Re: VOIP suggestions

CDV has fewer points of failure with Vonage and Ooma, there are many more points of failure such as more pieces of CPE and commercial Internet back haul. CDV only needs the link between the headend and the modem.

When the last mile is the least reliable part of it all, they are, in practicality, they have the same miserably unreliable track record. Copper landlines are the only reliable things during a storm. Or cell phones for most people. For us, however, we're using a Microcell, and during the summer, the macrocell signal is barely good enough to make a phone call or use really slow data, so when Comcast goes down, those are pretty crippled too.
