VoIP.   The current regulatory environment for VoIP services remains unclear. Our VoIP services are not currently subject to all of the same regulations that apply to traditional telephony. It is possible that Congress and some state legislatures may seek to impose increased fees and administrative burdens on VoIP providers. The FCC has already required certain VoIP providers to contribute directly into the Universal Service Fund as well as to meet various emergency service requirements (such as E911) and interception or wiretapping requirements, such as the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, or CALEA. In addition the FCC may seek to impose other traditional telephony requirements such as disability access requirements, consumer protection requirements, number assignment and portability requirements, and other obligations, including additional obligations regarding E911 and CALEA. Such regulations could result in substantial costs depending on the technical changes required to accommodate the requirements, and any increased costs could erode our pricing advantage over competing forms of communication and may adversely affect our business.
