Currently, I am of the assumption that I am receiving a g.711 codec with a higher bandwidth usage (with header overhead about 92Kbps persecon in each direction). Comcast is flaky! Can you change my service to g.729, g.723 or g.726 as a bandwidth saving option?

Yes! Vonage offers a bandwidth saving option as well...

QOS settings to control bandwidth ( as available on ooma) make calls sound better as opposed to compression algorithms

ooma uses the iLBC codec by default (not G.711) which consumes <30kbps during an active call. When you dial *99, we shift to G.711 instead to support FAX/modems, and you might hear a slight increase in call quality. For most users, however, the lower bandwidth requirements and error correction/redundancy built into iLBC will produce more consistent results.
