With cell phones being so completely immersed in our daily lives that many of us can hardly remember a time when we didn't use them, home phone lines have increasingly gone the way of the dodo. With monthly cellular bills that frequently top $100, having another expense for something that is deemed largely unnecessary just doesn't compute. Innovative communications company Teltub is attempting to bring back the home phone line by using Google Voice to give users home VoIP service for a mere $5 per month.
The service, which launched in January, requires a Google Voice number, an internet connection, and a VoIP adapter (no computer or phone line of any kind required). The adapter can be purchased separately and setup using gHome's tutorial, or you can pay $50 extra to have them provide it for you.
