This Article explores the many perspectives on Voice over Internet Protocol ("VoIP"). The notion of the Article is not to resolve the definitive approach to VolP. Rather, this Article suggests that the process of the approach has itself become muddled. Individuals quibble, contrasting the superiority of one perspective over another, negating the reason why they were looking in the first place. This Article is the second part of a project to survey and analyze state VoIP policy. The first part of the project surveyed state VolP regulatory activity. This part seeks to place that precedent in a centrifuge, segregating out different groupings of precedent to determine whether patterns or lessons might emerge.
