Im definately keen for a Wangaratta DID number. I have had to sign up to My Net Fone to get a Wang DID. I also know another 3-4 people who would be interested as they are looking at exetel naked with voip.

So that could bring the numbers up to 7 people. Im assuming a lot more would be interested as they wouldn't all read these forums.

Just checked the DIDs available, and currently the Newcastle and Wollongong numbers are mixed up - ie. the Wollongong DIDs are listed under the Newcastle title and the Newcastle DIDs are under the Wollongong title.

Bummer :(

No Benalla VoIP numbers, let me guess all because of Telstra lock down of our exchange?

Can you provide some info why we cant have them, it woudl make it a lot easier if i have a reason to tell people why they cant have a local voip number.

Telstra doesn't have controls on numbering, ACMA manage numbering.
If it's not available, it's possible our supplier doesn't have any numbers there.

Cool, well that's something I didn't know.

Thankyou for the info, does anyone know how we woudl go about getting numbers for Benalla from the ACMA through exetel then?

Or should I just give up and simply accept the fact that there will never be Benalla VoIP numbers.

Hmm. I'll ask our Voice manager for more details, I've checked ACMA's allocations list, and GoTalk, Soul, AAPT all seem to have numbers there..

Update: We can't get them from our suppliers at all.

I understand that we cant get them from our suppliers but why?

Whats stopping them from selling them to eXeTel? if other telcos have them why cant eXeTel?

Its rather confusing

Exetel doesn't take on numbers directly from ACMA (mainly because we don't have equipment to terminate those number ranges).
So, we are left with whatever our upstream suppliers are 'offering'.

Awesome, thank you.

A nice technical answer that gives a clear definitive reason why benalla cant have local VoIP numbers.

Its exactly what i wanted/need, thank you for your time and concise info.
