Replace my UFB Router

Hi,

 

I am going to replace my Vodafone Home Hub / WiFi router with a new Cisco device.  I have UFB installed and I have a Home Phone that runs from the VOIP port on my Router.  My new Router does not have a VOIP / Phone port.  What are my options, can the phone be run from the ONT or should I just cancel the home phone?  I know Spark land lines run from the ONT POTS port but not sure about Vodafone.

 

Look forward to your response.

 

Thanks

 

Mike

Hi Mike,

 

It's not possible to run your home phone through the ONT POTS port with us. 

 

If you don't have a particular need for it, then you may be better of cancelling the homephone to be honest. 

 

You could look at another VOIP service or we also offer a service called Local Number on Mobile, where all calls are diverted straight to your mobile if you are needing a landline number for people to call you on.

Perfect, thanks for letting me know.  I thought that would be the answer but wanted to double check.

 

I will cancel my Landline, which will save money and stop those sales calls we all love so much.

I've just double checked, the only other thing you could do, is plug the HG659 into one of the LAN ports on your Cisco modem, and just disable the wifi on the HG659. Obviously that means running a modem just for the phone to work though.
