NextWeb, the wireless ISP in California, said it will introduce voice over IP services starting in May: NextWeb targets business customers and recently introduced service in Los Angeles, following up on its flagship San Francisco market. Voice services are important for companies like NextWeb that are targeting business customers because the voice capability enables NextWeb to offer bundles that are competitive to those offered by the telcos. The possibility of a high-quality voice over IP over wireless service is relatively recent because the equipment must support quality of service and other mechanisms that can give priority to voice traffic and ensure a level of call quality. In addition to the standard call waiting, call forwarding, and caller ID services, customers will also get additional bells and whistles like integration with Microsoft’s Outlook.
