This is off-topic a little, but if you do this ensure that the internal wiring is no longer connected in any way to the demarc plug from the outside network, becauses if there is still voltage in the lines (even if it's a very low voltage), it -could- (but not necessarily would) damage the Voip adapter.

Bump! Same here. I just signed up to Vonage about two weeks ago and am currently evaluating it. So far - so good. Everything is working well. Set up a virtual number for my Mom snowbirding in Tampa. Works great. My in-laws have been using Vonage in the States for over a year now. I'll keep my land-line for a couple more weeks then I think it's "Good-bye ma Bell".

I pay $55.18 per month to Vonage. This is because I have the $39.99 plan, plus I have a virtual number in Halifax for $7.99 per month. Plus GST and PST totals $55.18. With Bell, my bill was close to $100 per month.

I'm still finding my phone bill to be a bit pricey. I may look at changing my plan to the $19.95 plan since most of my long distance is to Halifax from here. People in Halifax could easily just call me back using my Halifax number. It's a bit of a hassle though, but possibly worth the $23.00 per month savings! I'm hoping that Vonage will lower their rates a bit more too. Then I might stay with the unlimited Canada/US plan. It is nice not having to pay any attention to how much time you spend on the phone.

I was worried at first I'd go over my 500 mins, but then we only used like 200.. LoL..

it is a bit of a hassel if you are goign to ask them to call back, but ****, if you're saving 22/mo then do it.. lol.. thats why I went with the 500 plan, cuz I'm too cheap, and I already have a cell phone bill to pay too thas around $50/mo...

Subject: Re: Is there such a thing as a "Canadian" Voip?
From: Marc Bissonnette <dragnet@internalysis.com>

Personally, if I were in the market for Voip, I'd certainly give a
smaller, Canadian company a chance with the service, while keeping a
landline as a backup. Many of the smaller ISPs in Canada are run by some
pretty (heck: exceptionally) bright people and to them, setting up some
quality Voip services would be child's play. As always, though, when
trying a newer technology, keep a reliable backup for a while, though.

I will say this, however, whether you're using a small company or a large
one and I'm speaking as a firefighter/emergency services worker, rather
than an IT guy: If you've got small children, elderly people or medically
fragile people in your home, ALWAYS, ALWAYS keep a landline as a backup
for 911 services ***EVEN IF YOUR Voip PROVIDER SERVES 911***

I can give you a solid example, though it's not Voip related: Last
winter, we (Whitewater Fire Department) were called to a chimney fire.
Now, normally a chimney fire is not a big deal, if it's called in right
away. Most of the time, we'll get it out with zero or close to zero
damage (Maybe the rain cap will need to be replaced if it was removed in
a hurry or it was exposed to open flame for too long)

Anyway, we got to a chimney fire that had been burning for an hour and a
half - the fire spread from the chimney into the walls and rafters and
ended up causing thousands and thousands of dollars in damage to the
home. When we asked the homeowner why she hadn't called it in as soon as
she saw smoke, she said she'd tried, but couldn't get service: She'd
replaced her land line with a cell phone to save money. Unfortunately,
for whatever reason, her reception sucked that night and ended up having
to drive a mile and a half to a neighbour's (the closest that was home)
to call 911. It took her longer because she needed to get her 9 month
old, her 4 year old and her 8 year old dressed and ready to go out.

All that damage, not to mention the risk to life and limb, because she
didn't want to keep a basic $30 landline as an emergency backup Sad
