Tamworth probably for me - more likely for the Armidale agents (Armidale Computers, Armidale Broadband) I don't know if there is a Tamworth agent.

If you get Armidale ones I'd have demand for sure.

We would switch from Engin to Exetel VOIP if they had a wangarratta number.

Unfortunately, Armidale is not possible.

Interesting Wangaratta is possible but only 26K population.
Any others for Wangaratta?

Tamworth number would be wonderful for me. :D

As far as I know there is an agent here in Tamworth. I think it is David Lane Computer services who I used to know reasonably well when he was working as a TV tech before he went out working for himself.
If not, I have also been thinking of approaching Exetel in order that I might be able to sell a few mainly HSDPA connections which I would be linking via router to drive remote access to CCTV systems which I install here & there. ( I am still thinking about this 1 though atm, but localised voip numbers also attached would certainly make for a good sales point. 8) )

With no Exetel ADSL2 in Armidale and some of the other places, what is the attraction of a local DID? Everyone has a PSTN number for locals to call. Is it just local suspicion of Sydney and Newcastle?

Here's some exmples:

1 - being able to drop the fax line
2 - not confusing customers when you magically ring them from Sydney :)
3 - HSPA VoIP (to get rid of the landline.)
4 - the ability to provision extra lines on demand for businesses and forward busy PSTN calls to a DID without paying STD diversion rates
5 - the ability to divert your local VoIP Landline number to a mobile - something I would readily do with VoIP but is not feasible with Telstra PSTN unless using a suitable forwarding ATA.
6 - In dual PSTN line households (ie partner has his/her own number) the ability to drop one line for VoIP
7 - Home businesses can have a 'business' number without adding a PSTN.

... stuff like that :)

Being in Launceston I'd prefer my DID was here, but it being a Melbourne number doesn't make any real difference, VOIP works just as well no matter where the DID is...

As long as I can have VoIP masked with my ADSL1, Exetel HSPA or Exetel mobile phone number, I don't really see a need to have regional DiDs!

Cr@p! Why didn't I ever think of that! Does that work? .. or was it killed by the reaction to ACA?

I currently have my HSPA number masking my VoIP on my mobile. It was available for a short time earlier in the year but was removed because of Verzion imposing US law on us.

I am hoping it will be allowed just for Exetel registered numbers, rather than open slather.
