Ooma money savings - do you spend it on something else?

Post by cjones78 » Wed Oct 21, 2009 5:08 pm

I am just curious what you all spend the money that would otherwise go to a monthly phone bill on, if anything? Personally, I will be saving $32.90 a month + the $3 a month telephone adapter rental fee from Comcast (even though I own a cable modem).

Switching to Ooma allows me to break out of the Comcast Triple Play bundle, and I plan on using the money I'll be saving to bump my Internet speed from 16Mbps to 50Mbps (the reason I bought my own DOCSIS 3.0 Motorola cable modem).

What a fun question !!!

My phone bills used to be about $50.00 per month.

Now, I spend that on 'whatever'. Sometimes it goes toward a surprise repair bill and sometimes it is a treat for 'me' personally or technically, other times it is my kids or grandchildren that benefit I know I am loving it and I love to tell others all about Ooma.

I lucked out with high speed internet. After my U-Verse was installed, I had problems with the DVR. As a result, they up you to high speed rather than send a tech out. Later, the DVR failed completely and a tech had to come and replace it. I learned then that once they up your speed, they do not reduce it again. :D

unspeakable acts - Let's see... does that mean for anything non-voice related - no phone related purchases? :cool:

I did a quick calculation - if I put the amount I used to spend on phone bills in the bank for 20 years at only 4% return, I end up with over $18,000!
