Options for physical phone connections

We’re looking to replace our PBX provider with our own PBX.

Currently I’m testing Trixbox, and I’m loving it, our current provider has lots of issues.

However while internal calls work, obviously I need a connection to the PSTN to call physical phone numbers.

Telepacific wants to have us to a PRI, it’s going to be a few hundred dollars and apparently we need a card in our server which can be kind of expensive. Not sure how I feel about that, we’re trying to save money not spend more.

We can do SIP trunking, but lots of services I’ve seen want $20-25/month, but that is how much we’re paying for a managed PBX system right now! Ugh.

Any ideas guys? :slight_smile:
