The ONLY problem that I ever had with Vonage was when I tried using it
at my parents house, who happen to have a wireless ISP in Utah County.
Since there is a lot or wireless traffic and and due to the nature of
wireless, I had problems with things breaking up on me. Everywhere
else has been great!!

Comcast will not give you a static IP unless you upgrade to their
Business Cable Internet (which is a pretty big jump from their
residential service price).
