Anyone using VoIP at home?

I’m thinking of dumping my phone service for VoIP. It would save me about $30 per month. Has anyone tried it yet ? If so what has been your experience ? (i.e. call quality, 911 service, equipment issues, customer service), and which service did you use ? I’ve been looking into VOnage only because it is the most heavily advertised.

Well I use Skype for my overseas conversations…but for US calls i have unlimited longdistance …day / night with my local carrier…along with DSL…all for one small price…

I have heard names like packet8 and broadvoice
There must be somewhere a review of different services, maybe Consumers Reports style, or others.

This company has comparison to Vonage and ATT (not independant comparison)

i use my cell phone constantly, but am considering some kind of VOIP for my next apartment. thats up to the gf, and if i can convince her, though.

the big problem (that i’ve seen/heard) is local 911 service through the fone.

Nope, since there isn’t a good, cheap wireless voip phone yet that can also connect to local telephone companies.

I’m beta testing the AOL VoIP service. Seems to work pretty good. Lot’s of fancy call handling options.
