I already have an ooma core system at a summer house and it works great. Still have Vonage at my main home and am paying about $60/month for one number, one virtual number, and one fax line. A couple of years ago I paid about $40 for this. I am now paying about 1/3 of my total toward fees and taxes! (Many of there fees are per number) Just for fun, I've listed the fee and taxes portion of my current monthly Vonage bill below:

Regulatory and Compliance Fee $4.47
Emergency 911 Service Fee $2.98
Sales Tax $4.71
Federal Program Fee $4.13
State Excise Tax $1.38
Local Franchise Tax $1.25
County MCTD Surcharge Sec. 186 $0.32
State Franchise Surcharge
Sec. 184-Access $0.20
Local Transit Tax $0.20
County MCTD Surcharge Sec. 184 $0.07

My guess is that if I replace my Vonage with another ooma, this account account won't be considered an 'existing customer'. No biggie. So my questions are as follows: 1) Does ooma premier include the 'regulatory fee' or is that still separate? 2) Is the regulatory fee per account or per number?

Thanks,
Chip

Here is the explanation posted on the blog page: http://www.ooma.com/blog/2009/10/02/how-oomas-terms-conditions-affect-current-new-ooma-customers/

Here are the current T&C: http://www.ooma.com/legal/terms-and-conditions

The fee for years two and beyond are by account, not number, AFAIK, and are separate from the cost of Premier.
