Want to get rid of FIOS. Think current speed 25/25 but believe that this not needed with Ooma. Any suggestions as to replacements would be appreciated. Would Netzero work with Ooma? Any others?

If you are considering Netzero DSL service, that should work with Ooma.
If you are thinking Netzero modem service you have a catch 22. Ooma requires an existing broadband internet service to work.

I'd suggest Cable Internet; non "lite" version.

Ibmofo,

Comcast offers 12 Mbps downoad and 2 upload for $19.00 mo for 6 months; and 16 Mbps down and 2 up for $10.00 mo more. Will either work, or does Ooma require the 16 Mbps?

Either will work.

Ooma only needs 256Kbps upload (assumed that your download is a lot faster) officially.

Therefore, any one you mentioned would work; however, some folks have issues with high jitter (not a good thing for VoIP quality) due to how ISPs cap their speeds for lower tier offerings. I doubt that you'd have issues of this sort unless you go for 1.5Mbps download 256Kbps upload barebones cable internet.
