It's always a good thing when major broadband home router companies such as D-Link or LinkSys implement QoS into their routers. This will help better and improve the end-user's VoIP experience. Let's just hope D-Link doesn't pull a LinkSys and offer "exclusive" deals to a single VoIP broadband provider. In case you hadn't heard, SIPPhone sued Vonage over their exclusive deal with LinkSys. While I rooted for SIPPhone since I am all for openness, the lawsuit probably has little merit. Partnerships is just as much a part of capitalism as is openness. Still, I hope the major broadband router companies don't lock themselves into exclusive partnerships. The most successful VoIP companies will be those that are "open" and not those that try and protect their "turf".
In any event, here's the full release:
