The Daily Camera has an astonishingly good, detailed and comprehensive report on the state of VoIP, and who are the real players in the business. “Will Stofega, a senior analyst on VoIP services for IDC, another research firm, says the companies that provide hosting VoIP services, such as Qwest, SBC or those that resell Level 3’s network, will log $222 million in sales next year and $880 million in 2006. By 2008, IDC sees that market exploding to $7 billion,” adds the report. There is tiny mention of yours truly in the story as well. “Internet gods have finally smiled on (Level 3),” says Om Malik, a senior writer for Business 2.0 magazine who says he’s been a skeptic of the company in the past. “This has even surpassed my expectations, how quickly they have become such a dominant force in the Voice over Internet business.” Our friend Andy is getting a big shout out in the story as well. Anyway I wish most stories were this detailed and complete.
