VoIP Inc. Eyes Smaller Cable Ops

9/27/2004 6:37 AM Eastern

VoIP Inc said Monday that it will provide wholesale Internet-phone services to small cable companies.

The Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based company is eyeing potential voice-over-Internet-protocol deals with about 1,100 smaller operators.

Time Warner Cable and Sprint Corp. have a similar arrangement in place for that MSO’s 10.9 million subscribers.

“We see a growing demand from midsized and smaller network-service providers in the area of VoIP, but the high price of operating a soft switch, termination network, billing system and the related staffing is typically outside the cost-effective range for these service providers,” VoIP Inc. CEO Steven Ivester said in a prepared statement.

“Our program is designed to be a very economical and efficient solution for these providers, enabling them to begin offering VoIP to their clients quickly and without a large investment of their time or money,” he added.
