As if just letting the wireline incumbents ruffle their plumes wasn’t enough to keep the US in the dark ages of telecomm innovation, why not scare the shit out of the wireless companies while you are at it. They are “the establishment” just like the copper-loving crowd, and their customer service is just as bad, IMHO. So all you have to do to ensure that us American folks don’t ever get any fancy new services is to release a disruptive service for use on wireless networks.
The Register may call it the end of VoIP for guys like Skype and Vonage. I just say it is another nail in the coffin for US consumers and businesses wanting desperately for something competitive.
