vonage

Looks like Vonage (and by extension, all the other VoIP services) have lucked out: the FCC just ruled that Vonage is an "interstate service", which basically means they'll be regulated by the FCC rather than have to deal with the patchwork of rules and regulations that could be imposed on them by each individual. Doesn't mean they're completely in the clear, since states can still impose fees and taxes for some things, but it does mean that Vonage and the others aren't at risk of being regulated to death. Well, except by the Feds, that is.
