ABSTRACT
The article reports that venture capitalists are not shying away from investing in voice-over-Internet-protocol (VoIP) companies, especially VoIP equipment suppliers and mobile VoIP service providers. According to Justin Perreault, a partner at Commonwealth Capital Ventures, VoIP is still a growth industry for businesses that want to save money on internal calls or calls made to business partners. VoIP is also a rapidly growing area of the cable industry, and phone companies such as Verizon and AT&T are finally starting to market their VoIP services.
