“When we decided to enter into this market, I knew that we would have to step up our game and not fall into mediocrity if we wanted to succeed. Putting together a world-class management team with real telecom experience is essential to executing this strategy, but often overlooked by many new VoIP startups.

Brandinger will oversee and manage all technical aspects of VOIPo’s operations including infrastructure, development, regulatory compliance, and technology strategy. After nearly two years of development, the company plans to begin selling service publicly by the end of the second quarter.
