The Ooma Hub is a VoIP Internet telephony box that you plug into your broadband line to get cheap and free phone calls. It also has an in-built answering machine and you can use your existing phone number if you keep your old phone service ticking over on a low cost plan. The box costs $249.00 and there’s also a premier service which offers stuff like call screening and 3–way conferencing. It’s obviously aimed at the technophobic crowd, but I’m not sure what advantages it has over a simple Skype Dualphone set up.
Your one-time ooma purchase of an award-winning ooma Hub device frees your phone service. You’ll get: * Unlimited US calling with no monthly fees * Bundled features, like caller-ID, call-waiting, and voicemail at no extra charge * Exceptional voice quality and reliability * The ability to hear messages from any ooma device, phone, or computer * Low-cost international rates starting at a penny per minute * Easy setup to get you up and dialing * Option to keep your current phone number or choose a new one anywhere in the US
