As a Ooma user I must pay $3.47 a month in regulatory taxes and fees. How do other VOIP providers (Magic Jack) get away with zero taxes?

With Vonage, the tax is $7.53 per month for my area. MagicJack is $20 a year with all them annoying ads on the computer.

MJ claims that it is a multi-media experience, not a phone company. How long they can continue to get away with that is up to the FCC and the individual state regulators. Vonage had no taxes when I started using it 7 years ago. The taxes were there when I dumped it for Ooma.
