Making phone bills (and the phone company) obsolete

When was the last time you thought about how much your monthly phone bill cost? You and millions of others out there with home phones probably set up your phone service when you last moved and haven’t thought about it since.  Either you have accepted the phone bill as something you will always have to pay for, or you don’t think there is a reliable alternative.  Either way, you’re paying too much.  It’s time to escape from those legacy carrier fees and contracts that have held your pocketbook hostage all these years. It’s time to look at Ooma for reliable phone service using a home broadband Internet connection that will provide you with a fully integrated home phone system with advanced features that doesn’t require you to change the way you use your phone.   Check out our recent Today Show appearance, when Ooma was  featured as a hot holiday gift:

Ooma isn’t your traditional carrier. Ooma delivers its service over the Internet using the voice over internet protocol (VoIP). By using the Internet to place calls, Ooma is able to offer its users free home phone service with a suite of advanced calling features that legacy phone companies cannot match. Ooma allows you to call anywhere in the U.S. with no monthly fees and no contracts. You only pay once with Ooma – for the price of the Ooma device – and never pay a phone bill again. Your one-time purchase of an Ooma system gives you free home phone service with the outstanding voice quality and ease of use of a traditional landline. There are no headsets, no calling codes to enter, and no need to log onto a computer. With Ooma, use your phone like you always do, just pick up and dial.

For many consumers, the advantages to placing calls over the Internet with Ooma are clear. Stop being nickeled and dimed by your traditional phone service provider.  Start using the broadband Internet connection you already have to provide you with crystal clear, free home phone service.

This is an exciting time in the home communications market.  It’s time for us all to step back and think twice about the things we use and rely on, how much we pay for them, and if there is a better way.  Whether it’s Ooma or another approach, the point is that the increase in home broadband services should offset, or in this case, eliminate, the need for other services.  Like old-time phone carrier contracts and monthly bills that we have come to accept as something we just have to tolerate.  Well, we don’t.

Join us as we explore these ideas.  We are excited to hear from you and discuss these ideas. There will be many new features available in the coming months and years and we will provide a thoughtful platform to discuss them.  Click here to read some of the common questions we receive about Ooma, and please let us know if you have some of your own.
