Vonage offers $29.99/month unlimited as well as $24.99 Unlimited Llocal + 500 long distance, as well as a Basic 500 plan for 500 Anywhere minutes at $14.99/month. They also have business plans available.

Verizon actually partnered with deltathree to provide a suite of back office integration and management services including: account sign-up, billing, account management, credit card processing and fraud management, as well as VoIP telephony features. deltathree will also provide its Customer Service Interface (CSI) for customer service functionality.
