Internet in Haiti and receive incoming calls just like you would at home (also make calls).

Can I get free calling to phone numbers in England and France on an unlimited basis? Is north America and mexico included with the above on any of the plans. Do I keep my own home number and also my cell number?

-> Response: Most providers have the ability to make International calls but are usually either extra in terms of per minute pricing or some offer International plans that cover a certain number of minutes for International calls.
Typically the standard plans cover US and Canada only.
Yes you can keep your own number in 99% of cases. Some rural areas can be problematic for number porting but it is rare.
Your cell number is not affected.

Is VOIP OK on FIBE? What about TV that we have tied to our business? Thank you.

-> Response: I have not tried it but it should be fine and fiber tends to be a dedicated connection direct to the central office so in many ways fiber is optimal for VoIP.

 

#63 : Posted by Rick

I get internet through my phone line. If I get VoIP what happens to my internet, does it still come through the phone line?

-> Response: Yes that will not change at all, your Internet will still come through your phone lines. Your phone service will connect to the Internet (DSL) modem though rather than the phone lines.

 

#62 : Posted by Paul

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.
