ooma's "Distributed Termination" == a little scary and creepy...
So, they tout their service as free...but when you keep your land-line, you're giving them the right to make outgoing calls from your line.

Then there's the scary part--they claim that this is as secure as any land-line service and that they [somehow] "thwart" efforts by customer at the termination point from listening in on your calls.

It's funny, when someone set this up for international "peer-to-peer" faxing, many, many moons ago, I thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread. This was in the heady days of dial-up networking, when even having a "fax modem" was pretty cool tech.

Now...just...yikes.
