Setting up my own VoIP server

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was wondering if there is an easy way to create my own VoIP service using my landline number. It can sound a bit outdated but if I use or not I will pay the same to my ISP and Cable TV provider.

Yup you can.  You need ~$300 in DAC/ADC hardware and a server to run it.

Asterisk is a FOSS VoIP server OS that can do all of what you want.

What hardware to be more specific?

You could use an Obihai and port your number over to that

3CX maybe? haven't tried but i remember coming across it when looking for IP phone systems.

Its software based.

I heard of people using this: https://www.asterisk.org/ with Google Voice. Ive personally never tried it, as my ISP has a cap and I dont need to waste bandwidth on VoIP. But it sounds like it works for the most part. 


You ever notice that many establishments have a sign that as "No Shirt, No Shoes, No service"? They never say anything about pants............ You know what that implies. You dont have to wear pants.

For the server setup I recomend FreePBX. Chris from crosstalk solutions has a youtube series on setting up FreePBX. And for your number I recomend that you ask your cable provider if they support acces to the number via a sip trunk (probably don’t) or you could transfer it to a sip trunk provider.
