Wanted VOIP Service that has 808 Areacode

I picked up a Vonage VOIP package the other day. I got it home to set it up and about 20 minutes into the setup process I find out Vonage does not have local numbers here in Hawaii. I was a bit pissed. I had purchased their signup kit from Compusa and when I returned it the customer service rep told me that they were supposed to disclaim that at the check-out counter.

My bet is they had to many people not buy the package on the spot and Compusa wanted to dump the 100 or so kits I saw on the showroom floor. If you know of a VOIP company that offers 808 areacodes i’m all ears.

I think the referenced ZDNet article should have included Hawaii. [ZDNet]
