Entrepreneur Mag on VoIP
Level 3 Adds Charter

Make Me Laugh...All The Way To The Bank

Over on Broadband Reports the discussion about AOL entering the VoIP world is nothing short of good comedy.

Maybe there's a reason God made AOL and has kept it alive.

AOL and VoIP makes total sense. Why? Audience. If 10 percent of the AOL customer base comes on board in the first year that are able to because they have the ability to, i.e. they have access to broadband, then they become the largest VoIP player in the game.

Second, imagine all those AOL IMer, Gamers, etc., all moving to broadband. This is great for the cable players and great for Level3.

It is not that different than AT&T doing what they did, with one exception. All the moving parts with AOL and only one big engine with AT&T. Having Level3 in the mix makes this a very interesting development, but given the intercine warfare with AOL and Time Warner, who knows what the end result will really be.

AOL likely will get spun back off, or sold off. Hmm..AT&T and AOL...now that would be a interesting combination...
