Ooma VoIP-In-A-Box Service Coming to Canada, Eh!

For better or for worse, I don’t have a conventional landline telephone anymore. I rely mostly on my cell phone, but I do have a secondary VoIP line in the house just in case. Pushing the VoIP agenda is Ooma, which has now announced that it will be offering its services to Canucks across the country.

You may already know Ooma from the VoIP services it has been offering in the United States for a number of years now, but now they’re expanding to Canada. The VoIP-in-a-box can be ordered as of today for $229 and that provides virtually unlimited calling to anyone in Canada. I say virtually, because any broadband overages you incur from your ISP are on you. That said, VoIP typically consumes very little data and won’t be nearly as much of a concern as, say, your Netflix subscription.

For an extra $9.99 a month, you can upgrade to the Premier service for call screening, three-way conferencing, ringtone options, and so on, but the basic telephony is “included” in the $229 purchase price. Ooma US Prime customers can now call Canada for free too.
