11.5 mln will get their telephone via cable Internet in 2010

According to The Diffusion Group, the number of cable telephone subscribers is expected to grow from 2.4 mln in 2003 to 11.5 mln in 2010. This rapid expansion reflects a strong commitment on the part of cable service providers to expand voice offerings as well as the belated introduction of VoIP offerings on the part of major legacy phone players.
