Don't Blindly Buy SIP Trunking From Your Incumbent Telco

It wasn't so long ago that AT&T and Verizon would stall on selling you SIP Trunking until they finally realized you weren't kidding and they had to hustle to make sure you actually bought their SIP Trunking service, not somebody else's.

Now it's a different world. AT&T and Verizon are fully on board the SIP Trunking bandwagon, and they sometimes give the impression that they'd rather clear everybody off the PSTN anyway and are happy to push you into convergence.

Funny, though - either way the big guys still erect barriers to anything other than a glide path from their old services to their new ones. Whether it's you pushing them or them pushing you, don't forget that there's a third interested party: all the other carriers who would love to help you out!
