I’m preparing for my telecom talk this week — looking at the future of the industry. One of the most significant trends is the move to VoIP (voice over IP). Lots going on — and one of the most fascinating things is Vonage, a company that provides full telephone service through your DSL or cable-modem connection. They just passed the 50,000 customer milestone. I just got word this AM that they are going to set me up for a trial of their service.
