The VoIP Weblog notes the launch of Time Warner Cable’s VOIP service in NYC. The pricing is out of whack for VOIP, but certainly less than you are probably paying Verizon for unlimited calling. Seems they’ve chosen to target pricing against Cablevision which makes no sense, since you can’t pick what cable company you buy service from anyway.
I’m not so sure it matters to the consumer. They’ll perceive it as such since phone service is coming from a different place than normal. In Marketing, perception can become reality.
