TowerStream Teams with Vonage for VoIP Over WiMax

TowerStream, a provider of fixed wireless Internet services, will team with Vonage, to offer VoIP over its network.

TowerStream operates pre-WiMAX networks in the U.S. serving such markets as New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, the greater Boston, Providence and Newport, R.I. areas.

With the new alliance, TowerStream plans to offer small businesses an alternative to the existing phone companies for both voice and broadband with flat rate billing.

"TowerStream and Vonage both represent alternatives to the legacy telephone networks, offering better features at a substantially lower cost. Combining these services will enable increased flexibility, reliable performance and cost savings to enhance the productivity of any size business, and can be up and running in a matter of days, not weeks or months," said Jeff Thompson, COO of TowerStream.
