Hmm, says I. Sounds like many VoIP service pitches I have been hearing. In fact, Duffy quotes one user (a college campus CIO) as saying in effect that because of Iobi's capabilities, direct investments in campus-wide VoIP aren't quite as mission-critical.

Verizon is offering Iobi in its Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions.

Just in case you're wondering, Iobi costs $8 a month per user. Ouch, that's cheap. Cheaper than you-know-what.

Anyone try Iobi? If so, TalkBack to us and let us know your experiences with it.
