  1. Recently FCC ruled that “nomadic” VoIP services are interstate in nature. I suspect that “facilities based” service providers (meaning one has to use their access network to get the service) are not nomadic.

This will help them in the PR campaign to distinguish themselves against other VoIp providers and to place them on par with the incumbents.
