I've heard and read mixed reviews about MagicJack (MJ).
How is it for reliability, quality, etc. ?
From what I've read a good internet connection is needed for "quality" service with MagicJack.
What does that really mean ???
Is it the internet connection speed, or what other factors do i need to consider ?
I've been having ISP problems for the last month or so.
I have att Uverse "triple play" - Internet (15 Mbps down), Phone, and Television.
Lately Uverse has been going out for hours or days at a time ...
Yup, I've called and reported my problem ...
They have sent techs to my house, drilled holes, rewired, new modem, nothing so far fixes my problem.
I "think" i need a landline phone, and Uverse is not reliable for me now.
I'm rethinking my need for landline/cell phone ...
Should i get MagicJack and an "emergency" cell phone ???
I'm 65 years old and most people I help are senior, 60-90+ years old.
They are not technical and often poor vision/hearing, etc.
Helping friends and family using Teamviewer and a speaker phone is important to me.
I can switch to Time Warner Cable, or the new guy in my neighborhood (North State Communications).
North State has gigabit internet, but i don't know anyone that has experience with them.
They would have to lay cable from the street to my house, drill holes and do whatever to "wire my house".
I really don't want more holes and wires, etc.
My current Uverse internet service works or it doesn't.
When it works, it works fine, when it doesn't work, nothing works ...
Is 15 Mbps down (Uverse) good enough for MJ, or is a slower TWC good enough, or is North State gigabit network a good bet ???
I'm not a gambler, but i do luv watching the old Maverick westerns
