I think there are some people on this site who might have good answers to this question.
Why don't I have VoIP? I've got broadband. All my friends have broadband. I pull down high fidelity internet radio all the time. But, when I want to talk to my friends I pick up the phone. What is the deal?
I don't even want to interconnect to the POTs system, but while I'm talking about this, dialpad.com used to offer free ad supported voice calls. Now they have a VoIP calling card system. Did the economics not work out or were people turned off by the quality level??
Is there some software out there for this that I just don't know about? Is there some technical problem that prevents this from working, or is the problem economic?
Aren't the service providers looking for ways to expand bandwidth utilization? Why aren't they working on this stuff?
What IS the deal?
