Vonage works very well for me. (I could refer you and we would both get credit.) 911 is not the regular 911 service. First, you are connected to a local emergency service. Service during a power outage is limited to the life of your UPS, if you have one. Otherwise, the service is great. Unlimited long distance for about $28 total per month. And there are a lot of standard features like voice mail and Caller-ID.

A fax machine is not supposed to work unless you pay extra, but we have a modem type device connected and it seems to get through. (I need to do a test with a regular modem.)

With my Internet connection, heavy uploading can affect call quality. Downloads do not have any affect. I would recommend it for anyone to try.
