Jajah Takes Over Yahoo’s Telephony Services

In what looks like a similar arrangement to what Jangl did with Jajah a while ago, Jajah scores big by doing a deal with Yahoo to take over providing voice services for 97 million Yahoo IM profiles. It’s probably not 97 million users as I’m sure several people have more than one ID, but it’s still a lot of people!

I will admit I wasn’t quite sure what Jajah was doing by both having a retail play and having a backend play. Maybe the retail play was to prove they had scale while they built this massive platform. It’s certainly going to be put to the test with all those Yahoo users!
