Hi,

if I have a broadband DSL I can use the voip OK.

But, if in the house I have an IP phone that is setted
for ring with the number 312 555 5555 for example
can I have another IP phone where ring the number
212 444 4444 for example?

I mean can I use more providers only for call or
for receive too?

If is possible which are the restrictions?

thank you friends! there are a lot of friendly persone
here, thank you again

Johnny

You don't really have to have two separate service providers for that. You
can use 2-port VoIP gateway (like those InnoMedia 3328-2 telephone
adapters Net2phone sells with their service), and establish two calling
plans under the same account, one with 212 area code, and one with 312
(going by examples you posted here). That would greatly simplify your
billing, BTW.

But to directly answer your question, yes you can have multiple VoIP
services on the same broadband connection.

There are certainly ways to do this.

I've noticed that some of the closed systems provide
devices which must be first on the line. I'd expect
to run into problems trying to use two of those.

Stay away from the closed systems and it shouldn't
be a big problem. An SPA-2000 and a VoicePulse
Connect! account would be a simple solution.

(I have multiple incoming lines routed to multiple
phones in my house.)

> Hi,


thank you for the answers to Dimitri and Kyler,

I make a better example:

I buy a router NetGear DG834G
http://www.netgear.com/products/details/DG834G.php

I would connect to the router 2 wireless phones.

In the first phone I put a number of London +44
In the second a number of New York +212

Now for each of them I set the Voip provider and
so the number will be recognized in the phone.

For you how many phones can I connect to the same
router? I suppose about 3 or 4 with that model.

And I think this is clear.

Now, per each phone, can I set more numbers right?
So I can have 2 phones with 2 numbers in each so
4 lines with 2 phones,

is it correct?

thank you very much friends!!

This is still unknown. It depends on the provider. You
definitely can do it with some combinations of providers
and hardware.

That doesn't mean much to me. You'll register each
device (or each line of each device) to an account with
some provider. How they route calls to you is up to
them.

Well...close enough.

Bandwidth (upstream, probably) is the only technical
limitation. I have 384Kbps uploads at my house. Using
a medium-speed codec, let's estimate 40Kbps (with IP
overhead), I *could* support 9 simultaneous calls.

>Now, per each phone, can I set more numbers right?


It's up to your provider.
http://broadvoice.com/features_premium.html#alt_numbers

Pick up to two additional phone numbers, with
each number having a distinctive ringing pattern.


http://www.voicepulse.com/features/s...alNumbers.aspx

You can have as many Virtual Numbers as you
want on a line or account!

Instead of just reading more about this, I recommend
getting an SPA-2000
http://store.voxilla.com/customer/pr...roductid=16134
and a VoicePulse Connect! account.
http://connect.voicepulse.com/
That's what I finally did. It made the situation much
clearer to me. Absolute worst case, you will have spent
~$100 on a great education.

(I don't think VoicePulse is the best provider for long-
term use but their Connect! service is a good cheap way to
get started.)

I think that the issue is, that depending on the cities involved, he may
have to deal with two or more seperate VOIP providers to get service. If he
is running multiple SPA-2000s (or other VOIP adapters) behind a NAT router,
does he run into problems forwarding the necessary SIP ports in the router
to more than one device?

Why is the router an issue? I didn't do anything special with my
router (and neither have the other people who are using my SPA-2000s).
