Vonage Back to the original question... This question is phrased as which technology

Back to the original question...

This question is phrased as which technology is better. I would argue that Voip is clearly a superior technology than PSTN. It is based on a fault tolerant, self repairing network. It can achieve higher capacity using the same transmission lines. It permits significantly higher functionality with features like nomadic use, intelligent call routing and an email like addressing scheme.

If you want to talk about which is a better product then you need to talk about services and not technologies. PSTN services are more established and the current infrastructure (E911, toll free services) are designed around it. Their maturity and evolution mean that they have a general reliability advantage. Voip services are newer, less regulated and the services rarely make use of all of the functionality made available by the technology.

While cost has been a differentiator in the past between services, it will become less so as the traditional carriers move to hybrid solutions that rely on Voip as the soft gooey center to reduce cost*. People will then look at what they wish to accomplish with their phone service and will essentially be choosing between solutions where the phone service is linked to the last mile (cable, telco) versus solutions where service is decoupled from transmission mechanism.

Single provider solutions will likely provide billing efficiency and reliability through regulation and sole responsibility for dial tone whereas the decoupled service will benefit lower cost as a result of competition and enhanced features.

Hybrid services with more features from existing in place carriers may also make a showing competing on features with independent service providers and on cost with linked service/infrastructure providers.

The fear remains that decoupled services will be forced out of the market if incumbent last mile players are allowed to charge a premium for carrying their traffic. Competition in the last mile segment may mitigate that fear. Decoupled services will also be attacked on the price front by roll-your-own Voip services, but the technical complexity of these solutions will likely limit them to a niche market (like amateur radio or Linux).

*for information on price trends see the Feb. 07 FCC report that shows access charges for lines decreasing since mid '04. Consumer spending on wireline service has greatly decreased in the last decade, but a significant amount of that is due to increase cellular use.
