Few years ago, I was trying to find a cheap way to keep my home phone number. I decided to use freephoneline(FPL). I spent $25 for an used ATA box, $50 for FPL file(costs more now) and $25 to port my home number to FPL. After the initial $100 spending, I don't have monthly charge. Free unlimited calling to most Canadian cities.
