I've been involved with a set-up like this recently and I can say,
beware of NAT on your user's phones with SIP.  One would think that
OpenVPN would bring it all together, but I'm still seeing DTMF not
working as it should using RTP.  Anyway, heads-up.

These guys have been very good to me:
Not the cheapest, but they can use IAX or SIP and they have been solid.
Stay far away from Broadvoice; you've been warned.

Not for all VoIP.
