I am using Bandwidth.com. I don't know if they support Asterisk but I am
using their hosted PBX solution which has worked very well for the past
couple of years.

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.
