Fax over VoIP - NOT Good !!!
My Bell VoIP was apparently NOT availble for fax, Bell said. So for my first 3 months in Ottawa I had faxes sent to my apartment's Bell landline.
Then someone at Bell tried to send faxes to me & they worked. The excellent Canon all-in-one MultiPass phone-in technicians said their units were not good with faxes.
So I bought a new Brother 240C (also one for my Winnipeg office but that's on an MTS landline), hoping that newer technology would be better. No difference, it seems. There are still occasional blanks or No Signals.
By now my clients & friends know I use one number for fax & phone. So they & I'll suffer along, not too bad since faxing is less used nowadays.
But I'd recommend a separate landline for faxes, or maybe Primus or Vonage's VoIP inclusive fax number, they said VoIP-configured for faxes. Denzil
