We use NextAlarm (nextalarm.com) with Vonage VOIP (with the alarm system plugged into the VOIP router) - and it works without a problem.

They also offer an Alarm Broadband Network (ABN) solution .. that uses a customized adapter to send alarm signals to their central station over the internet (but we don't use it).

$12/mo for monitoring w/ no contract, can't beat it. Also love the online account access, the fact the alarm system is fully wireless (minus plugging the console into the phone line) -- and you can get added parts at minimal cost on eBay .. plus the text messages you can enable them to send when someone accidentally sets off the alarm
