Phone Power: Cheap, Mediocre
I have used VOIP phones for years. I used Sunpower until they went TU. Then I got PhonePower. I was using Quest phoneservice and dialup internet. I switched to cable broadband and VOIP and saved cash -- better all the way around. However, I've not found VOIP without it's problems.
It does require a 2 year pre-payment, which I lost part of to Sunpower's demise. The phone quality isn't stellar by any stretch, but still serves as a phone though. I'm uncertain to the 911 functions as we've never had to call -- knock on wood. I wouldn't totally rely on it thoughy.
\When I switched to Phonepower they wouldn't change my caller ID name to my name, because they said I didn't have proof that I owned it, though it was our number for 2 years with Sunpower. So when I call people they look at the caller ID and it says Mohamid Khan -- my real name is more like Dan T. Oh well, it got to be a joke after awhile.
SO, if you like to get cheap, mediocre and somewhat undependable phone service under the wrong name -- Phonepower is the place for you. HOWEVER, if you want to shoot more for something cheap, yet dependable -- keep on looking. And post it when you find it and I'll go there two.
