Because such pieces tend to be overly general and "gee-whiz" in tone, I generally do not note them here. This article is an exception, mainly for the reason that they point to some VoIP features not familiar to every current or would-be VoIP services subscriber.
Stuff such as decoy busy signals, and call forwarding flexibility not often available over PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) lines.
The article also offers a link to the Web site of Lingo - an underpublicized but very reasonably priced VoIP access provider.
Do you find articles such as the U.S. News & World Report piece useful? Maybe you don't find it useful for yourself, but what about for forwarding to a colleague, friend or family member? Let me know by posting a TalkBack.
