PostPosted: Mon May 08, 2006 1:28 pm    Post subject: Will Vonage work if I used it with SBC DSL? Reply with quote Back to top

For the past couple years i've been using cable to get my internet and i've had my Vonage hooked up to it no problem.

Unfortunately, I am moving to a place where the only option for broadband is DSL provided by SBC. I've had DSL from SBC in the past and know that I have to have a phone line also just to get my DSL. I really dislike DSL, especially from SBC.

But I just want to know if my Vonage service will work over DSL provided by SBC. Will SBC do anything to disable usage of Vonage or other VOIP's that aren't their own? I'm sure they would love to do this, but I don't know if they actually do it. Does anyone know?

i believe it will be possible as long as there is an ethernet port available. you can actually ask sbc if they offer naked dsl so you really would just use their phone line for the dsl connection. hope this helps

I've kept my POTS line with SBC and had Vonage through DSL since December. I'm less than a mile from my nearest central office and have the pro service (3 mbps down and 384 up). I'm using the Hawking HBB1 booster to handle QOS. It all works quite well.

You should ask about naked DSL if you're opening a new account.

They are supposed to offer naked DSL according to the terms of their merger. Of course, when they do so is another story. I've heard of at least one person getting someone there to tell them they could do it, but it involved major hoop jumping, (which I can't recall).. yep, they're worth hating...

FWIW, I've had better luck with Vonage over DSL connections than I have over cable connections. By all means, give the naked DSL a try. They'll probably say no a few times before they'll give in and do it, but it's worth a shot. Also, don't let them sucker you into one of their higher-priced phone packages. Most phone cos offer a "lifeline" service, where there are only a few local calls allowed, but these plans go for $6-12.

i had a little success,
they kept me at 20 bux for 3mb/s download and let me get the $5 measured phone line (instead of keeping me at the $25 phone line that I "had to have" in order to get the dsl special price) after i threatened to quit, so i guess 25 bux plus some bs taxes is not too bad for dsl

but it cost me an hour and a half on the phone to get it all straigtened out

You had better luck than I did. I just called and asked about the standalone DSL. They said I would have to pay $44.99 for DSL w/no phone line (the mid-speed), or pay $34.99 for the basic speed.

I've been calling all month about this, and finally the guy said today that they are making this available on June 13. However, the prices are more expensive than other DSL packages. Right now I'm paying $17.99 for AT&T/SBC DSL. Add on the $33 phone package (caller ID, VM), and the $3 Long Distance (they charge $9.99 to cancel long distance completely), and I'm paying over $50 for the two items.

I can get the LifeLine plan for $13 (You have to qualify, that's w/taxes and fees), keep the $17.99, and get Vonage for $15, but that's still $46 a month. It would cost more to switch over. I am so sick of phone companies, but I love my DSL. I have to keep my home # for my party plan business, but would like to switch it over to Voip.
