Inside ooma’s new phone service with CEO Andrew Frame
The tech media and blogs buzzed recently over the launch of ooma, a Palo Alto start-up that’s promising free long distance calls for life. CEO Andrew Frame explains how ooma works (you need to buy a $400 box, first). And he answers questions about the cost of the box (they could have charged more, he says), the state of the Internet calling industry, ooma’s security and whether now is the right time to be launching a landline phone service. Frame also takes us on a tour of the start-up’s Palo Alto offices, where engineers work on the company’s devices.
