Vonage Since your comment above did not contain information about who the "most reputable

Since your comment above did not contain information about who the "most reputable competitors" were I looked up a few of the largest Voip operators and found the following. All seem rather alike to Vonage's TOS. Out of these four (and they are some of the largest providers of Voip) only Verizon mentions a presumption that 5000 or more minutes is not "residential" use. I assume from your statement that the rest are not "reputable."

Quoting from Packet8

10. PERSONAL USE. 8x8's Service Plans for residential End Users that offer unlimited minutes of PSTN calls ("Unlimited PSTN Plans") are for the reasonable personal residential use of End User only. This means that End User is not to resell or transfer the Service or Equipment to any other person for any purpose, without express written permission from 8x8 in advance. End Users shall not use the Services for commercial or governmental purposes, or for profit or non-profit activities, including, but not limited to, home office, business, sales, tele-commuting, autodialing, continuous or extensive call forwarding, continuous connectivity, fax broadcast, fax blasting, telemarketing, junk faxing, fax spamming, calling/faxing any person (through the use of distribution lists or otherwise) who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process or any other activity that would be inconsistent with personal and residential usage.... End User agrees to notify 8x8 immediately if usage of the Unlimited PSTN Plans changes from personal residential to business use and to subscribe to a business plan. 8x8 reserves the right to immediately terminate or modify the Services of any End User using Unlimited PSTN Plans if 8x8 determines, in its sole discretion, that End User is not using the Unlimited PSTN Plans for End User's reasonable personal residential use.

From Comcast Digital Voice...

b. Residential Use Only
Unless you subscribe to a Service plan that expressly permits otherwise, you agree to use the Services solely in a private residence; in living quarters in a hotel, hospital, dormitory, sorority or fraternity house, or boarding house; or in the residential portion of a premises used for both business and residential purposes. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree to use the Services only for personal and non-commercial purposes; however, you are permitted to use the Services to make business calls that are incidental to your personal and non-commercial use of the Services at the premises described in the preceding sentence.
You expressly agree not to use the Services for auto-dialing, continuous or extensive call forwarding, telemarketing, fax broadcasting or fax blasting, or for any other use that results in excessive usage inconsistent with normal residential calling patterns. If we determine, in our sole discretion, that your Service is being used for any of the aforementioned activities, we reserve the right (i) immediately and without Notice to terminate or modify the Service and (ii) to assess additional charges for each month in which excessive usage occurred.

Now from Verizon VoiceWing...

c. Use of Service and Device. You may not resell or transfer the Service to any other person for any purpose, or make any charge for the use of the Service, without express written permission from Verizon in advance. Verizon reserves the right to immediately terminate, change the calling plan or modify the Service if Verizon determines, in its sole discretion, that your usage exceeds our normal usage levels. Usage in excess of 5,000 minutes in any month shall be considered above normal levels and may be investigated and subject to the conditions above.

Time Warner Digital Phone...

(ii) If I receive Digital Phone Service, I agree not to use the Services for telemarketing, call center, medical transcription or facsimile broadcasting Services or for any enterprise purpose whether or not the enterprise is directed toward making a profit. I agree that, among other things, my use of the Services to make available my Digital Phone Service, or any portion thereof, to (or to provide or permit access by) persons outside the location identified in the Work Order (even if to a limited group of people or to other residences that I own or have the right to use), will constitute an enterprise purpose.

Does Vonage Define "Excessive Use"?

A competitor defines "excessive use" on a residential line as more than 5,000
In the 4 1/2 years of running this site, I have only heard of two times that Vonage
so vonage can be used then if you'd like to have a call center business?
Incoming or outgoing? I use it for incoming calls, about 40-50 per day no problems
Technically, using a residential Vonage line for any business is a violation
Residential accounts get flagged after 5000 minutes of use. After more than one
Thanks for the info, xcrunxc. I find it despicable companies are allowed
I think having 5000 minutes a month is resonable. I remember a few years back here
I don't think the actual number of minutes is the point here. If Vonage advertises
I know this applies to the 500 minute plan, but I also know that's a metered plan
