$20 for VOIP?

$20 per month for VOIP? What a con job. If I want to use that technology I'll get a Magic Jack for $20 per YEAR!
This doesn't sound like VOIP to me. You would be making calls over Verizons Voice Network, not thier Data Network.
...
No, the article says it uses Verizon's cellular network, not VOIP.
...
It sounds more like a solution intended for people who have difficulty getting cellular service in their homes, similar to a femtocell

Wireless Local Loop

This technology has been around in non-developed countries for years now. Countries in which there was no landline infrastructure when wireless came out.

I worked on a few of these systems internationally. It's gets really fun when you see people riding a bicycle down the street w/ these base stations in a basket attempting to use them like a mobile phone! It caused a lot of headaches 'cause these stations where never made to perform handoffs, just remain stationary.
