Cablevision crosses 1M VoIP sub mark

While recent reports peg the current U.S. IPTV subscriber base at about 500,000, Cablevision now joins Time Warner in the 1 million VoIP customer club. Cablevision claims it has saved $500 million for its subscribers to the service, but analysts feel the claim is dubious. While the news is an obvious threat to VoIP pureplays like Vonage, it's also a time for reflection from the telcos that are slowly rolling out IPTV services. IPTV is just getting off the ground, and the cable companies have the lead on the telcos with their voice services, which they are selling--in the million, apparently.
