Vonage UK news

My sources tell me that Vonage UK has appointed a CEO. I know who it is, but don't have the all-clear to say so. I know him, and he's bright and very experienced, particularly in startup brand building and wireless arenas. This is purely speculation on my part, but given what Vonage has going with UTStarcom on the handset front, and also how many hotspots there are in the UK (the second most unwired country in the world, according to Jiwire), I have to wonder if there is some strategic connection down the road. For example, once the GSM/Wi-Fi handsets start to roll, how about a full-blown MVNO?
