Re: Help I am confused
said by lugnut :And lots of people, like myself, have found MJ to be as reliable as the old Bell companies. Others, like yourself, have not.
Like I said, I've had to crawl down to the basement router and reset my MJ+ three times in the six months that I've had it after it locked up for no reason.
For 911 calls if my old man was having a heart attack never mind the quality of MJ+'s 911 service, that is still far from an acceptable failure rate for any sort of primary home phone service.
Lots of people have their own personal grudges against Bell for whatever reason, but for general phone service reliability and 911 response there simply isn't anything better out there.
As far as 911, if the VOIP system I was using, or my electricity, was out and I could not call 911 with my VOIP, I would pick up my cell phone and call them. Not sure about Canada, but here in the states, 911 response time to cell calls from home are just as reliable and quick as land-line calls. Heck, you don't even need an active cell phone since old cell phones will still call 911. I am way past wasting my money on a POTS service, but again, to each his own.
