PostPosted: Sun Oct 23, 2005 1:32 pm    Post subject: Anyone have their POTS offer them VoIP? Reply with quote Back to top

Hi again,

Just wondering if anyone has ran into this. I subscribed to Vonage, and this past Friday my local telco (Frontier) called and offered a boat load of discounts. I'm not sure if it was Voip, because I wasn't the one who took the call.

I recently had DSL for a couple of days, it was just to slow so I went back to roadrunner.

They're offering me a Phone service with all the features, DSL, and Dish network for like $99/mo. I'm not going to bite thought. We tried a few months back to get that package. Dish didn't show for two install appointments, when they finally showed the tech didn't have a long enough ladder. In the end we went with Digital cable, Road runner and Vonage.

I would really like to know how Frontier knows I have vonage.. It's weird that they would call out of the blue and offer all those discounts.

Just wondering if anyone else has had this experence.

Dan

I could see in the future telco's offering Voip over there DSL lines.

The telcos will be glad to offer DSL. And for some that may work for now. But remember, you are still on that dedicated pair of copper and are depending being close to a repeater or the CO. DSL is just a finger in the massive leak about to spawn. The future will split in a few ways, but none that I see include the massive dedicated copper wires. Options include broadband, fiber, wireless, and satellite. Right now the largest install base is broadband so they will lead the way. It will be interesting to see how far the traditional telcos go with fiber. It is rather economical to have fiber in metropolitan areas. But there are a lot of rural areas with broadband that won't have fiber for some time. Then there is information where I have read that Vonage is working with Hughes to solve issues with satellite. If they can get an acceptable satellite system working then things will really heat up. Grab the wave. This is going to be a wild and crazy ride.

Verizon keeps sending me offers for landline saying that they want me back as a customer. Offering me great deals such as 75.00 a month for all the features I have now with Vonage. What a deal Rolling Eyes

Same here. They asked me why I left; I said cost. They offered me a package deal at 50% more than I had been paying. <sigh>

my telco never tried to offer me Voip, but cablevision did. I told them flat out "I don't use the phone." I still got a SBV 5120 modem. The 2 phone jacks are taped off...


Unless someone can figure out how to UNLOCK IT!!!
