NetTalk is a failed experiment

Filed under: Information,Recommendations

I wrote a while back about trying the NetTalk device for my home phone. At first I thought it was working well and wrote a good review, but more and more people that I spoke to were telling me that they had a hard time hearing me. I discovered WiFi didn’t work well in either direction, so I plugged it into my router. Then incoming calls seemed to work better. Later I found out with outgoing calls the other person could had to struggle to understand what I was saying.

Things seem to have gotten worse and outgoing calls are pretty much unusable. At this point I’m not sure if I’m going to try another VOIP box. I was very happy with T-Mobile’s @Home service, but I may just dump the home phone altogether and send my number to Google Voice.

Either way, forget what I said earlier and stay away from from NetTalk.
