Just been looking over a few other providers..

VoxBeam look really good, but sadly they do not offer an automation API yet
- which is a real kicker for us :(

Conexiant also seem good, but they charge per minute and don't list their
concurrent channel limits.. is this a common thing among US DID providers??

DIDnumbers seems to have a great range of numbers, good prices, but doesn't
seem to have any notable reputation.

Out of all of them, Conexiant appear to be the most reputable for US DIDs..
any thoughts???
