In setting up Asterisk, I'm looking to dump my current phone system (Nortel 
Venture). I presently have three POTS lines.

I would use a VOIP provider, but now are presently available in the Toronto, ON, 
CANADA area that support user owned hardware/software. I need a 416/647 area 
code number.

In looking at FXO cards to atteach to the lines, I've seen the Digum single port 
FXO card and their multipoort FXS cards. So far, the cheapest route seems to be 
to buy three Digum FXO cards; however, the system I want to use them it only has 
some three/four PCI slots. Having one card with three FXO ports would be useful. 
I'm also open to using an external device. I bought a DLink dual port MCGP FXS 
device and that works well. The name of the game is CHEAP though...and Ebay has 
not been very useful.

Any recommendations? Experiences?
