My Vonage IP phone arrived today. I simply plugged it into my home network — waited two minutes — and can now make calls using a regular telephone handset anywhere that travels through the Internet. The quality is excellent — and I am blown away by how easy it was to set up. THIS IS A TREND AND COMPANY TO WATCH, and it should leave telephone companies running scared.
You can call me at 718-576-1980 — Normal business hours only! Then think that your call has been routed from your phone, to Vonage …. who then send it to me through the Internet. It comes into my house via my cable modem and into a little box plugged into an ethernet connection beside my desk — and from there, into a regular, traditional phone.
I’m blown away.
