Hi Pat:

I just want to put in a good word for Vonage. I got it in December
and I love it. I have saved over $300 since I got it. There are some
initial problems with getting your number transferred over, however,
this is not due to Vonage but the LECs. I do international calling
especially to Australia. Unlike the long distance companies they do
not charge you exorbitant rates because you are not on a international
long distance plan. There have been complaints about the 911 service
but the complaints are unwarranted. You just go to the website and
give them your correct address. Since Vonage is centered in NJ I have
to pay all the taxes still my bill is less than $29 a month inclusive
of taxes and everything else. I love the fact that when I go on
travel I can forward to my cell phone. If you do go to Vonage, please
sign up via this digest/newsgroup. It helps to pay the bills.


It's only been a couple of weeks since I last posted as opposed to a decade
for my previous post. Thanks for remembering me. It is through this
digest that I got my interest stoked in telephony.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: You know, and I know it is about that
simple to sign up with Vonage and get _reasonable_ 911 service, even
if not perfect, as in 'e-911'. And although there were some problems
in general with VOIP sound quality (due to limits on bandwidth in the
beginning, it has gotten much better in recent months). I still have
Vonage e-coupons available for anyone who wants a month of free Vonage
service. Just write me and ask for one,
and you will have it back in email a day or two later.

And I notice it did not take you another decade to write to me again,
and for that I thank you! But you never did tell me if you were still
in the Milwaukee area, nor whatever happened to your newsgroup/Digest.
