Circuit City to Begin Selling High-Speed Internet Telephone Service

The Miami Herald is reporting a major coup for Vonage. The coup? Richmond-based Circuit City Stores Inc. will become the first major retailer in the country to sell high-speed Internet telephone service at all 600 of its superstores.
Vonage Holdings Corp., based in New Jersey, announced that it will be the provider of the hardware and telephone service at the retailer beginning Monday.
Making phone calls via the Internet, using your high speed DSL connection and not your traditional telephone company, is cheaper and more feature rich. Distributing this service via Circuit City, with I’m sure other retail stores to come on board, makes VOIP more and more mainstream.
