VoIP Kills Cities

You can’t argue the fact that VoIP is the worst thing for balancing the federal and state budgets since the dotcom bust. A few years ago, you just couldn’t have imagined how much revenue is being lost on long distance to Vonage, Skype and a host of other companies eager to help consumers reduce their phone bills., But what’s great for consumers is obviously terrible for a government that feeds off the taxes we pay on local and long distance calling. Add to that the fees for the Universal Service Fund and you have a recipe for upset politicians ands federal bean counters that keep coming up a few beans short. An excellent USA Today Article details the potential crisis.
