I loved my Qwest Broadband phone. $25 / month for everything. Then I get a letter last week: "Sorry we're not doing it anymore and you will lose your number the end of December". What to do?
I looked at Comcast. $35-$40 / month. Ummm, no. Vonage, $26 / month. Maybe. Then I saw Sprint Phone Connect. $20 / month. It's basically a stationary cell phone into which you can plug in two analogue phones. And if one of the phones is a base station, you can put them around the house.
Since it has a battery backup, if you lose power, it will still work for a few hours (lose power, no Internet, no VoiP). However it doesn't have the strong feature set any VoiP phone has, but it does integrate into Google Voice that does have those features. So we're going to try this out.
I'm still keeping a landline with CenturyLink, but defeaturing options on that line.
Great acquistion strategy there CenturyLink.
UPDATE: The call quality is subpar on Sprint Connect. Say a 6 on a scale of 10.
Tried two different phones so it is the unit. And I get 5 bars, so that's not the issue. Sending the unit back and trying Vonage.
