We are currently experiencing a rise of interest in mobile operator VoIP services as carriers move to protect their voice revenues from the likes of Skype. The reason for this rise is almost certainly tied to the imminent global roll out of LTE. AT&T has announced a service named Call International and Telefonica has announced TuME. Even T-Mobile’s Bobsled service would come into the category, although it’s definitely a unique experiment.
