VoIPexico in trouble
Skype confirmed Thursday that its Web site is inaccessible in some areas served by Telmex, Mexico's telephone monopoly. Skype isn't speculating as to why.
As a result, Telmex broadband subscribers can't sign-up for Skype, and existing Skypers can't use online customer care, replenish minutes on the pre-paid calling cards or order other premiums.
Telmex's alleged move is typical of how government-owned phone companies in places like Panama, Costa Rica, Qatar are defending themselves against lower-priced VoIP phone providers.
