Is the Future of Voice Free....ala Skype?

I doubt it.....I REALLY doubt it.

Industry analysts tend to stand around debating which VoIP provider, telco or cable company will best cash in on VoIP. While this goes on, the Economist points out that it's very possible that the final chapter to this story ends with all voice communications being completely free.

Of course two reasons it isn't yet is the slow evolution of VoIP over 3G, and general call quality. If you want an example of just how unreliable that "free" service is you don't need to look any further than recently when Skype CEO Niklas Zennstrom couldn't get his own technology to work properly during a media event.
