what are you trying to do with asterisk..   what's the scope of the
project. ?? 

As far as providers..  I have a bunch of viatalk trunks.   I've had no
problems with them in 6 months.  Great quality. ====== www.viatalk.com

We're on the Bring Your Own Device Business plan.   It gives you 2
trunks with 2 different numbers.  Each trunk is good for 2 concurrent
calls.     One of the lines is supposed to be a fax line but we use it
as a second line.    Faxing over viatalk sip => Asterisk is flawless.  
Another nice thing about viatalk is that they don't put a "softcap" on
your usage.  Most VOIP providers limit you to about 2500 minutes per
month.   Viatalk doesn't.   They're absolutely wide open.    

I installed viatalk trunks and asterisk servers in 4 small businesses I
consult here in Lincoln.

I have 2 hangups with viatalk.   1.  They don't allow you to change your
outbound cid.   and 2. they don't have local numbers in Lincoln.   (the
Omaha numbers are 402-216-XXXX <http://www.snapanumber.com/> and
402-403-XXXX <http://www.snapanumber.com/>)

Hope that helped.
