Packet8 Adds User Chat And Blogging

In what could be considered a first, Packet8 has introduced a free add-on service for its VoIP phone subscribers that includes subscriber message boards and, oddly enough, blogging. It seems like a general vanilla support site with some extra community interaction features. Here’s a snippet from the letter they sent out.....


You are cordially invited to become a citizen of the new Packet8 Online Community,
a place on the Internet where you can:

* Learn more about Internet phone service and the technology behind VoIP

* Chat with other Packet8 subscribers

* Read 8x8 CEO Bryan Martin’s blog

* Create your own blogs

* Discover how to troubleshoot minor Packet8 issues

* Share your expertise with others

* Learn about the latest Packet8 promotions

* Post your own advertisements, thoughts, opinions, feedback, photos and feelings in forums and special interest groups


Interesting....VERY interesting.

I'm already partial to Packet8 over other broadband phone providers. With this development maybe more folks will discover them and stop being swayed by the Vonage mass marketing media campaign. 'Bout damn time.
