Cayman Islands VoIP

The Cayman Islands now has broadband VoIP. Guess that means criminals can not only offshore their money to the Cayman Islands, they can simultaneously make it harder for law enforcement to eavesdrop on their phone conversations. If you want anonymity, especially with the U.S. National ID card in the works, then the Cayman Islands is for you! I'm being facetious of course...

Anyway, Cable & Wireless of Cayman launched today their broadband telephony service to all three of the Cayman Islands. According to Net2phone, this proves that an outsourced telephony solution can be a value to the local incumbent telco as much as the cable operators that are looking to compete with them.
