Forrester just came out with a report saying that despite a 200% increase in adoption in 2004, VoIP is overhyped. Forrester is flat-out wrong.

In fact, VoIP has been such a success that Vonage is said to be planning an IPO, and expects to raise $600 million, in addition to the $400 million it already has in venture capital. One day, and perhaps soon, we'll all be using VoIP instead of normal phone service. And that is no hype.
