All, In a funny coincidence, yesterday I received our monthly phone bill. $130! There's only two of us, and we don't even make *that* many calls. I was a little ticked, to say the least. Later that evening, I was checking my Yahoo mail and did something I've never done before: I clicked one of their banner ads. It was for a company called Vonage, who claimed to offer unlimited local & domestic long distance phone service over your existing broadband connection for only $40/month. Hmmm, let's see.... I already pay $45/month for my cable modem and lately I've been paying around $100/month for my phone service. Sounds like I could cut my monthly phone bill in half or more. Problem is, if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is. So what's the deal with this technology? Anybody here ever used it? I'm about to do my usual googling of this product, but I'd like to hear from any of you that have tried this or similar services. Thanks, -Brett. PS - One sticking point for me might be that my father-in-law is a retired Ameritech employee. My wife already brought that up when I mentioned this to her last night... but I'll deal with that when the time comes.
