Jeremy from Nufone and Mark Spencer were both at this week's WISPCON in
Chicago. From the smell of it we won't have to wait very long before
there will be a number of choices wrt nationwide DID that then can
interconnect via a number of VoIP protocols, including IAX.
There were several CLEC types there who (at least from their telling)
have pretty big footprints, and it sure seems that asterisk is catching
It is unfortunate but understandable that as these ITSPs begin to roll
out their services, there are going to growing pains. There is really
IMO no existing business model into which they cleanly fit, and from the
perspective of customer service, most of them are growing too fast.
Lot of those WISPs have been playing with lots of ITSPs, and the sense
of the house was that it is a rare one that doesn't have
occasional-to-frequent termination problems.
Nufone and Vonage were basically the only ones there for which those
complaints weren't raised. And, FWIW, I have not had hugely good luck
with Voicepulse in terms of responsiveness of their customer service effort.
