Becoming your own ISP

Post by Maybel » Sat Jan 15, 2011 11:30 am

Hello, I want to get rid of my broadband Internet bill, if this is possible. Is it?

I admit I am new to all of this and am not very knowledgeable. That's why I came here. I was hoping someone could tell me if there was a way to become your own ISP, in a compatible manner with OOma's Hub and Scout. Would a 3G hot spot (like I know what that is) from one of the cell providers work? Or is my best resolution to simply stay with my current Internet provider?

Any help you can give would be appreciated. TIA!

You have to have broadband internet for ooma to work. Hardwired is preferred over wireless.

I guess that settles it, then. I can now give up the idea.

Thank you lbmofo, Your input is appreciated.
