How-To: Using Voxbone To Get Local Numbers In 40+ Countries

by Brian McConnell

I split my time between the Bay Area and Argentina, and so to cut down on my telecom costs, I use VoIP (Gizmo in particular) quite heavily. In this short how-to, I share a trick you can use to get local DIDs (direct dial numbers) in some 50 countries worldwide.

Thanks for this quick and useful article. A company I work for recently need some international numbers. The ILEC wanted some outrageous rates to get us the numbers through TDM. Instead I set up an Asterisk box and got the numbers through Voxbone. It was fast and painless. Not to mention very low priced. Finally, I'd like to mention that their support was always fast and the audio quality is the some of the best I've heard.

In the Voxbone webpage they say that they only provide the service to resellers, in your manual do you refer to a reseller page or has the situation changed since you wrote it?

Hi,


A warning!. The information provided for VOXBONE is *not* correct.


VOXBONE provides services to big companies and telcos only. On their website you'll find (after quite a bit of surfing) that


" ...A minimum spending of $500 / €500 per month, otherwise it will be enforced." !!


Good luck,


P.R.

Just relaying my negative experience with voxbone:


I ordered a local and toll free DID from them. Some people couldn't dial the number, but others could. Voxbone support wasn't able to resolve the problem, so they said the people who couldn't dial the number should call their phone providers. Yeah right.


Also, the 800 DIDs require a $100 toll free credit purchase, which they wouldn't refund after I was unsatisfied with the service. I would suggest looking elsewhere for inboud voip service.
