Far more secure if they are coming from POTS as far as local snooping since the analog from the CO to the premises can easily be tapped into. Any VOIP is much more secure than POTS locally. Ooma to Ooma avoids the entire PSTN and is as secure as it gets for a consumer phone experience.

Coming to Ooma from a POTS landline will never be less secure.
I think this is what most prospective Ooma customers would want to know. Thanks.
