NetZero VoIP Update

Just one more thought I had regarding my NetZero VoIP blog entry. I wonder if perhaps NetZero will offer VoIP to broadband users and then try and "undercut" Vonage, Packet8, CallVantage, etc.? NetZero built its reputation as having the "cheapest" dial-up data Internet service, so why not expound on that and offer the "cheapest" voice over IP service? Heck, I remember the day when NetZero was "free" (ad supported), so imagine if they subsidize their future VoIP offering and make it "free" as well?

Of course, I also remember when NetZero changed from "zero" cost to a not-so-zero cost. Annoyed a lot of people - me included - since I had a few NetZero accounts setup on some TMC laptops. Still, someone of NetZero's size and financial backing has the fortitude to offer "free" VoIP calling, which really could cause major waves in the VoIP industry.
