We are also making significant new investments in Next Generation Voice Services that will be available to customers in early 2016."

The benefits of Allstream's SIP Trunking for mid-market and enterprise businesses include:

  • National Footprint – Access to major Canadian centres through a single SIP Trunk connection with unlimited local and long distance calling on the Allstream network in Canada
  • Trunk Pooling – A single large pool of  trunks to serve all Allstream exchanges, optimizing efficiency while simplifying network design and management
