- Using Skype to make conference calls, well all you need is a Jazz Hipster!
- Citron wants A Broadband Bill of Rights.
- Skype Journal: Skype today represents 1% of broadband usage at any point in time, and this figure is growing rapidly?
- SkypeIn has now added SkypeIn numbers for Sweden, Norway and Denmark! The US now has about 95 Area Codes available.
- Tom Evslin has been banished to a VoIP life full of jitter.
- Even Alias can’t save videophones. Packet 8 video phones are now down to $99 while their VoIP monthly service is going for $20 a month.
- Buy my service, will give you cash. Its 1999 as VoicePulse offers cash to gain subscribers.
- Comcast outage plagues VoIP carriers.
- BroadbandReports: Like the wireless companies and landline incumbents before them, the VoIP industry has slowly succumbed to adding ‘regulatory recovery fees’ to their bills. These aren’t official government mandated fees, they’re simply rate hikes disguised as fees so you’ll blame Uncle Sam instead of the company responsible.

1. VoicePulse is giving cash only to one who is subscribing to a competitive VoIP provider and not somebody who is switching from PSTN. So the intramural sport has started.
2. Given that one can video chat in MSN, one does not have to spend that $100 and be conscripted for 2 years. Does this explain Packet8’s action?
excellent point on MSN/Packet 8. I think the iChat in Tiger is going be an another nail in the coffin of stand alone video phones.
interesting, stuff on VoicePulse as well. I think giving cash is not a good idea. now you will see the other do precisely the same thing.
