Tim May at Astricon 2008: mini history lesson in telephony
Tim May with Etone Connect. He's a telephony historian, or at least, that is how I defined him. We met him at Astricon 2008. He became interested in Internet telephony in the early 90s (same as me, but for me, it was to help me teach English to middle schoolers). In 1997, they provided a voip calling card for retailers. They created a voiceover at 2 cents/minute and their first order was over $1 million.
They are a SIP trunking provider and wholesale telephony now. He remembers going to all the free Cisco training classes. Listen to the complete interview and check http://www.EtoneConnect.com.
