I didn't want to put these providers all in one thread so I'm asking separately (for future users wanting to search).

Has anyone tried bandwidth.com? Are they good? Bad?

Do you find their rates competitive?

Any insight appreciated.

You'll find the rate question to be the most difficult to answer. Some providers are fantastic on termination but expensive on origination... and vice versa. Others have inexpensive origination but high monthly DID fees. Still others have monthly minimums. Good luck!

I use Bandwidth.com and pay about .002 with a $500/mo. minimum 2 year contract. I moved to them from Voip Innovations... Rates are great, lack of features compared to VI sucks.

I've been dabbling with Telnyx and really like their features and back end portal.. Pricing isn't wholesale though.

V1VoIP has a really nice portal and you can search for DIDs and provision them within minutes. Pricing is pretty good. I just looked at my latest invoice and the average was .002112 for termination.

Does V1Voip have good coverage? I'm looking for good Canada/US colid coverage, quality, realiability.

I actually tried looking up v1voip, signed up and just tried calling them.

It may be me but they seem mickey mouse? Not very responsive and they look to have a small industrial unit out of Boca?

Rates are really good though.

They are a little light on support, but the service is very reliable and they have multiple datacenters with automatic failover

Telynx uses bandwidth.com among others. I like Telynx rates and no minimums.

Only thing is you can't choose your carriers like you can with VoIP Innovations.

We have been in trials with several carriers after deciding to leave Broadsoft. We selected Bandwidth because Broadsoft did - good endorsement. We had a great trial with V1VoIP and Flowroute. Bandwidth tried to do some weird big boy power play and their rate contract is indecipherable. They basically said unless you will sign a contract for $5K in monthly revenue we wont be bothered to set up a SIP trunk for you to test. Really? Bye.

The sales guy I was working with said he gets a lot of negative feedback about their "We are Bandwidth.com, you know who we are and we don't need to prove our service with trials" attitude. I don't need a partner like that. Lots of options out there.

I stopped using V1VoIP about a month ago, but their termination is pretty straight forward. What are you having difficulty with?

That's so odd.. I thought it was 10 times harder to get Inbound set up than outbound with V1VoIP. We were able to get everything working, but there were only 2 issues we had with V1Voip on initial setup:

In our switch that's using V1Voip, I have 3 SIP servers allowed in the Access Control list. This server is working fine, but per the documentation at the time we set it up, those SIP servers you need to add to ACCESS CONTROLS > DOMAINS > ALLOW were:

allow 207.239.159.171/32 sip1.v1viop.com
allow 173.246.36.196/32 sip2.v1voip.com
allow 207.239.151.40/32 sip3.v1voip.com

The other issue was that by default, V1VoIP was set up for a 10 digit vs. 11 digit dial plan. V1Voip's portal has changed recently, but you can still find their 10 digit or 11 digit SIP Type field under DIDS > Forwarding.
