    I use Skype when I travel. It fills the need but I don't think I'd use it as my primary homebase phone provider.

    I've dealt with a customer on skype and the sound quality and delays are outrageous. Plus, I dont think you can port a number to skype right?

    I was looking for more of a residential replacement type service.

    My parents have vonage, but the sound quality is not the best at times (but that mght be their connection) and the price is a lot more than other services that *seem* to have better reviews.

    One things I absolutely have to have is number porting and simultaneous ringing. I'd like to be able to connect to it from any old SIP client too, but I'll live if I can't amke that work.

    Yeah cool, Asterisk is a nice open source server software, but they aren't a provider.

    I used Vonage. Thirty something bucks a month for 500 outgoing mins, unlimited incoming, and a dedicated fax line. Sound quality is always fine and I use the bandwidth saver to the max.

    I had AT&T's VOIP service and it sucked out loud. Their routers failed THREE TIMES on us, the service was unreliable, and the customer service sucked worse than anything I've ever seen.

    I'm on Time-Warner's now and I've been very happy with it.
