I was just reading the VoIP Lowdown blog where I happened upon an entry discussing how India is losing tax revenue in telecom because of VoIP. They are considering banning it according to the entry. What is surprising, if this story is true — is how short sighted it would be for India to ban voice over IP as the entire call center industry being offshored to India came about because of VoIP in the first place. One would imagine the benefits of having so many call centers in your country is more important to the economy than telephone revenue. Well if they ban it perhaps call centers will just find homes in other countries and leave India.
