Consumer Reports (June 2012) rated Ooma #1 over all other VOIP, Landline & Fiber Optic phone companies.
Looks like Ooma tax/fee recently increase to as high as $8.52+ a month in some area and look like keep increasing.
It is as high as $100+ a year now and raising. Note, Ooma still hasn't setup local tax for all cities yet. As mentioned in Ooma own forum, they are slowly rolling out the local tax/fee in their system. There are MANY cities in USA and it takes time to set it up.
Some of the more expensive zipcode for taxes and fee are... Note, Ooma hasn't setup local tax for all cities yet (think about how many cities in US). With time, many zipcode price will increase to this level.....

They are becoming landline now in term of fee/taxes increase. Pretty much can increase anytime without warning.
Q. Aren't those fees mostly federal/state fees/taxes that would be raising any landline by the same amount too?
A. They include fee to maintain the server and other expenses to collect and do accounting/calculation for the tax/fee. I assume including expenses for electricity, CSR to answer phone call related to tax/fee, etc.
People in Ooma forum indicate once the tax/fee is fully implemented, it should closely match your postpaid cellphone/local landline bill in term of fee/taxes. So check your cellphone/landline bill to see eventually how much fee/taxes you will need to pay if your area hasn't implement all the state/county/city fee/taxes yet.
