I was at a dinner last night hosted by the wonderful people at Outcast Communications (Thanks Caryn!) and met a journalist with Barrons who, upon discovering that I was a VoIP blogger, immediately wanted to know... you guessed it! Who is going to buy Vonage?
It seems that everyone wants in on the game now. Gee, it was kind of fun three months ago when Bryan Richard at VoIP Magazine and I started talking about this, but enough already! Just sell the darn thing! I imagine that they have received offers... perhaps they just aren't being offered enough (or enough in their minds). At times like this it is important to remember Pointcast... remember back to 1998 when they pulled their IPO and then didn't sell out to Rupert Murdoch, BellSouth ... and others... a list of potential acquirers that sounds a lot like the ones being whispered as interested in a Vonage acquisition.
Will history repeat itself?
