VOIP, The Traditional Telephony Killer?

FrenchyinOntario writes “According to an article on IT World Canada’s web site, an Ontario-based technology research firm says that 23% of small-to-medium-sized businesses have already implemented VOIP technology, and that traditional telephony companies need to adapt or die (big surprise there!) in order to remain viable. I don’t necessarily agree with research analyst’s George Goodall’s claim that “It may be too late,” since VOIP still suffers from troubling security issues as well as the possibility of SPITstorms. It’s still too early to tell whether it will be a rehash of ten years ago when the telephone companies (even before the rise of the ILECS after the 1996 Telecom Reform Act) pishposhed the rising popularity of the Internet until they jumped onboard at the last minute.”
