Vonage I am not certain how I missed your follow-up post, and others have already supplied



I am not certain how I missed your follow-up post, and others have already supplied the verbiage for the acronym, but let me tell you what a CLEC actually is and why it is important. (Take some of this with a grain of salt and not as absolute truth. It should be close enough to what is going on to explain what a CLEC is and why it is important.)

There are two types of phone companies, a CLEC and an ILEC (incumbent local exchange carrier). In most cases all of the residential last mile phone lines are handled by the ILEC. Those lines are routed into a central office (CO) owned and managed by the ILEC. Inside the central office the lines can be terminated on equipment owned by a CLEC. The CLEC rents space from the ILEC for this purpose.

In many cases the lines are simply aggregated together and delivered to the CLEC's office. The CLEC's office can handle lines from multiple COs.

What is important to us is to understand what happens when a call is placed to a number controlled by the CLEC. The calling party's phone company will look up the number to see what company handles that number and then route the call to that company. The CLEC will then route the call through the CO and out to the customer's house.

When Vonage wants to provide local numbers for an area it goes to a CLEC and works out a deal. It sticks some equipment in the CLEC office so that when a call comes in for a Vonage subscriber it is routed to this equipment and then over the Internet. This is why your physical location doesn't need to match your area code with Vonage.

The bottom line of this story is that if there is no CLEC to handle local call termination then there is nobody for Vonage to work with. It is likely that there are CLECs in your area (most CLECs work strictly with business lines and not residential lines), however, if there isn't one, or there isn't one that Vonage normally works with, then you can expect it to take longer before Vonage can provide local numbers in your area.
