The article highlights that a handful of operators took the wraps of their Voice Over Internet Protocol Networks (VoIP) plans with many signing on partners rather than building from the scratch. The MSO is planning to offer a voice-only service to customers to further widen the subscriber net. Saint Louis-based MSO struck agreements with Sprint and Level 3 Communications Inc. to provide the core connectivity for VoIP service and it inked a deal with Accenture to provide the provisioning services. Nebraska-based MSO has also tapped Sprint to support a VoIP service that will go out to about 62,000 subscribers.
