On the seven-point rating scale defined by Frost & Sullivan, magicJack scored an impressive 6.7, 6.6 and 6.3 in the categories of costing, worth and user-friendliness, respectively.

In a statement, Mike Jude, Program Manager, Frost & Sullivan said, “We have been tracking the evolution of Internet-delivered services for some time. magicJack demonstrates that such services are now entering the main stream. The fact that magicJack rated so highly in quality and value indicates that it is definitely providing a service that its customers like…and more importantly, want.”
