Your case is justified because you seem to be qualified for something better than what your starting job was. So job hopping made sense for you.

As a hiring manager, I would not hire someone who has been job hopping for the same position. Think of it as a twist on the Peter Principle.

Fair enough, but, it seems to me that it is rarely the case that two positions at two different companies in our field are truly the same, even if the title is the same and/or they draw on similar skill sets.

My jobs were all in different subspecialisations of technology, but there is a certain identifiable sameness that unites all of them, and especially unites the first three (ISP and SMB-oriented IT consulting work) with the last three (VoIP & TDM telecommunications).
