Great on high speed
on February 18, 2012
The price is great for calling anywhere in the US or Canada with no cost. If your upload speed is slow then the other party will have difficulty hearing you as it breaks up constantly. If your download is poor the person your speaking to will break up as well. Just make sure you have at least a 2mbs download speed minimum and 600 kbs upload to get goog calling features. I like the fact I can plug this into my router rather than into the computer as You don't need to have your computer running all the time to have a phone. The messaging system is good as it will record your incoming voice messages and send to your email. You just have to set up and enable this feature.
Because I am located in nova scotia they assign a standard area code which is 801, which makes all local people who try to call me long distance calls. This device is also good when on the go, as it can be used with my laptop and I can plug in on the go and make calls anywhere in north america. Overall I only use this device for making calls, and for the price, it's worth it. You need good bandwidth to have good reception as well so don't be downloading or streaming at the same time as you may find the clarity will become scatchy.
