Is Ooma a Good Alternative to a Landline?

Episode 1812 (2:22:45)

Joe from Riverside, CA
Ooma VoIP

Joe bought the Ooma VOIP telephone system, and he pays about $6 a month with 911 service. Leo says that Ooma isn't a landline though, and as such, if the internet goes down, so does your phone system. The nice thing about landlines is that you still have phone service for emergencies if the power goes out. But the phone companies don't want to support it anymore.
