[World Domination] German telco invests in VoIP company

VoIP and telcos do not see eye to eye. Telcos see VoIP as enemy and threat. From blocking VoIP calls to patent infringement cases, the battle between the two seems endless. So I am surprised by the news that German telco Deutsche Telekom is investing in Jajah, a VoIP company that offers Web calling service.

Hmmm. Embracing what is inevitable? Or hedging for world domination? DT's T-Online service now integrates Jajah Web interface. Is that a sign of things to come?

This investment is good for Jajah. If DT wants to enter the VoIP market with minimum cost, this investment is probably the most prudent way to do it.
