While I was busy chasing down stories about Google’s earnings, finishing up my story for the magazine, the blogbees were doing their thing, trying to make sense of disparate bits of information, and assembling them into a honey pot about Google’s VoIP plans. Atleast the click-to-call strategy! Apparently, the company has signed a deal with VoIP Inc., and will be using their service for its click to call offerings and connecting to the PSTN. One should assume that Google is going to use VoIP Inc. for its Google Talk to PSTN connection service.
VoIP Inc has a colorful past. It was a tea importer, a business that might have enjoyed higher profits than cheap calls. (Read that Light Reading Story Very Very Carefully…. you might get a laugh out of it…especially paragraph Four.) It might, use a third party to interconnect to PSTN because it wouldn’t want the hassle of dealing with all that, but lets wait for that. Mark Evans has some thoughts … excellent as always.
