The article reports on the addition of voice-over-Internet protocol (VoIP) telephony as another service to be offered by Surewest Communications to its Sacramento, California-area customers. VoIP could reportedly provide customers with advanced features as "find me, follow me," where a call can be programmed to ring one's cell phone if there is no answer on the home phone, and selective call screening, which allows a user to program the numbers from which calls will be accepted.
