    Go Vonage

    I switched to Vonage about 2 years ago and never looked back. Before that I had Southern Bell and ATT long distance. I was paying about $90 per month for a basic + package. And the service was just going down hill.

    Now I pay about $25 per month and get unlimited local and long distance.

    I just say, "GO" to Vonage.

    Why... @ Tony Troole

    Because with Vonage you're not tied to your computer. You plug your phone into the Vonage provided phone/computer router and then use your phone as you would normally.

    I have used it now for about three (or is it four?) years from the southern Caribbean, Canada, France and Korea. All you need is a high speed internet provider, wherever you are, and you pay a flat rate to call throughout North America on the basic plan or to Western Europe as well on the higher rate plan.

    It's brilliant!

    ...and every time I see *that* I think why not just get a bog router with a SIP VOIP port or two, plug a spare phone into it and have VOIP that works when your computer's off, doesn't leech your bandwidth, is standards compliant and gives you a vast choice of providers to choose from.

    But that's just me being picky I guess.

    Hi would you mind explaining how it leeches your bandwidth? I've used Vonage for nearly two years in the UK (ditching NTL) and think its brilliant but your statement is worrying.
