Amway To Tupperware To VoIP?

from the hype-hype-hype dept

If yesterday’s news that there are apparently 1,100 different VoIP providers worldwide didn’t get you thinking about the VoIP “bubble” situation, then perhaps this story talking about all of the people jumping into VoIP pyramid schemes will drive home the idea. I’ve heard of people being hassled by VoIP resellers, but apparently it’s a lucrative business for a few people. However, like most MLM schemes, it’s unlikely to last. With increasing competition coming from the big boys of telecom and the simple fact that MLMs are designed to fail because they give no real competitive advantage to anyone (and, in fact, expect you to recruit your own competitors), it’s unlikely these pyramid VoIP offerings will be around all that long.

After it turned out that the girls were lying, the media quickly dropped the story.

Yeah, if someone starts the rumor that VoIP is really an NSA conspiracy, ….
