Google VOIP box update

Google voice update.

We've been using the new Google VOIP device for a little over a month now and happy to report the quality is the same as most land line phones. There was once when the connection was bad but it may have been due to the cell phone I was talking to. Once I hung up and re-connected the problem went away.

It's very easy to hook up. An ethernet cable plugs into the back and then into the internet router. Plug the phone cable from the box to any phone and it is ready to go.

Hi Anna and Mark,

I am glad to hear your internet telephone is working 'well'. Being somewhat on the inside, it is amazing how many different things telephone companies have done to harass products like this over the years, all the while trying to play the I didn't do it game. Given no more 'net neutrality' I wonder whether cleverer stuff will begin to happen in the future? My cell phone has some curious transmission problems that I would guess are being done on purpose. But since you are not being served by a 'big' ISP like I am, you may just get a quality internet connection. What a concept :).
