- Please keep in mind dialup Internet @ maximum speed runs at 56 Kbps, so yes you will be just fine with your AT&T Net Speed. I use WISP (wireless internet service provider) and it works great @ 1.5 Mbps up and down with ping of 9 ms. As for Excede (WILDBLUE) satellite Internet it will not work with any VoIP except one Excede (WILDBLUE) offers that they **claim will work only with their system. Furthermore, no satellite Internet service will work with any VOIP; due to amount of time (lag/ping) it takes from the dish on your roof to send/receive data to the satellite orbiting approximately 25,000 miles above the Earth. Normally satellite Internet has a lag/ping time of 900-1300 ms whereas cable/dsl has approximately 50 ms lag time. In addition, ALL satellite ISPs either have a daily download limit or monthly download limit . It is called their Fair Access Policy (FAP) and should you "excede" download limit your speeds are reduced to slower than dialup for approx. 48 hours. In addition satellite Internet is a shared network, so during peak hour usage you so called high speed satellite Net slows to a crawl usually not much faster than dialup. There are currently 100s of online complaints against Excede (WILDBLUE.) As a former satellite Internet customer/victim I recommend if possible to avoid satellite Internet! I reside in a rural area and thankfully WISP is available. Wireless Internet Service Providers have towers in many rural areas now. The wireless signal is sent via radio frequency to an antenna mounted on your roof. It has a lower ping/lag time than cable Internet or DSL and there is *no download limit at all!by nogeekneeded12/3/2015Was this answer helpful? (17) (3)Was this answer helpful?
- To use BasicTalk service you need a high-speed Internet connection with a minimum speed of 30kbps, such as cable or DSL, from an Internet Service Provider (ISP). BasicTalk does not supply Internet service. You must arrange for Internet service from an Internet Service Provider (ISP) in your area. Please note, BasicTalk does not recommend or support using satellite or wireless Internet technology.by BasicTalkPhone1/11/2016Was this answer helpful? (21) (5)Was this answer helpful?

- Yes 5 mbps is plenty fast enough I have a 1 mbps connection to the internet and it works flawlessly, please remember that a fast dial-up connection was 54 kbps. In regards to satellite as long as connection is active I believe it should work but you would have to check with the provider.by Guido321/14/2015Was this answer helpful?

- 5 MB/S actually works out to 500 KB/S (actual speed) downstream, and 77 KB/S (actual speed) upstream, so yes, you have plenty of speed. I have the same with AT&T.by Raptozilla8/21/2015Was this answer helpful? (7) (4)Was this answer helpful?
- Pay no attention to this requirement. I have the same ATT service you have - and no problems with this unit.by Flack524/4/2015Was this answer helpful? (10) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes and No. If you need to keep your current number, go to the Basic Talk web site. They have an app that checks if your current number is portable. In my case it was not. I switched to Basic Talk anyway and got a new number. Was a bit of a hassle to inform everyone I cared about of the number change.by Ibrew21/20/2016Was this answer helpful?

- Yes. A typical number transfer takes 7 to 10 business days to complete starting from the time you complete and submit the Number Transfer Authorization (NTA). If there are any issues, BasicTalk will email you using the contact information you have on file. You can check the status of your number transfer by signing in to your Online Account and clicking on "Existing Phone Number Transfer Status".by ForceFieldOfLove12/14/2015Was this answer helpful?

- Yes, you can port your number over. In order to do this, the number has to be active, so wait till it completes before disconnecting service. Remember, if there is a power outage, the device will not work.by ForceFieldOfLove12/14/2015Was this answer helpful? (18) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes, you can keep your current number as long as it is not disconnected for any reason.by BarbAlbr12/14/2015Was this answer helpful? (19) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I am currently using phone jacks and extensions in other rooms. You can use it on up to 1,000 feet of installed home phone wiring. However, if you have DSL internet service, you still want to use the filters for each phone. You plug a phone cord from the Basic Talk device into one of your home phone jacks, and the signal should route through all of your home phone lines into the other jacks. Important Note: If you have a dedicated DSL internet line coming from the phone company box on the outside of your home and into your house, when you hook your basic talk device into a phone jack in your home, remove all of the filters for the phones, and be sure to DISCONNENT the regular phone line going into your home if it's connected to the outside phone company box. This is simple to do. Open the box and look to see if the modular plug is plugged in. If it is, then disconnect it. This is usually located to the left of where your phone line is connected. Each dedicated phone line has its own modular jack and plug. I used to have two phone lines in my home, but no more. I made use of the secondary line for my DSL connection. My Basic Talk is routed through my home phone wiring, but remember, that line is connected at the phone company box on the outside of my home. This way, there is absolutely NO interference to the DSL service, and I do NOT have to use the DSL filters for each phone. Works great and the phone service is CRYSTAL CLEAR. Also, by disconnecting your regular phone line at the phone company box on the outside of your home, it prevents the Basic Talk phone line from picking up any interference in the phone line going to the phone company's switching station, as well as keeping your Basic Talk phone signal on a line that is 1,000 feet or less. Hope this helps and can be understood.by HappyInMesa10/9/2015Was this answer helpful? (11) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- While you can only use one phone line with your BasicTalk account, you can use multiple phones with the service, although not more than 5.

- Yes, you just plug this device into your household wiring (f you want to do it that way), then every phone in your house will become active.by WWJP10/13/2015Was this answer helpful? (14) (0)Was this answer helpful?
