....The issue with your TEKTALK service is your DID provider doesn't cover all areas, like some others.
That could be fixed by adding a 2nd DID provider for TEKTALK, [such as] Iristel....
Eastern Ontario is sadly neglected in coverage by TekTalk, for the precise reason which you stated above.
If I had waited for TSI to add another CLEC since the launch of TekTalk (1.5 years ago ?), I would still be waiting now.
In the meantime, I have set up accounts with 2 other VoIPPs who DO cover this area, one of whom uses Iristel as a CLEC near me, and the other one uses Fibernetics to service this area, and have ported my Bell landline number over to one of them.
TekTalk does need to catch up.
Their CLEC partner called 'ISP Telecom' (IIRC) simply is not enough, especially if TSI may be openly trying to steer folks to VoIP service rather than to POTS.
