Clearly the light has dawned on them that their original business model is unsustainable, and further that those still working under that model are a net loss to them. Not at all surprising and worth riding it out as long as they let you. Hopefully they'll start having a positive cash flow soon and can continue long term.
Though one of my "free" devices (device with the old zero cost service) is a Telo from the beta program. Assuming Ooma eventually does away with Hubs, I'll still have a free account on a Telo. Though I'd move my primary numbers to Google Voice and let Google handle what are currently premier features on Ooma.
