The Internet Stops Legacy Telecos

27 February 2004

Voice-over-IP will completely replace all legacy telecommunications within the decade. That’s my belief.

Whether we consider small, residential needs or vast commercial needs, the economics of fast, open and unregulated IP communications will prevail over the entrenched centrally-planned bureaucracies of the past. Some of the names might be the same, but the network and what they do will look dramatically different.

Walter Mossberg provides a glimpse of how this is starting on the residential side. It isn’t difficult to see how quickly it scales to global enterprises.
