"The Napster of Telecom"


That's what one telecom analyst calls Vonage in a New York Post piece on the tiny company. Vonage sells voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) phone service. Another analyst notes that since VoIP is flat-rate while the old Bell system has per minute charges, it will "inherently kill the Bells."

Which is exactly why regulators and politicians will shoot to kill VoIP and Vonage in order to save their twisted, symbiotic relationship with the Bell oligopoly.
