Allstream today launched its Voice Over Internet Protocol Access service, which it says allows service providers to connect their self-managed VoIP offerings to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN).

According to the company, it is the first service in Canada to offer full ancillary services including 911(1), 711, 411, Local Number Portability (LNP) and Operator services to VoIP service providers.

Other features include connectivity to the PSTN and to the LD and Internet networks.

The company also announced that Primus Canada will use VoIP Access as part of its TalkBroadband service.

Starting at $27.95 a month per line, it can support multi-line businesses with multiple or single location offices, or SOHO businesses with just one or two lines.

Primus says no up-front investment in equipment is required since the service is compatible with a customer’s existing telephones and telephone equipment.
