5 thoughts on “GloPhone losing its Glow?”

  1. I would say that this is not a good business because Glo Phone is getting out of it, the reality is the business has changed and it is becoming more of a peer to peer type of service like aim and customers are less likely to pay for this type of service. Google, Yahoo and Ebay realized that this would be a great add on tool to their communities and would help take their IM clients to whole new level.

  2. Rememebr their will always be marketers and the network providers. Companies like The Globe tried to be both. Their are companies which focus on the network/technology to make it work, and their are companies who build brands and services to run on those networks. VoIP Inc provides network and technology to companies, so the model is different. Companies like Vonage build on brand on services which run on those networks. Tough to be both in an industry which changes hourly. The shakeup will allow the companies best positioned to brand a service to partner with network providers, and that will be success models moving forward. I dont see the likes of Google, Microsfot, Yahoo deploying switches to interconnect to the PSTN thru the US and world, they will form partnerships with carriers/network providers that do. Let each do what they do best.
