Best VoiP Service

I switched my land line to Fongo VoiP about a year ago. I have had zero issues. The voice quality is crystal clear. $4.95/month and they have great prices for international calling.
Highly recommend this company.

Dumped landline for VOIP phone

I dumped my landline and switched to VOIP phone from Fongo. Free upgrade from AAA Security from old landline monitoring system to Internet. It's $6 per month extra, but I saved $34 per month from BellMTS for the landline.
Fongo shipped me the adapter via FedEx in a couple of business days, setup was easy and smooth. Phone line was crystal clear, no echo at all. Long distance fees are comparable to BellMTS or Shaw Cable. Porting my existing phone # was within 10 calendar days.
It's been over 5 weeks, working great.

Saving $30/month with Fongo

Saving $30/month ($360/year) with Fongo on my cell. I have a Data-only plan - and make all calls/texts on Fongo.

Call quality is good enough - no way i will ever go back to paying big $$$$$ to the Big-4 Telco Crooks!

Fongo was established in 2012, is a sister company of Fibernetics HQ in Cambridge, ON. At first, the focus was to deliver mobile dialer Apps using mobile VoIP. Dell VOICE was a marketing effort to explore the mobile VoIP space, which ultimately Dell decided to abandon the initiative and subsequently all subscribers were moved to Fongo/Fibernetics. Fongo also provides desktop Apps.

Fibernetics also owns which provides a free number and Canadian calling to most Canadian cities for free. Shall be noted is the commercial implementation of the same service. Dell VOICE/Fongo and/or Freephoneline may be good/cheap alternatives but continue to be plagued by reliability issues and Fongo customers reviews often observe a poor customer support experience along with the low or unreliable quality of service.

Also shall be noted Fongo started charging $0.04 connection fees to all calls that are outside their FREE calling cities. This is in addition to the $0.02 Fongo charged for calls outside the denominated FREE calling zones.  The Fongo Free Calling zone has more than 700 cities/towns, across the ten Canadian provinces and in more than 30 metropolitan areas.

Fongo does support number porting, but in which case there is an additional fee of $9.95 or $25, depending on when you do the transfer. It's cheaper to order the transfer during registration.

The setup fee of $59 includes a locked pre-configured ATA, in which you'll still have to also add $14.95 for shipping.

Early in 2013 Fongo made a very public offer for Wireless carrier Wind Mobile, but experts agreed that was a publicity stunt and not a serious offer. Nonetheless, that showed intriguing and for now unaccomplished ambitions.

In all Fongo presents an alternative in the Home Phone market, but if looking for a Home Phone a no-frills offering deal may be better with Talkit or VoIP Much (more features) and if looking for more rich features, free number transfer, a mature provider will find Phone Power as being one of the top providers.

Can you use an existing phone number that is registered to me

Hi Barry, Technically yes. For that matter most VoIP Home Providers are capable to porting most of the phone numbers. Note some phone numbers may not be available for porting, some old Bell lines for example. Though that is something outside the VoIP Home Phone provider; since Bell or whomever hosts the number have to upgrade the infrastructure first. Also note in the case of Fongo, they charge $25 + Tax to port the number. While the charging for number portability is not unusual, most providers nowadays do this for free. Hope this was helpful.
