Vonage VOIP Service

I'm curious how many of you are using (or have tried) Vonage?

I was looking over a Vonage site this morning, which actually offers a lot more information than I've ever gotten from their tv commercials (entertaining as they are!).

It's an affiliate site actually, but an excellent one. Right on the main page they list all of the features, services and benefits - as well as the latest Vonage news and current specials. They also have a very active discussion forum...

I say it's an excellent affiliate site, because it really encouraged me to look into the service more. There's really not much lacking here on the site if you want to get all the details, or find out just how good the service is. It's very professionally done too - a nice looking site.

I have been using Skype for the last couple of years, and I am curious how these two services compare. I'm happy with the quality of Skype - and of course its free to use so long as you are calling other Skype users that are online (vs calling landlines).

But I'm still paying over $100/month to my local telephone company - which makes me think perhaps I should look into Vonage as well. From what I understand you have to keep a DSL subscription with your local phone company, so that cost would be in addition to the $24.95/month for Vonage - correct?

I'd love to hear from someone that is actually using Vonage... About how much are you saving, and which features are you most pleased with?

  1. Lynn you should be able to ask your phone company for a dsl only line. Alot of people are doing that because they are droppping their land lines and want to use their cell phone only but need to keep their high-speed internet.

    Another option might be is to go for a cable modem.

  2. True - those are a couple of good ideas! Thanks ;)

  3. I have been using Vonage almost 2 years now and I love it! They are inexpensive and their tech support is excellent. I had a problem dialing Europe once and it was fixed within minutes. International rates are affordable and I use that the most.

    There was one time that I was charged for 180min for an international call and not 18min, and they actually gave us 2 months free :)

    Also, you can set it up to recieve your voice mail in your email. One more thing I have and have no idea why lol is a 1-800 number. I think it costs $4 a month for 100 minutes.

    I am really happy with their service. :)

  4. Hi, I have had Vonage almost for 2 years now. I just bought the vonage, Linksys wireless router at best buy and signed up. I love it. The router went out once and they replaced it but in the mean time I just went to the website and had the calls forwarded to my cell. I get the voicemails in my email ( and set it to fotward the email to my cell as a text message so I know when I have a new voicemail) and i check their website to see my caller id when im not home. I just discovered your blog today and I like it. Thanks for all the useful information

  5. Nice to meet you, Marcus - glad you stopped by! ;)

    It's great to hear from a couple of happy users. Thanks for taking the time to share your experieces!

  6. I have used Vonage for almost 4 years and the service is great BUT the prices, well the taxes that are charged, are too much. I have a main phone number, one virtual number and a fax line which should come to $40 but my bill is almost $62 which amounts to about 50% additional charges on taxes. This is ridiculous. And it keeps going up every couple months.

Trackbacks

  1. [...] When I wrote about Vonage last week, a couple of you replied that you’d had a great experience with them and gave a thumbs up for their service. I’m still torn on making the switch though, so I decided to check out some other reviews. [...]
