Would Recommend? YES

You should start with start.ca

Best customer service, hands down. Reach a real person on the phone easily and they know what they're doing.

However, having to actually call them is not a frequent thing since service has been top notch.

The Start company has been around for a while now having been founded back in 2005. With more of a decade of experience, this telecommunications provider certainly knows its way around the business. Their headquarters can be found at 383 Richmond Street Suite 1200 London, ON N6A 3C4 Canada. An impressive thing to note about Start is that is BBB accredited with an A rating, and have received a meager 6 complaints in the past 3 years. Start has certainly built a large infrastructure in the past ten years that is now providing service globally. 

Start offers a Digital Voice US/Canada plan that costs $20.00 per month. If we were to compare this rate with PhonePower which can ultimately be gained for $5.99 per month using our pricing links, Start does seem to be much more expensive. The features and long distance rates are excluded from this plan which makes us wonder whether or not the price is worth the plan! 

Start also boasts some incredibly low international calling rates. For example, the international calling rate to cellular Pakistan phones is $0.04 per minute, which is a very competitive price. If we were to compare this with Yak, another prominent long distance provider which offers long distance rates to Pakistan cellular devices for $0.115 per minute! The difference of over six cents is greatly in favor of Start, and it certainly redeems itself for having a pricier plan. 

A few key aspects of residential home phone services were missing from Start’s plan. There was no mention of a smart app to offer better portability options to homeowners. There was also no indication of a proper fax system that could be integrated with this plan. However, there were the usual calling features that are provided by almost every provider, such as conference calling and voicemail.

Transferring your number to Start service is free of cost, however, these small features are not enough to justify the lack of a smart app or fax service.

All in all Start’s Digital Voice US/Canada plan does bring proper phone services to a household.

However, there are many other options that are just as, or even more viable then Start. Start needs to integrate more features into their plan to better accommodate the $20.00 price tag that comes along with this service. Due to BBB’s accreditation, we can assert that Start does provide quality customer satisfaction, but there are still ways that Start can go above and beyond to provide a better experience for its clients!

Is there any way I can stop someone from calling me, without changing my number?


Hi Jana, The usual first step is to register in the do not call list. Though that is for annoyance calls/telemarketers. Some advance providers do offer black-listing numbers you do not want to get calls from. and also have an extra feature that does not allow anonymous calls. The Gonevoip Team
