You need a T.38 capable ATA. There are a few but not too many. I
believe the Grandstream ATAs have T.38 support or will have it
("Support transparent Fax pass-through and in the future T.38
(pending)"). The Linksys/Sipura 2100 can definitely do it -- it works
well for me :).

Then you need a T.38 capable ITSP. Some are listed on
http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/VOIP+Service+Providers+T.38 but I
don't have experience with any other them.

T.38 pass-through support in Asterisk is available as a patch on the
bug tracker for 1.2. Not sure if it made it into the 1.4 beta version
or not, but on 1.2 it works OK for me.
