While conventional wisdom may lean towards the local cable MSOs, it seems the early adopter type readers of ZDNet would favor another VoIP player. In my view this is excellent news for BroadVoice, SunRocket and Earthlink. All have proven models, great platforms and so far, demonstrated that they have the ability to make the grade. They also, from the reports I've heard, have none of the risks associated with the Verizon claims against Vonage by Verizon.
This type of voting result shows me that the market of user who already understand what Vonage has to offer will choose to favor other VoIP alternatives. This is clearly showing me that there is a growing belief and support for the next-gen voice providers versus the incumbent substitution Voice 1.5 offerings from the cable phone providers who in reality really have done nothing but offer to change the wire and the bill for customers. For those real VoIP providers the Vonage mess can be music to their ears.
P.S. I didn't buy into the VoIP.inc hype out effort..which is why I didn't blog it...Seems someone else is sharing that opinion.
