In what is a poential Check-Mate move over Skype and one with much deeper implications, Vonage has made a move in the UK to introduce WiFi based phone services with the Cloud.
If they can successfully make this happen in the USA via the non Google, Non Earthlink WiFi cloud like communities in Cerritos, Las Vegas, Encinitas in CA, Tempe, Chandler and Scottsdale in AZ and elsewhere this could be a very big step forward for the company that is in registration with the SEC here in the USA.
What makes this different from Skype offering is simple. SIP. That also makes inter-connection and roaming very easy to execute on and then opens the door even more to the world of FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) so companies in that space like BridgePort Networks become more and more important every day.
