My SIP Switch is an open source project and a free service which allows using many SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) accounts with one SIP phone or SIP softphone. It is a customizable web based iPBX. The service can either be used online on www.mysipswitch.com or installed on a private version (on Windows or Linux with mono).
In order to phone with the cheapest rates of set of providers and/or to receives call from on different DID (virtual geographic numbers) without My SIP Switch, you would need as many phones as provider or to buy expensive pieces of hardware (so that they can support multiple SIP registrations) . My SIP Switch allows you using all your SIP accounts easily and effectively.
You need to create your dial plan (based on Asterisk syntax or in Ruby) which will control your outgoing and incoming calls. Note that the dial plan can also be made in RUBY and that creates another enormous bunch of possible features: number blocking, adding timers in call redirection, ENUM lookups, etc.
The service is completely free since the project it only based on signaling, it is cheap to host. It is being improved on a regular basis by a team of developers. The source code is written in C# and can be downloaded from: http://www.codeplex.com/mysipswitch
