does anyone use an unlimited INTERNET LD plan? I need to be able to dial in to do my transcription and work via the internet at the same time. I got a sales ad today from Vonage and saw an internet ad from them today as well.

Does anyone have any info on them??

That is our carrier. What info do you need. You can find most of it online.

It really depends on where you live and your internet company. I use Vonage, and I have never had a problem with it. The sound is the same quality as a normal land line, and it never disconnects calls or anything like that--it's the same as a normal phone. However, we live in a very urban area (JUST outside of DC), so we have a very strong cable internet connection. If you live somewhere where you have a weak signal or you have frequent internet outages, it's probably not a good idea. I have a coworker who lives further away from the city and said their Vonage sucked--always sounded like static and unclear, but I have never had this problem.

You may also want to check with your cable/internet provider--a lot of companies are now offering cable phone service (around here, anyway--don't know how widespread it is yet).
