I could cut that cost in half if you are interested. When you say very little traffic, how much as you estimating as I would quote you a price per DID and would include the port cost in that number.

I should probably ad, that the actual call volume on those DIDs is very low.

Reducing cost per DID a month

Posted:Sat 20 of Dec, 2014 (09:45 UTC)
Hi I'm an IT guy and know a thing or two about asterisk, but I know very little about the greater scheme of things, like: carriers and regulations.

Our company has several thousands DIDs (used as tracking numbers for marketing purposes)
For now, we are buying our DIDs from voip-innovation and voip.ms, and paying about $1.00 / Month for each DID (usa local).

I would like to understand if we can save few thousands dollars a month in any way.
Both voip-innovation and voip.ms allow to "port out"

So the main question is:
How can we reduce those monthly fees?


Sub questions:
- Do voip-innovation have a middle-man charge between me and the local provider? (if local provider is even the right term)
- What do I need to set up - in order to port DID out to our self? (is that the way to go?)
