SBC inched closer this week to launching an Internet phone service for
homes by signing a two-year deal with New York-based deltathree to
provide much of the service's nuts and bolts.

Under the terms of the agreement, deltathree will provide SBC with
virtually all the crucial elements for offering and managing a
residential Internet phone service, from billing to application
development. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"This wraps it up for the vendor work," SBC spokeswoman Sue McCain
said. She added that SBC expects to have the service ready for public
consumption as early as February.

The SBC Internet phone service, now being tested in Los Angeles,
Chicago, Dallas and San Antonio, is likely to resemble VoiceWing, an
Internet phone service Verizon Communications began selling in July.
