OK, if I understand the ooma model, they need to have some number of us plugging into the POTS network so that they don't have to pay termination fees for the outbound calls.

So when I'm not using my ooma and someone wants to terminate a call in my area, am I carrying the heavy VOIP load on my network? In other words, am I going to be seeing significant degradation not only when I am using the ooma but also when y'all are using my ooma?

Just came to mind.....

Thanks.

I'm lazy so I'll just cut and paste my answer to a similar question you posted in another thread:

Actually, ooma has not done that for years. The idea was scrapped for a lot of reasons. ooma does not need your landline - in fact, the only calls that would ever go over a connected landline are calls that you yourself make. Other user's calls NEVER will use your line for termination. Many of us use the system without any connection to the wall port.
