Need Asterisk Linux Servers & Phone Lines in Pakistan/India

As part of the South Asia Quake Help Blog & Wiki efforts, we are trying to setup a SMS2Web/Web2SMS system in Pakistan/India (affected areas). As has been in other recent disasters, SMS seems to be the only available communication means in the affected areas.

This system if setup could be used by relief workers, affected people and other volunteers to exchange important information about their relief needs, situation reports etc. Major Relief Agencies have shown interest in such a system. We have been trying for the last 72 hours or so with little success.

We are looking Asterisk (Open Source PBX) Linux Servers, some Asterisk Hardware and a few phone lines in Pakistan or India. More detailed information on what's needed is available here
