Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a technology that enables voice calls to be broken up into packets of data that are routed over a broadband network and then reassembled at the terminating end of the call, bypassing most or all of the legacy public-switched telephone network.
Covad recently acquired GoBeam, a leading provider of VoIP services to small and medium businesses. Covad will be launching VoIP services to small businesses in the 100 markets we serve by the end of 2004 and extending these services to the consumer market.
maybe another acquisition before 2004 ends for the big launch?????
