It was too good not to post. Re: VoIP Regulation is NOT a Deal-Breaker for VoIP Adoption By Rich Tehrani, Group Editor-in-Chief, INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. Dear Mr. Tehrani: I couldn't help but call my high school son and daughter to show them this shameless propaganda for your advertisers. Your assertion that we, the end users, should focus mostly on features and capabilities rather than cost does a huge disservice to even your primary audience (the telecom vendor community). Do you not realize that regulatory red tape and parasitic fees/ taxes limit the entire market? One glance at DSL in the US vs. elsewhere in the world should convince you.
