[Costco] COSTCO: OOMA TELO free home phone service now $99.99

Was at Richmond Hill Costco and noticed the price of Ooma Telo unit went down to $99.99. I purchased this a few weeks ago @ $150 and already thought it was a good price. got it price adjusted of course. FS BB still selling for $180.

Calls have been very clear so far and i'm only using the lite internet speed with Rogers cable.

I pay about $4.00/month for regulatory fees. With high speed internet make sure you have atleast 1.5mb/s upload. So far its been great!

Monthly fees work out to $3.9x per month - which is for taxes and 911 if I am not mistaken. They have Ooma with the wireless USB adapter for sale this week online for $149.

This allows you to put the Ooma device anywhere in the house - doesn't have to be near the router.

From OOMA canada website you can port number for free if you signup for one year premium service ($119.99 + tax). Works out about $10.00 + tax per month. Time to check local Costco for ooma device.

It's actually $99.97 which means Costco is clearing this item out. I've had ooma for a couple of months and after I setup my router's QoS it's been perfect. Highly recommended!

I believe you can port your number for about $30 if you don't want to sign up for the premium service.

Very tempting was already looking at Ooma. Only thing is US calling is not included in $4/month plan, have to upgrade to premium for $10/month.

Is 1.5mb/s upload really required? I have crappy 1mb/s with rogers. Doesn't seem to affect net talk or magic jack. Im guessing Ooma requires more bandwidth?

I checked to see if they have phone numbers in my area and they don't so does that mean anyone local who calls me would be calling long distance?

What's the difference between this and the magic jack? I pay $30/ year with magic jack plus.

You don't need the premium for U. S calls, you can pay by the minute. Its something like 1.5 cents a minute.

Ooma is fine with less. If you install it the recommended way, before the router it guarantees itself enough bandwidth so your calls aren't affected if you're uploading large files while on the phone.

Quality is significantly better than majicjack.

Thanks. I think I am gonna get Ooma. Tired of all the issues ive had with magic jack and net talk. Same thing always happens, they dont have enough money to upgrade their servers when they get too many customers. The quality just goes down.

Does any one know if the Ooma offered in store for $100 is the same exact deal as the one online with the wifi adapter included? If it is then that's a steal!
