Vonage Reviews

Vonage My motivating factor was reduced cost, regardless of where the savings come from.




My motivating factor was reduced cost, regardless of where the savings come from. But only part of the savings come from fewer taxes on Voip. Part of the savings come from unlimited long-distance. Part of the savings come from not having to pay BellSouth extra fees for touch-tone dialing, call waiting, caller ID, caller ID deluxe, call forwarding, three-way calling, voicemail, etc.

Being unregulated isn't the magic elixer for affordability. Yes, that's part of why Vonage is less expensive than POTS, but truthfully only a very small part. The big savings for Voip providers is in not having to run cables to every home or business in the country. The infrastructure costs in POTS are immense. Not to mention every time somebody digs up a line, three trucks and six union guys have to show up on the scene.

Don't forget that cable companies are regulated, too. Yet they are starting to provide Voip services for much less than the telcos. How can this be possible if regulation is the reason your POTS line was so expensive?

I'm really looking forward to Comcast's Voip rollout. Their solution transmits Voip data on a different data channel, so it has dedicated bandwidth and never even passes through your cable modem, and your network connectivity is never affected by Voip, and vice-versa. (I'll say this before some goober tries to say that's not possible...does digital cable or OnDemand programming pass through your cable modem?) Which is really nice, because they can't blame issues on your ISP. And because the cable companies are regulated carriers, they also provide true E911 services exactly like POTS (because the telcos can't prevent them from accessing the system).

Not only is it a technically-superior and more robust solution, but Comcast's pricing strategy is $40 for existing customers of either cable TV or internet service, or $55 for VoIP-only service. That's right, you can get Voip without broadband, because their solution is a standalone device that doesn't need a cable modem. Of course, bundling services together lowers the cost, which is part of what they're counting on to attract and retain customers. But even if all you wanted was telephone service, $55 is a lot cheaper than the $80 BellSouth was getting from me every month...and on top of that, you're getting more for your money with free long-distance, 24 hours a day.

So $25 for Vonage, or $40 for Comcast...unless Vonage gets a whole lot better, I'll be thrilled to spend an extra $15 for that solution if it (a) doesn't affect my network routing or connectivity in any way, (b) gives me real E911 service, (c) has the reliability that I've come to expect from Comcast, and (d) doesn't have anything to do with Vonage.

So come on, Comcast, bring it on. And in the meantime, Vonage, get your act together.
