AT&T is currently testing a “bring your own access” consumer VoIP service similar to the Vonage model, said David Dorman, AT&T Chairman and CEO, speaking at this week’s Morgan Stanley Global Media & Communications Conference in Boston, according to Converge Digest.
bq. Dorman sees great potential in such an AT&T branded, consumer VoIP service because of the “many interesting voice features it could offer,” like “pick your own area code,” “phone number for life,” and the ability to reach the service from anywhere over the Internet. Internal testing of the hosted VoIP service is underway at AT&T. Dorman expects these trials will be expanded soon.
