Passing Through

The single biggest thing this announcement does is answer the question that MANY SBC-DSL customers have had recently.

And that is..."should we go with one of the current VOIP players or wait and see if SBC is going to address this market with DSL-VOIP bundle pricing."

With stroke of pen SBC just put a cap on a whole buncha VOIP subscriptions that might have come as a result of new broadband connections and/or VOIP "second phone line gifts" associated with this holiday buying season.

SBC customers will now wait...unless the competition quickly offers some really good "join us now before SBC starts" deals.

SBC just gave credence to VOIP for their customer base where doubt might otherwise have existed in the average customer's mind.

The VOIP fearful will stick with their principle service provider for hand holding...featureless or not.

The icing on the cake is going to be the Freedomlink extension of SBC VOIP functionality. But I don't see that eating away too much of SBC's Cell biz until Wi-Fi is everywhere. Once you get use to calling from anywhere...it's hard to go back.


well, you KNOW my BET is Level3 for one of their Bullet Producers OUT OF AREA of SBC to terminate the calls using Voip WMD's...........VOIP WEAPONS of MASS DIALING about to see another COLOR as the Color of Money is GREEN and all systems are ""GO"" for Comcast vs SBC in the race of the big 800# Gorillas about to begin!
