Vonage All I can say is, I'm using Vonage right now, because I make lots of calls and they





All I can say is, I'm using Vonage right now, because I make lots of calls and they are cheaper than POTS. With the emergence of tons of open-standard Voip clients all using dynamic DNS rather than POTS routing, Vonage and other companies will soon realize that they HAVE to play ball, or be lost.

If and when Vonage ceases to be the cheapest, I'll use another method. Given that large companies, such as the one I work for, are all going Voip and griping about the cost of VoIP<->POTS gateways, I think you'll find that the logical next step is for companies to start using Voip to talk to each other, and whenever possible to their customers.

Your "more customers means higher prices" is based on a false assumption. As Vonage's customer base increases, their infrastructure costs (assuming they need to maintain the same POTS gateways) do increase, that's true. But their COST PER CUSTOMER goes down. They may or may not pass those savings along, but economy of scale and competition will probably cause them to remain about the same.

The whole point is that prices are based on two things:

1. Cost - as Voip becomes more popular, Vonage will be paying less for POTS gateways. Why would they want to pay Verizon for access to SunComm's customers? Eventually, as Voip adoption rates increase, Vonage and SunComm will form a direct link to each other. It makes financial sense, as it cuts the cost for BOTH companies. Partnered Voip vendors do not need to pay POTS providers as much money, because their customers can talk to each other without Ma Bell.

2. Competition - as Voip increases, more and more Voip networks will be built. Given the ridiculously low cost (to the "phone company") of a Voip to Voip call, it's a no-brainer that everyone will want to get in. I'd gladly buy a half dozen Voip accounts from competing vendors at a buck or two a month each (which would reflect true cost plus margin for pure point-to-point VoIP), or set up free ones like Skype, just like I maintain seven Instant Message accounts so everyone can talk to me no matter what IM protocol they choose.

Eventually, maybe, one phone company will rule them all in Voip. But then, like Ma Bell in the 70's, they'll be declared a monopoly and broken up or price-regulated as such. In the meantime, with the openness of the Internet, alternatives will always exist. And remember, Vonage will continue to compete with the POTS vendors who already have copper in place. If their prices go too high, many of us will just call Ma Bell and have the ol' copper lifeline glued back to the side of the house.
