gHome by TELTUB Marries Your Google Voice Number with Your Home Phone


teltub ghome demo

Wow, for just $5/mo TELTUB has a new VoIP service called gHome that can take your Google Voice phone number and make it so you can make and receive unlimited phone calls across the U.S. and Canada, all without a PC, using a standard home phone. The magic happens through TELTUB’s servers and the VoIP adapter — that either you or they can supply for $50 — that attaches your home phone to a broadband-connected router. The only caveat is that it does not support 911 calling like a traditional phone line and the “unlimited” calling is — I believe — subject to Google Voice’s terms. Word is Google Voice plans to charge users for minutes starting in 2012, though details have been murky thus far. Aside: I couldn’t find any info if gHome supports Caller ID on capable handsets. However, it looks like one can interact with TELTUB’s online interface while on a call to attach notes and share media with callers.

    Hi. Disclaimer: I am a developer/contributer of this product. Just an FYI, TELTUB’s gHome supports CallerID on the capable handsets. Moreover, by popular demand, we are planning to offer 911 support for the service in near future (911 will not go through Google Voice as Google Voice does not support it. It will be an enhancement service). Stay tuned.

    Thanks for the update. Feel free to chime back in when new features are added.

    So am I right about the free “unlimited” minutes being tied to Google Voice’s terms? In others words, if Google Voice starts charging for outgoing calls in 2012, the unlimited calling will longer be free, right?

    Take a look at the Obi110 from Obihai…$50 and no monthly fee for the same (more actually) features.

    Right on. Thanks for the tip: http://obihai.com/googlevoice.html — will research it. The page also confirms that free unlimited calling is up to Google’s discretion.

    One of this is on the way for testing.
    In the meantime, I am using Teltub’s service.  It was flawless once the setup process is done.  Good services overall.
