Regulatory Status of VoIP across the World

Lest Andy’s recent post give wrong impression to you, let me bring to your attention a report published by ITU. A clip from that report: “VoIP is (explicitly) legal in Algeria, Australia, Austria, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chad (internationally), Chile (at the local level), Colombia, Croatia, Czech Rep., Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Rep. of Korea, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Norway, Panama (domestically), Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovak Rep., Slovenia, S.Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan (China), Tanzania, Thailand, Togo, Turkey, Uganda, UK, Uruguay, US, Viet Nam, Zambia.” (emphasis are mine).

One should not confuse interconnect regulation with illegality. We have to use Pulver ruling as the basis, since that has been the long standing rallying cry. Come to think of it given the recent SunRocket debacle, some form regulation protecting the rights of consumers may be a good thing.
