EarthLink preparing WiFi phone beta test

EarthLink WiFi phone test

Even as VoIP phone services become more prevalent, most of them are still based on landline Internet connections. EarthLink is poised to disturb this with an upcoming beta WiFi rollout, possibly as soon as tomorrow. Testing of a phone by Accton Technology has already been conducted on EarthLink's Anaheim network, but despite successes, is only now being considered for a wider test. The primary issue with WiFi phones is likely to be reliability -- while wireless disruptions to games and web browsing may be acceptable, customers may not be willing to tolerate the same with critical voice calls.
