Cable operators, telcos and other voice-over-Internet-protocol providers can now gain the exclusive right to market, advertise and receive calls directly from 1-800-GET-VoIP within their own geographic markets.

“Using an industry-defining, memorable phone number that consumers can call to order VoIP services gives VoIP providers a strong competitive advantage,” Primary Wave CEO Gregg Hamerschlag said in a prepared statement.
“We have had a very strong response from some of the biggest names in the VoIP industry, which tells me that the timing is right for 1-800-GET-VoIP,” he added.
