[Home Phone] Long distance rate for iNum calls made over POTS ?

I tried finding the long distance rates for calling iNum numbers over POTS (regular analog phone service) using TSI long distance.

The rate tool on the website returns nothing for the iNum area code 883...

Anyone knows what could be the rates if any ?

Thanks.

Re: [Home Phone] Long distance rate for iNum calls made over POT

Hi there,

To be honest, I had to Google what that means and now that I know, I have no clue if we have rates for that or not.

I will share this thread internally to find out.

I may not get an update until tomorrow.

Cheers,

Andre

INUM 883 is a country code, not an area code.

To call 883 INUM numbers you need to dial 011 883 xxxxx

From what I read of Voxbone's propaganda ... it's for the cost of a local phone call so in Canada that strictly means "free" like any other local call. In other countries local calls are not free, so the cost would be local fee.

Hi there,

I had suspicion that what sbrook told you yesterday was right but I wanted to find out for myself as this was new to me.

We were able to confirm what sbrook said which is in fact it still terminates at the country so finding that country would be the rates your are looking for.

I am not sure if it makes sense, as +883 can be terminated on a voip account that has no other DID. How can Bell (as Teksavvy's POTS provider) determine which country it terminates in. Actually I am surprised that Bell even routes that number.

OK, here we go ...

For a list of telephone operators that route telephony to iNum see

»www.inum.net/?page_id=22

These are wireline, mobile and VoIP

No Canadian wireline operators like Bell appear to route to iNum

Bell Mobility will route to iNum

There's an extensive list of VoIP operators that route to iNum ... but not TekTalk

For a list of wireless operators that route SMS to iNum see

»www.inum.net/?page_id=24

---

For a list of Dial-in (relay) numbers to iNum see

»www.inum.net/?page_id=42

To use a dial-in number ... call the dial in number, then call the iNum number (presumably without the +883) The cost of the iNum call is just the cost to you of calling the dial in number. If it's a local number, then it's free.

When I enter my iNum in TekSavvy's long distance rate lookup tool, I get the following:

Region Code    Region Name                   Price
0 Canada & USA (North America) $0.03/minute


I get the same result for my +882 numbers (e164.org). So since I have TekTalk unlimited, I would assume those calls to be free.

Note that only +883-5100 numbers are considered iNum. Other +883 numbers are quite a bit more expensive.
