About to go to wireless broadband and looking at my phone options.

As I understand it, could go with a VOIP phone, or, utilize my existing phones by an ATA device?
Same sort of quality of sound, or is there a lag running under ATA?

Also - I currently have a Fritzboz 7340, - won't be using this sepcifically as no longer on ADSL.. does anyone know whether i could use this independently as an ATA device... some of the documentation around it seems to indicate that I could, but really not sure.

 - thanks

You're unlikely to notice a difference.

The only noticeable advantage of native VoIP device would any G722 HD voice calls you make. But unless you are making these within an organisation to our HD voice capable devices on the same provider network there is no quality advantage anyway.

Why not use the Fritz to terminate the wireless connection?

Set the WAN to ethernet and then you can use all the VoIP stuff in the Fritz. You won't notice any difference in quality. If you get a Cisco SPA112 though there are quite a lot more settings you can use to make it act just like an NZ phone line.
