thanks for the nice words!
I don't use Vonage now but I did for about a year. I stopped because it was very early on in its life - and the technology was iffy. I operate my writing business from home and couldn't rely, at the time on consistent quality. There was a periodic beep on the signal that made peopel thin I was recording the call. I couldn't keep doing that.
Now, though, I have several friends who use Vonage and are quite pleased. I just never went back, but I may - I think aobut it all the time. The price is right.
Thank you for the thumbs up for Vonage. I bundle with my cable company and my phone, cable and DSL service will go from an introductory $104 right now to $146 shortly. i expect to lose some income with my next Birthday (Sept.) and am looking for ways to reduce spending, not add. The $146 is impossible. If I go with a Dish system, I can get better reception, DSL service through that system and Vonage. I have wanted to hear how folks feel about Vonage. Obviously, right now, if my cable does go out, that means my land phone does as well. So, I won't give up my cell phone but have a very basic plan with it.
Trouble is, a Dish system will probably offer an introductory price which will eventually go up as well. I keep hearing stories on PBS about businesses that still install old-fashioned antennas. I could probably put one in my attic crawl space (with a townhome, I cannot put one on the roof). It would be a one-time charge and no more monthly cable or dish bills. I'd have to keep my cable company for my land phone and my DSL computer service.
Really glad to discover this group because little ideas can add up to big savings. I didn't see a TV until I was 12 years old and all we had was a pair of rabbit ears. I also admire the individual who doesn't watch TV. Imagine not being able to see a telly and hear familiar voices from your favorite shows. An appalling idea! (That is me being facetious.)
