      The .tel domain is a great idea.  It provides a fresh solution to the "cybersquatting" issue, provides an excellent mechanism for locating small businesses online, and includes international solutions as a driving business goal. 

While the business plan obviously covers the international scene, I find the idea especially exciting for small business web sites to be found by local consumers.  Everyone knows how to find on the web, but it is more difficult to find "the Ford dealer 5 miles from your house" online.  This registration system would be fantastic for that purpose...Look it up in the local phone directory, type in the phone number, and you're there!  Excellent capability. 

I think the registration estimates in's business plan are definitely on the conservative side - I think a very significant number of businesses will see immediate business value from this capability.
