Nacchio's law

Nacchio's law

"The number of ports and price per port of an IP gateway (analog voice to digital IP) improve by two orders of magnitude every 18 months," coined by Joseph Nacchio, former president and CEO of Qwest Communications and former head of long distance service at AT&T. Economical IP gateways enabled voice over IP to become commonplace. See Qwest.
