SIP Service Providers - BroadVoice

A popular USA gateway VoIP provider with gateways in over 80 countries in total.

Notes:

  1. Due to technical issues Broadvoice can only be used with Axon!
  2. You need to select a BYOD plan (always the cheapest).
  3. If you restart our software too often and too quickly, you will be temporarily ignored by the BroadVoice servers. This is a mechanism they use to stop multiple devices registering with one account, but it sometimes works a bit too well. The best solution is to close the software and leave it for about a minute before starting it up again.
  4. Transfers don't currently work with Broadvoice, but if you only want to make basic calls with on-hold features, they will be sufficient.
