Re: Speakeasy VOIP? I just got off the phone with SE inquiring about the Beta program for VOip.
As a previous poster noted, the Beta test is for anyone that wants to request it. The trial lasts for 2 months at which time you can either keep it or have it disconnected.
SE has the service priced at $30/month. I'm paying $30 month for MCI "The Neighborhood" right now. Free long distance and more importantly, I get frequent flyer miles for every dollar I spend.
I'd love to get completely off of Bell and go VOip but SE needs to make it worth it. I'm not thrilled with the idea of paying the exact same for a service that has the potential for NOT being as reliable as what I currently have. Not to mention the hassle of changing numbers...
I'm sure they will allow you to port your number. Atleast I would hope so if they want to do well with voip.
