  1. isn’t this skype business model pure hype?in some cases rumor of skype signing 500k per day as well. call yahoo and few others,they will tell you why they went with XTEN’s sip open standard.

  2. “worldwide using a custom Skype version of the award-winning Boingo Software” that’s from the press release. you pay $8 a month for using Skype only. You pay for SkypeOut. Its not a big deal … that’s what I am trying to say.

  3. Is it in SBC and T-Mobile’s best interest to offer a special softphone for their hot spots, considering they make far more money off of cellular than they do off of WiFi? It seems it is more in there interest to offer UMA phones that offer discounted rates on their hot spots. This type of bundling provides churn benefits that go well beyond the pure ARPU equation you get with the softphone.

  4. Personally, I see at as a great deal for people who just need phone service / Skype.

    Obviously, this is directed at Skype users who are not Boingo customers.

  6. Here in the Philippines known us Democratic country, but in terms of VoIP I think some company are trying to object/avoid VoIP while they are doing with ISR and also not paying such amount us tax to the Phil. goverment.
    If the VoIP will introduce without the monopoly i think all filipino living abroad will earned and save more boxes.
