Hi Nathan,

  Justin Newman proposed something along these lines about a month ago
on Voiceops. He wrote:


I'm currently building out daily testing of a large set of outbound
providers against a wide array of destinations. I'm looking for other
facilities-based LECs who would offer up a telephone number that
- answers the phone then plays a recording we provide (consisting of
test tones, etc.)
- forwards incoming calls to a toll free number (which will answer &
play a similar recording)

Estimated call volume is 100-200 calls per day, max. of 1 concurrent
call. ACD of 15-30s.

If you work for a company who would be willing, please drop me an
email off list and we can coordinate. The perks of participating
include knowing someone's doing a fairly substantial test of a wide
array of carriers a couple of times a day, and opening tickets with
the carriers when there are problems. We'll also try to provide some
visibility into problems, particularly if we see them from the big

Many thanks,


  There were no replies on list but he may have received some directly...
