Categories > VoIP > ooma > Ooma OOMATELO2 Free VoIP Home Service (Telo 2)

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Wonderful, after some expected teething pains
Pros: Very low cost land-line like VOIP service. Absolutely reliable except for during an extended power failure when my UPS battery was used up. It uses negligible bandwidth requirements on the internet connection -- hardly any data bandwidth up or down even during a call. Clean and brilliant sound at both ends of the call.
Cons: It is mandatory that you provide a high QUALITY internet connection with only modest speed requirements. Speed is not the issue here. Low ping rates, low jitter and no dropped packets are highly desirable.

If you slave this unit behind your router, you must use a router that can give the OOMA Telo the highest QOS priority. They prefer (naturally) that you slave your WiFi router to the OOMA Telo, and this works fine. The Telo is a basic wired router in it's own right. But the Ethernet connections on the Telo are only 100 Mbps, not Gigabit as my router and modem are. This is a potential bottleneck if your ISP service speed is high enough.
Other Thoughts: I can't talk about this $10 mandatory charge thing except that I never saw it -- I set it up in spring of 2015. I never accepted the "premier" service. I only pay about $5 a month for state and local taxes and fees and that's all I've ever paid monthly to OOMA. The one time $40 fee to transfer the phone number and the initial purchase price of the Telo device are the only other charges I've ever paid.

Sourceforge has an excellent speed-test to help you determine ISP service suitability for VOIP. This test consistently rates my MOS at 4.4 out of 5. The MOS rating is the most important rating here for VOIP service.

I expected to have teething pains, and I did. First, the ISP service, though plenty fast enough, wasn't up to VOIP quality. It took me some time, research and interfacing with Comcast Xfinity to get this right. But, in fairness, they did good work and it's fine now. I own my own Arris SB6183 cable modem and a quality ASUS 802.11ac router.

After the ISP was straightened out, I still had undesirable stuttering -- particularly detected by people we were talking to. One call to OOMA support, the guy ran some tests from his end, determined that he could make some parameter changes, and everything improved immeasurably.

After the OOMA service was good and stable, we transferred our old POTS service phone number to the OOMA service for $40 without any problem, and then canceled the POTS service entirely.

We save a lot of money every month. I'm pleased, and our OOMA is wife approved!

Categories > VoIP > Obihai Technology, Inc. > Obihai OBi200 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 This company is THE WORST
Pros: It could work fine
Cons: Obihai has come up with a way to keep people paying for what should be an OK product. Make people pay for "support" each year, by making sure the product won't work unless you pay for this "support." It is called ransomware, it is an outrageous business tactic, and I would hope people will avoid this product because of it.

It has been a MAJOR PROBLEM, hours and hours wasted because I purchased it. Don't believe me, that's OK, just look up "there is no service available" and google will fill in the obihai part, that's how common it is. Then it works for a call, then it doesn't work again. Remember if you buy it, after hearing it over and over, "there is no service available to complete your call," you might start to understand that you were warned.
Other Thoughts: Do your research BEFORE you ever think to purchase this from one of the worst companies I have encountered. How long before they figure out you need to pay more this year for your "support?"

Categories > VoIP > Obihai Technology, Inc. > Obihai OBi200 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Beware Obihai SCAM
Pros: Works for a while, until Obihai decides to change the firmware.
Cons: When Obihai changes the firmware, the VoIP box stops working. You have to pay them to get the firmware update.
Other Thoughts: I bought an Obi100 and the Google Voice interface stopped working after a while. Obihai account said I had to pay to get latest firmware to work with Google Voice again. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Obsolete, DON'T BUY
Pros: None
Cons: Obihai themselves have said they aren't supporting the product any longer.
You'll have to pay their support fee every year if you buy it, not knowing how much the support fee will be in the future.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Plug and Play - Not much more to say
Pros: I like that it was cost effective, available, and that it works.
Cons: It doesn't come with the other section of power cable that actually plugs into the wall outlet.
Other Thoughts: The lack of the other section of power cable was my oversight, not there's. Would recommend.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great product and no telemarketer calls on it!
Pros: No monthly phone bills.
Cons: I overlooked a google voice setting so I didn't get incoming calls. Make sure you have that check box settings correct.
Other Thoughts: Yearly 911 fee. It is optional and its like $15 for a year but it is worth the safety. I only got this as an emergency phone in case there was an issue with our cell phones so yeah.
