It's actually a monthly fee for "taxes", which is around $4 a month. We have Ooma and it works fine. I'm using an Ooma Hub, which is the old model. I used to have a Telo, but the sucker broke one month after the 1 year warranty ended, so basically, I didn't save any money for phone service, that year, because I bought it at Fry's for $200 and then replaced it for with a refurb Hub (from Fry's) for $129. $99 is a steal, as long as it doesn't break right after the warranty ends, and even then at only $99, you'll probably have saved money over the telephone companies.
Now, can anybody tell me how come Ooma claims they only charge for taxes and it's something they can't get around, yet these required "bare minimum" taxes still end up being twice the cost of the $19.95 year fee for Magic Jack? If these fees were strictly governmental, how does Magic Jack get away with charging less than half?
