A bit late, but they say it works well for newer phones.

Some older phones (3+ years) don't work at all, and some phones
need to be placed right next to the device to pick it up but can
then be used around the office.

The quality seems fine on an 8Mbit ADSL line shared with about a
dozen sensible users.
