ATA: 2 exts with one PSTN and several SIP

    I'm interested in an ATA with two internal extension ports and one
    (analogue) PSTN connection. I'd like one of the internal ports always to
    default to the PSTN line, but allow routing via at least one SIP provider
    given some particular key sequence prefix (e.g. #001*, or whatever). The
    other should default to one of the SIP providers, but allow routing via
    either PSTN or any of the other SIP provders given some particular key
    sequence prefix.

    Pricing would ideally be towards the lower end of the market but
    definitely sub-£100.

    Any suggestions, please?

    Many thanks,

    You get what you pay for (more or less).

    Around the 100 squid mark is the Fritz!box (with vat and delivery)
    which, configured correctly, will do all you want.

    At about half that price, with some limitations, the grandstream 386
    ATA doesn't do exactly what you want, but can work around it-ish. It
    doesn't default to PSTN on either port, though, with a dialled prefix,
    your PSTN can be used. Each port would need its own SIP
    provider/account as there is no dial plan to choose SIP provider when
    dialling - whereas on the fritzbox, I believe, you can dial out from
    port 1 using account 1 or 2 etc.

    That will certainly do it, but not sure of the price, is it under £100..?
    I personally prefer the version with the built in ADSL modem and router,
    that way you get QoS and it's one less power supply plug..!

    You can dial out on any of the 10 available accounts from either phone
    port. It's a bit fiddly though as the prefix codes required are rather
    long, but it's certainly usable.
