Primus was established in 1997, is HQ in Toronto, ON. Primus provides long distance, Home Phone VoIP, business VoIP, high-speed Internet service and POTS for residential and business use.

Primus was bought by York Capital Management in July of 2013. In the United States Primus operates under the name Lingo.  Primus has been undergoing a business transformation, named a new CEO in January of 2014.

While Primus has a very good Canadian track record; their Digital (VoIP) Unlimited Home Phone Plus plan used to be one of the most expensive in the Canadian market. Recently updated pricing for their 2-year plan contract to be $15.95 a month. The offer also has the first 3-months for free. This plan is called Digital Home Phone Plus does have some of the most traditional features, 18 features included, such as Voicemail, Telemarketing guard, and Caller ID.

The other plan available is the Digital Home Phone, which has no advanced features, such as voicemail to email, only local calling and it comes to be $9.95 per month.  

But at this time is lacking a softphone and a smartphone app; something many providers these days do decide to include. As usual, you can get a new telephone number or port your existing number. For some reason Primus as decided to not support BYOD, effectively closing the door to potential customers.

Shall be noted Primus Home Phone service implies a two-year contract, the month to month cost is not so much more expensive than other providers. Though you have to weight in what features are important to you; as it could be missing from Primus Home Phone.
