Consumers open to idea of Net telephony

Published on .

More than six out of 10 computer users who participated in an Aragon Consulting Group study said they would consider switching from traditional long-distance calling services to Internet telephony if it guaranteed savings of 50%. "Consumers who are willing to sacrifice some quality in terms of sound and time lags in communication could save 50 to 100% [on long distance], depending upon their Internet access fee arrangement," said Gary Miller, president of Aragon. "That savings is worth it to those who understand the technology."
