SunRocket's AOL Management Defended by ... AOLers
And while I agree that there are issues with the business model of VoIP providers in general (and it's good you caught that on the AOL side), start-ups are about risk. SunRocket's failure was to bring in telco and big company management, that did not buy into the founders vision. All they wanted is to do what telcos do: build it, and bill for it. And you're right, you can't compete in a free market doing that.
Nice to stick up for your own, but remember the folks in the SunRocket debacle also cost your options a great deal of value too. Why else would your head of broadband be quoted saying "Broadband is irrelevant"?
In other news, it seems that nobody cares to read about Turkey. Blog traffic dropped to near zero, so I guess people prefer to look at their own navels. I'll let you get back to that.
