I haven’t had a landline phone in about four years, and I can’t imagine a time when I’d ever go back to one – unless I purchased a digital phone through my cable company. Honestly, I couldn’t even tell you what the rates are for local and long distance anymore because my cell-phone plan includes only minutes – not distance.

Reuters has a piece today about Jeff Pulver, the man behind VoIP, and he’s talking about his hope for a copper-free phone world.

It’s hard to argue with the claim that, at some point in the near future, VoIP will dominate the landscape in some form; however, I’ve tried to order the service from two places, and both times, the order was lost (despite repeated calls). It leads me to believe that, while the companies may be expanding, the kinks haven’t quite been ironed out just yet.
