Do You Use Vonage?
I know there are alot of people these days who use Vonage or a similar VOIP telephone system through their broadband connection. I do and it’s been great so far. Cheaper rates, free long distance plus all the bells and whistles that other companies charge an arm and a leg for.
Sure, occasionally the cable goes out and we can’t use the phone, but we also have a cell (which I believe is essential when using VOIP unless you have another landline) so it’s never been a big hassle. But the one thing that has come out over the news lately is the problems VOIP customers have when trying to dial 9-1-1.
Unfortunately, here in Deltona, a family lost their baby when trying to dial 9-1-1 using their Vonage phone line. Now they are suing and trying to shut it down. I know when I signed up I did the 9-1-1 form with my address and everything and hadn’t really thought about it since.
I think I’ll be looking into it a little more now. What do you think?
