Ooma does not count as offering VoIP service.  Since you are not billing the customer (i.e. collecting revenue) or collecting fees (specifically FUSF) you do not file a 499 nor a 477 for services provided through Ooma.

Atheral White-Label VoIP on the other hand does count, as you are providing a white-label (vs. a resale) service and billing your customers.  Some information about our offering can be found here: https://atheral.co/wlvoip

Happy to discuss offlist with anyone... you can book a meeting with me here: https://calendly.com/atheralsales/prtdemo

  We attended the Government Subsidized Overbuilding webinar but didn't hear anything about a phone service seminar.

For anyone else that is trying to keep up:

NANP is this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_Numbering_Plan

N11 is this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N11_code

I think that Ooma was offering this a year or two ago at WISPA in Memphis.  We'll check on it.

  Please let us know if there are others that may be better.  We're not exactly in the phone business and just recommend to our customers to use a smartphone with WiFi calling.  But it looks like we're going to have to offer phone service not to get further overbuilt on!

Thank you,

    As long as it is phone service that reaches NANP numbers including
    X11 numbers, it counts as long as it is offered by YOUR company.
    Can be white label.

    Yes, has to be reflected on 477.

    We did a webinar last week on this topic, hope to post for members

    Is there some information about what is considered phone service?

    Can we just offer something like Ooma?  Does this phone service
    need to be reflected in FCC 477?

    Is there a place to go for further information?

        There are two upcoming items on the FCC’s August 1st meeting
        on items that will effect all WISP’s.    Please review the
        documents below.

        Short summary:

        477 Order - will revamp the 477 data collection process and
        information.   Personally this is a good thing.

        RDOF - This is the next $20,400,000,000 (20.4 Billion Dollars)
        that will be spend to overbuild your network if you are not
        currently providing 25/3 service & phone.

        WISPA has time to meet with the commissioners and discuss up
        to the 25th.   A lot of effort has already gone into making
        sure that both of these are fair and open to all providers,
        not just the Telco’s.   There is no way to stop the feds from
        spending this money - it’s coming regardless of what we do.  
        Both political parties, the administration, and the FCC all
        want to spend money on rural broadband.

        */YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR PART/* to either position yourself to
        receive this funding, or prevent your competitors from getting
        it and overbuilding you.

            Just released, below are links to draft items of interest
            for the FCC’s August 1 open meeting.  We have the
            opportunity to meet with the Commissioners until the
            afternoon of July 25.  Would appreciate the Committee’s
            input on these soon. Just released, and I have not had a
            chance to review these yet.
