AT&T has announced they've launched their U-Verse VoIP (Voice-over-IP) phone service in Kansas City. (The one in Kansas, not Missouri.) The service features unlimited calling to the U.S. and Canada for $40 per month.
This is welcome news for those who like to pay far too much for phone service. Companies like Vonage and local ISP, KCnet.com, have been offering unlimited VoIP service for under $25 per month for the last several years.
