EarthLink has peered their new VoIP network with 2 other Free VoIP networks FWD – Free World Dialup and SIPphone. Both of these networks use Xten software.
At Supercomm 2004 Mr. Pulver’s team presented some slides that showed over 42% of the entire FWD endpoints as being Xten’s X-Lite software, not including X-PRO or eyeBeam. This is almost more than all other endpoints combined including Microsoft’s Messenger, Cisco’s IP Phones and ATAs, Pintel softphones and handsets.
ATLANTA, October 5, 2004 EarthLink (NASDAQ: ELNK), one of the nation’s leading Internet service providers (ISP), today announced the launch of EarthLink Free Online Calling, a service which enables EarthLink High Speed access subscribers to make Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls free-of-charge.
This new offering reflects EarthLink’s continuing efforts to be a leader in the deployment of VoIP services. Last year, the company became the first major ISP to offer a comprehensive VoIP solution, EarthLink Unlimited Voice, providing subscribers with a flat-rate, broadband telephony service that includes features to reach wireless or traditional land-based telephones.
“EarthLink Free Online Calling is part of our overall strategy to develop and deploy a full suite of data and voice-based communication applications,” said Tom Andrus, vice president of products and services at EarthLink. “With the debut of EarthLink’s latest VoIP service, our broadband subscribers can call and talk with friends and family over the Internet for free.”
