This is from a Fongo staff member on the forum:
Nothing is changing with your FPL accounts, we don't provide technical support for FPL and this is an offer for those that would like the peace of mind of technical support and a maintenance-free pre-configured ATA
So it sounds like nothing is really changing.

Been with them since September 2011. There are occasional issues, but otherwise it's been great.

yeah. I hope they don't end the service... No need for tech support really. Maybe all just a marketing ploy

http://forum.fongo.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19571

seems like there is no real support right now anyways.
Yea just checked, and a Fongo Specialist chimed in and said nothing is changing lol. It's just in case anyone on FPL want peace of mind of having support and a preconfigured ATA.

Exactly. Other than our concern that this a precursor to a shutdown I always thought I was "on my own" with this service.

I don't know what people are talking about. I just tested FPL and it's still working. Poorly as usual but nothing has changed.

Hi,
For the last few days when I'm in a conversation about 7 min into the call the other person can't hear me but I can hear them. This has never happened to me before since I've had the service 3 years ago.

Mind you I've never done an update on the box before and not sure how to do it?

no its a promotion thing. Freephoneline is the same. No difference, not closing. Ignore the e-mail unless you are interested in going to Fongo for another reason.

I've been with them since Nov 2017, no real issues.
I'm not a big home phone user myself, but my parents & in-laws use it when they come over.
Hopefully, it remains unchanged.

Update on May 1, 2018 : Have been using this for more than 9 years now, and personally speaking, works like a charm and found no difference between Bell voice quality and FPL as long as you use G711u codec.
Wow! proven to be a great money-saving product worth of RFD recognition.

Only 2 lights are on obi202. Is that normal¿? It might be my cordless phones too pos vetch ones. I still can’t use it. Pretty sure it’s the box. I can use fpl for voip apps like groundwire and zoipher using my sip account settings

I thought the FPL only has the free canadian (not US) calls. Can the Google Hangout be added to the OBI adapter or FPL so that all outbound long distance calls to USA are free? If so, how?
