Residents of Rio Rancho, New Mexico in the United States can use voice over Wi-Fi in town: Azulstar Networks is building the Wi-Fi network, which the company claims already covers 70 percent of Rio Rancho, and Ecuity, a telephone company, is supporting the voice over IP feature. Customers get unlimited North American calling for $30 a line.
This is quite an undertaking. Coverage will have to be absolutely top notch or customers will get annoyed. People are used to being able to use their cordless phones anywhere in the house so if their Wi-Fi phones don’t work everywhere the offering may not be worth the hassle.
