Those speed tests are for VOIP testing

In addition to putting *99, in the dial string, try setting both QOS numbers in the hub setup to 0. That is the only way that I was able to get a reliable dial up modem connection to work through the ooma hub.

Confused as usual.

Because someone misinterpreted his original message, and suggested he run a speedtest to determine if "ooma would work over dial-up", so to speak.

And he did one, presumably to test how reliable/usable it would be.
You are right. I thought he wanted to run Ooma over a landline.
