Is Clearfly Communications a phone company or an ISP?
Clearfly Communications is a provider of integrated communications services for small and medium size businesses. Integrated communications make intelligent use of the IP protocol and packed-switched technology to provide data, voice and, more recently, mobile communications to consumers and businesses. Clearfly is a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC), a type of telecommunications operator that has been enabled by the FCC through the Telecommunications Act of 1996. This legislation allowed companies, such as Clearfly, to place equipment in the local telephone office and to use the telephone cables to provide communications services in competition with telecommunications incumbents such as Qwest or AT&T. Most CLECs use a technology called VoIP to deliver voice services over the same network they use to deliver data.
