How does Global Call Forwarding work?
It's simple. When setting up your account, you select the city and area code of your local number, or virtual number, in Canada. Using the drop-down menu on the sign-up form (where it says "Select Your New Phone Number"), you select "Canada" and then "Ottawa (+1 613)" or "Ottawa-Hull (+1 343)." Once your account has been set up, your callers in Canada dial your assigned virtual number in Ottawa. When dialing the virtual number you have selected, the callers are automatically connected to your India mobile number or India landline number. You can divert your calls to any telephone number in the world when and as your circumstances require. You can customize your settings and route calls anywhere in the world – when, where, and how you want it.
Manage "ring to" number online
You have complete control via online account management as to "where" your virtual number will ring. You can easily change your "ring to" number via the web, 24/7. You simply login your account and change the destination number to any other landline or mobile phone number - in real time.
Not a VoIP service
It is critical to highlight that this service is not a VoIP service. Rather, it is an international call forwarding solution for those who demand reliability. The service is routed over the public switched telephone network (PSTN). The PSTN is the network of the world's public circuit-switched telephone networks, which includes mobile as well as fixed line telephones. It is the world's collection of interconnected voice-oriented public telephone networks, both commercial and government owned. Call forwarding services that route their traffic via VoIP can be subject to packet loss and therefore result in negative call quality. To the contrary, we will forward calls from your virtual number in Canada to India over the PSTN.
Establish a business presence in Ottawa
Setting up a virtual phone number in Ottawa allows you to establish a business presence in Ottawa - and Canada - without having a physical location. If your company has clients and prospective customers located in Ottawa, our service will allow these clients to call you just as though they were making a local call as opposed to an international call. We can help your business grow faster. Furthermore, one of the benefits of having a local call forwarding number in Ottawa is that the number is accessible from virtually any country, as opposed to toll free number in Canada (which may not necessarily be accessible from outside Canada).
Clients in Ottawa more likely to call a local number
than dial direct to India
It’s a simple fact that clients in Ottawa or elsewhere in Canada are more likely to dial a local number or, at least, a toll free telephone number as opposed to making an international call to India. Having a local number in Ottawa not only gives you the business presence in Canada, but it also indicates that you are serious about doing business.

What does the caller pay?
Your caller in Ottawa is responsible for local charges assessed by their local telecom provider for dialing your virtual or local phone number in Canada. The good news and that more and more telecom providers offer unlimited nation-wide calling plans in Canada, so it is likely that your callers in Canada would assume minimal cost. If your caller is calling from outside Canada, he/she will incur whatever charges their long distance provider assesses for making an international call to Canada.
If you opt for getting a Canadian toll free number, the caller pays nothing since this call is toll free from anywhere in Canada.
What does the account holder pay?
As the account holder, you pay the rate of forwarding the call from your virtual phone number in Ottawa to your "ring to" telephone number in India. Your rate depends on the plan (i.e., Basic, Value, Power, Premium or Enterprise) that you select (see below). Your "ring to" number may be a fixed land line or a mobile phone, and you may change it to another number in India or anywhere else in the world via online account management.
