Last week, Verizon announced that it's popular Digital Voice consumer phone service is becoming a completely VoIP-based connection. Instead of employing old copper telephone lines, Digital Voice will use Verizon's fiber optic cables. Verizon has been testing the VoIP service over FiOS since 2008, and the company's offering has been hotly anticipated. Looks like Verizon recognizes that old phone technology is on it's way out - the future of telecommunications is all in VoIP and mobile!

Verizon’s Digital Voice Goes All-VoIP

Verizon is maturing its current Digital Voice product — available in 11 states and the District of Columbia — with a total Voice over Internet Protocol solution. The service transitions away from the analog switches used previously, leverages Verizon’s existing and future investment in fiber optics, and reduces costs while improving the quality of service.
