Why I Decided To Pull My Recommendation Of The netTALK Duo WiFi

Frequent readers of this blog will know that I reviewed the netTALK Duo WiFi and gave it a very glowing recommendation. The reason for that recommendation was that it performed very well when I tested it.

This confidence changed in the last 36 hours. netTALK users have lost access to their phone numbers and can’t receive phone calls because a third party company named Iristel actually controls those numbers and won’t release them until netTALK pays them. The CRTC is apparently involved which was hopeful. Until I found that netTALK seems to have some serious red flags in some SEC documents that the company has filed which makes its survival an open question.

As a result, I have decided to flag this product as being “not recommended.” This is only the second time in the history of this blog that I have done this, but given the events to date, I feel that I am left with little choice. Thousands of people come to this blog every day to see my views on technology and read my reviews of everything from smartphones to cars. I feel that if something comes to light that affects my recommendation, I must bring that to light and share it with you. That is the honorable thing to do because by not doing so, my reviews have no value or integrity.

I hope you understand the reasons behind my decision. If you have any questions, please reach out to me via a comment below or via e-mail.

Thank you for reading.
