I'm using 2 VoIP providers - Unlimitel and vBuzzer.
90% of time I'm using vBuzzer which is a flat fee service ($15/month +
$25/year for number)
Sometimes vBuzzer is down and then asterisk automatically uses Unlimitel
trunk which is a $90/10,000min service. The unlimitel trunk I use for
business and we put through around 12,000min per month on it - I highly
recommend it for business.
In terms of cellphone bill, I have 150min a month outbound + Unlimited
evenings and weekends + Unlimited incoming + CanadaWide My5. For this
portion of the service I pay $50. I have never exceeded the 150min monthly
limit, yet my last bill had a total of 2417 minutes.
