So far I've had good experience and that's going on 3 months with the
service. An issue with ring voltage was resolved to my satisfaction.

I did note that email doesn't get answered but if you have patience
you can call and eventually get answers. Average wait is 30 minutes.

The quality of the line is very good and the price is right.

You get what you pay for. If you want instant service and all the
features go ahead and pay your ILEC or a CLEC. But if you want good
sound and so-so service stick with Vonage. I've got a fairly high
tolerance for lack of service when the price is right so I'll stay
with Vonage.
