Tried it (Talk Broadband) and kicked it back out.
When calling a Telus number in the area we could hear them but they couldn't hear us...
Called with it to Belgium, no problem..
I also ran a couple servers (www/mail) on the same shaw (small-biz) connection, as soon as somebody downloaded a wack of pic the phone connection became erratic...
Line quality is definitely an issue.
Fax is optional (if available at all)
Modem can't be used (to send fax from pc)
