Sad day in VoIP: Voxalot R.I.P.

This weekend started with a very sad message for VoIP tinkerers like me:

Dear Voxalot User,

We are sorry to inform you that due to the rising cost of operations, we have been forced to discontinue the Voxalot VoIP service. This change will be effective from December 31st, 2011.

If you have renewed your subscription since September 1st 2011 and would like a refund, please contact Unfortunately, payments for subscriptions older than this are unable to be refunded. Please be aware that a refund will reverse your payment and cause your account to be downgraded to a Basic account.

We thank you for your support for Voxalot, and are sorry for any inconvenience that this announcement will cause, and wish you the best in the future.

Voxalot was always fun to use if you like to play with SIP providers, call connection rules and VoIP arbitrage. They even sent me a nice cap with their logo. Thanks a lot and rest in peace, Voxalot!

On a sidenote: Another friend and VoIP entrepreneur invited me today to become a fan of his new venture's Facebook page. It's a limo service! Meanwhile Dean Elwood's VoIP User website seems to be offline and Pat Phelan, Luca Filigheddu and Andy Abramson didn't blog about VoIP in months. It's not only my blog that is in hiatus. This VoIP party looks so over! At least the technology works perfectly and I use it everyday. Only that there isn't much to write about.

Or, as Alok Saboo said at truVoIPbuzz: "It definitely is an end of an era!".
