    For many years, we’ve offered Vitelity’s $3.99 Unlimited DID special with a DID, 4 channels, unlimited inbound calling, and free text messaging. It’s a deal no VoIP user should pass up. And today we have another revolutionary development for Asterisk® deployments. Once in a while we feature a carrier with great calling rates. Today we’re introducing a service providing access to 300+ wholesale carriers, all under one roof. Almost 30 BILLION billed minutes already have been logged through TCXC so you’re in good hands! You can choose from any or all of their 300 wholesale VoIP carriers worldwide to make outbound calls at the same wholesale rates offered to the very largest resellers. Simply pay a 13% surcharge in lieu of the $650 annual fee, and TelecomsXchange (TCXC) will provide you access to their entire suite of wholesale carriers together with state-of-the-art tools to manage all of the services...

    Hey Ward,

    What about Outbound CID? Do they pass this everywhere?
    So they sell DIDs?

    I presume there is support for Nerd Vittles in the 13%?

    Do we see our prices in the web or do we have to do the math?

    @w1ve: Outbound CID is passed if you choose the CID carriers. It's one of the Search boxes.

    They don't sell DIDs directly, but one of their carriers is giving a bunch away. See the NV article.

    Yes, they are supporting our open source projects. It's noted in the signup form.

    The pricing is in their web portal. See the NV article.

    The Market View is VERY, VERY slow... Now, I know VOXBEAM serves 1603... Look at the spinner under seller... Dead Slow! Tried from my office (250/10) and from a VPS
    with (1GB/1GB)... still dead slow. Any hints on making it faster?

    @w1ve: See the updated Nerd Vittles article to download the API rate script for local use. It's much faster. It returned 1603 results in under 3 seconds for me. The TCXC site gets swamped at certain times of the day.

    Except you can't order it:

    upload_2018-2-13_15-4-2.png

    Like the idea of the service -- but,

    Only 1/1 routes I found for USA 48 were from Asian carriers; tried two... one did not work, the other, even though I had correctly configured dial string for my country
    and area code (1603), kept ringing a Malaysian number (country code 60) The CDR says it was USA (Calling from one phone to another in ,my office.)

    So far, Voxbeam Premium (CLI) better direct from them at $0.0089. (6/6)
    Also Anveo Direct is $0.004/min to most of USA48. (6/6 and some weird rules, tho)

    Note on the config for the trunk: you have qualify=yes, which is sending SIP OPTIONS message; they are returning NOT Implemented.

    I could not find USA48 1/1 with CLI at great rates, but if you can find one, let me know. The jury is out for me.

    @w1ve: Try searching for Prefix 1800 which will bring up tollfreedollars. Then you should be able to add it to your account.

    And, yes, Market View takes some getting used to in order to get the most out of it.

    What they're missing is a simple way to directly sign up with a carrier without having to initiate a search that includes the carrier. I agree and will pass it along. I was just showing you a way to get tollfreedollars to pop up.

    TollFreeDollars is indeed $0.004 and works... do you know if it is 1/1 or 6/6 billing?

    Spreadsheet will tell you for sure. May be different in different areas.

    If would be great if you could search the Marketplace with billing increments as well.

    Hi guys just to informe that TollFreeDollars isn't working since they are now using Zero-Nine, also I did not see how we can have information in ToolFreeDollars only what has in theyer first page a few phrases only. I had a conversation with people from Zero Nine has a year I think, they have a lot of problems in theyer website, I do not know if they fix. the problems, ayway seams that they change things there since my last visit.
    About call 0800 USA numbers I just use my Ekiga to call because is free, remember all that I'm in Brazil theses days (I already lived in USA and also in Mexico City)

    @wardmundy - just to say thank you very much for more this usefull post, I already talk to people of TCXC about price of minuts to Brazil and they have a very cheap price and more most of the companies has 1/1 Billing and this make a great difference.

    TollFreeDollars worked fine for me just now:

    Code:
    INCREDIBLEPBX_CHS 18435...... 843XXXXXXX UNITED STATES OF AMERICA [Other] 6 s 2018-02-15 15:18:43 $ 0.0004 $ 0.004 tollfreedollars.com USA Normal call clearing
    Just to repeat... Carriers go up and down from time to time. That's why it's important to specify multiple Trunks (carriers) in all of your Outbound Routes. If you want TelecomsXchange to do the routing for you when carriers fail, just be sure to specify them as your last trunk in every Outbound Route trunk sequence.
