Some questions about Digital Voice.

Frequent Visitor

Some questions about Digital Voice.

I will be moving into my first apartment in the month of May.

I am thinking about going with the triple play, all 3 services for 99 dollars a month per year.

I already know that Digital Voice will not effect my upload and download speeds for my internet which is wonderful.

However, how is it set up? Will I get a modem for digital voice and for my internet? Or will it be shared over one modem?

Also, is it like Vonage, where the caller id shows on a box, like their v-portal? Or will it show on all phones in the house that have a caller id screen?

Re: Some questions about Digital Voice.

You get a device called an eMTA, which is essentially a combined cable modem and VOIP gateway. It has an Ethernet port for connecting your PC, and a phone jack for connecting to your apartment's phone wiring (or you could just plug a phone directly into it).

Caller-ID shows up on your phone's caller-id screen.
