EarthLink Expands VoIP Offering

Ed Oswald writes on BetaNews:

EarthLink said Thursday that it would expand its packaged DSL and phone service to eight additional markets in an effort to give consumers a alternative to local phone companies. First announced in January, the service is made possible through a partnership with Covad.
