Then word came down that Verizon was not going to stop offering voice over copper lines after all.
Next we heard speculation that eBay was going to offload Skype.
Recently we're hearing how Verizon is clipping its VoiceWing VoIP business.
It's becoming "crystal clear" to me that Verizon is going to buy Skype and offer the VoIP service to their FiOS customers as a value add. You know, "...those cable guys are making you pay for voice... we'll give you voice for free. Oh and check out our new devices, our diverse lineup of over 100 HD channels, and for a nominal fee, please take advantage of the seamless integration with our wireless service."
With everyone else speculating that Skype might go to Google, or Microsoft, or BT or France Telecom or Cisco... I figured I'd throw Verizon's name out there.
