How to use the “ Extended zones” page?

If you have a B2B2C telephone service, this page allows you to check the phone numbers that can be called without incurring long distance charges.

You can use this tool also from our FAQ on the following page: Extended areas.

Your local calling area is defined around your city

In this tool, you must choose your city to see all the phone numbers included in your local calling area. Find your city by following these steps.

  1. If you consult this tool for a company with a SPINET service, choose SIPNET, otherwise your province.
  2. From the drop-down menu under “City”, choose your city. If it is not in the list, choose the one that is closest.
  3. Now enter the area code and the next three digits of the number you want to call into the field with the name “Table Search”:
  4. Check out what’s displayed below. If it shows the name of a city and a number corresponding to the six digits you entered, then that number is part of your extended calling area. It is therefore free of charge for you. Otherwise, it is not included and will be counted as a long distance call.

Explore the breadth of your Extended Calling Area

Before entering the number in step 3 above, the displayed table shows all the cities and numbers that make up your extended area. The table has two columns. Here’s how to interpret them.

Column 1 (Cities): The cities which are indicated here are those which you can reach free of charge. They correspond to districts traditionally used by telephone companies, they may not correspond exactly to municipalities.

Column 2 (Exchanges): Clicking on the “+” sign brings up a list of city exchanges that are included in your extended local area. An exchange is defined by the first 6 digits of a phone number.

Example of a search

Do you live in the local Bearn area (819) and want to call someone in Lorrainville? Follow steps 1 through 4 above, and you will be confirmed that you can do so without long distance charges if their phone number begins with 819625.

Difference between our extended areas and those of traditional operators (Blue cities)

The exchanges denoted by a number in blue are normally long distance with traditional providers. Although you must dial a 1 before the number of your correspondents in these exchanges, these calls are also free and unlimited, since they are in a metropolitan area of B2B2C. Note that in your extended calling area, calls to your telephone number from exchanges in Blue will likely be long distance for the person calling you if they are not subscribed to the B2B2C telephone service.

Available for transfer to our services (Green cities)

B2B2C is able to port (transfer) your current phone number to our phone services if the city is coloured green.


The SIPNET service, offered on our commercial SIP phone access has one local calling area. This zone covers all the exchanges indicated in this list.

Enter the phone number or name of the city you are looking for in the search field at the top. The table will be automatically filtered to show only the corresponding cities.

If no city is shown, then the number or city you are looking for is not included in the SIPNET local area. Make sure you verify any other spellings for the city before abandoning your search.
