You may have noticed that some people are abandoning or supplementing their conventional phone services in favor of VoIP, largely because it can be much more affordable to make calls — both local and long distance — over Skype than it is to make the call over a landline or a cell phone.
It seems like the cellular guys are starting to fight back against the invasion of VoIP, because word is that AT&T is working on a Skype-like service for its subscribers. This new service is designed, as you can imagine, to compete directly against Skype’s popularity. Set to be available in 2009, the AT&T VoIP solution would also work on WiFi-enabled cell phones.
Wait, is this just AT&T’s take on Fido UNO or T-Mobile [email protected]?
