Does anyone know how I can terminate VoIP calls to the PSTN withouth having to go through one of the major carriers like Verizon, AT&T or Qwest? I have a customer looking into providing VoIP Service to consumers in a similar format to Vonage (minus the lawsuits). I know I can terminate the calls using one of thh big players as a hand-off point. I am hoping there is a way t do it similar to a peering agreement for ISPs. Charges based on usage is fine. The major carriers want a per number/per month charge and that of course will bite into the profits.
