This article focuses on the services rolled by various telephone companies. Time Warner Cable Inc. has rolled out an IP-based telephony service in each and every one of its 31 divisions, and at the end of 2004 had 220,000 phone customers. Cablevision is stealing telephony market share in the Northeast with its Optimum Voice service, which passed the 250,000 subscriber mark in December and is adding 1,000 new customers per day Comcast might prove to be the last straw when it makes good on its promise to roll out VoIP to 15 million homes in 20 different markets this year and to the rest of its footprint in 2006, In all, Comcast predicts it will garner 20 percent market share of homes passed with VoIP within five years.
