The rumors of BellSouth buying Vonage for some insane amount of money have been doing the rounds for a long time. A news announcement from the company however should be enough to put those rumors to rest. BellSouth announced that it is working with Lucent and will build out a VoIP network in its 9-state territory. In the press release, BellSouth CTO Bill Smith was quite explicit about company’s VoIP plans and added, “BellSouth’s new consumer VoIP capability is a critical component leading to a comprehensive experience that integrates voice, data and video in a way that best meets the needs of the individual customer.” Given this development, I wonder what are the “buyer” options for Vonage?
