The Internet as a Telephone Network.
DeMillo, Richard A.
Educom Review, v33 n1 p12-16 Jan-Feb 1998
Some Internet technologists predict that Internet telephony will topple the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and become the next telephone network. This article examines Internet telephony (real-time and non-real-time communications); its potential for integrating wireline, wireless, and Internet network services; and factors determining its growth: PSTN economics, Internet growth curves, and the Telecommunications Reform Act of 1996.
