Hey I`ve decided to try Vonage and was wondering if anyone has had positive or negative experiences with them?
My father has used vonage for about a year and has been pleased. I have been using Packet 8 VOIP for the past 6 months. Both services have occasional interruptions, but are quickly fixed. Packet 8 (probably Vonage as well) allows you to automatically forward calls to another number when the system goes down.
In my experience the immense savings have far outweighed the occasional inconvenience. Even if the system fails, don`t we all have cell phones?
Hi! I use Vonage for my business line and fax line. At first I had some trouble with it but in the past few months it`s been fine. I`m thinking maybe they upgraded somehow. It probably depends on your area.
I just got an email from them saying that if I refer a person I get 2 months free and the person gets a free month - so if you do end up signing up and you`d like a free month, I just need your email address. It helps both of us. If not, that`s totally cool.
my major issue is sound quality. i always sound fainter than the person calling across a conventional line and how in the world am i supposed to dominate a conversation that way?! but more seriously, when i do phone-radio interviews from home here and there, my sound quality ain`t great. ask chris (entrepreneurd) how important THAT is.
also, when your internet service goes down, and thus your phone service goes down, you`re doomed unless your cell phone works inside your house (which, in my film noir life, mine doesn`t).
the rate is awesome, though, and the billing crystal clear. i tried the refer-a-friend stunt, too, and didn`t get any results.
If you are getting fainter, or resonance on the other end of the line. Just lower your bandwidth... The reason for that is telephones have a limimted bandwidth of 3-3K... That should solve your problems...
Has any one tried the Software version?
