Well, I went and purchased a Vontage
voice over ip account sometime last week and the hardware came over the weekend. So far I've been pretty happy with it. The quality is quite good. The one thing I didn't really think about when I purchased it is that they don't have a hub in Kingston, and thus I can't get a local number. So anyone calling me is technically dialing long distance to Ottawa right now in order to reach me. However, I don't really mind too much as it will keep people from calling me as much. The main reason I bought it is that it's alot cheaper than bell ($19.95 /month) and it has some really good long distance rates overseas. Specifically Ethiopia where my girlfriend is right now. With this phone is $0.59/minute where as bell is $3 a minute without a long distance plan or $1.55 a minute with a long distance plan. So all in all I'm very happy with it, and if they get a hub in Kingston at some point it'll be just perfect.
