Vonage This statement alone negates any valid points the author makes. It is ignorant




This statement alone negates any valid points the author makes. It is ignorant to dismiss the advantage Vonage has by not having a legacy POTS network (and its associated costs) within a fixed geographic region and regulations preventing them from competing in certain areas. The author of this article neglects all of the non-POTS features that Vonage currently offers that it would take the ISPs time and effort to establish, including relationships with ILECs and CLECs in other geographic areas.

I don't see where you are disagreeing with my statement. The author's premise is that ISPs can do anything Vonage can do at less cost.

He fails to point out why the ISPs can offer it cheaper, only pointing out that their advertising costs would be less. He disregards features that cable companies can not offer to customers that Vonage can. He fails to take into account local franchise fees and taxes that can add significantly to ISP bills. He neglects the issue that Vonage is already an international company and that that has direct benefits for customers.

One other big point he missed is that cable companies and telephone companies are locked in a battle with each other offering video, voice and data. They don't have the time or resources to worry about Vonage for the near future.

The issue that remains is can Vonage do anything to protect themselves from the eventual conversion to Voip by the major ISPs? Yes, namely they can continue to grow their customer base so that geographically limited attacks can be avoided with special promotions offered when a user attempts to terminate. And they can grow geographically, especially internationally, to extend their reach beyond that of these US centric ISPs.

Everyone with a blog has been saying that anyone can build a Voip network. That's true, but actually running a business, getting custom hardware built and in the stores, picking target markets, dealing with regulatory issues, those are the reasons why Vonage has grown so much faster than the other Voip players. Dismissing what they have done based on the technical requirements is OK for people who build their own Asterisk server, but it isn't good business sense.

My experience with support mirrors yours (first recommending Vonage, later keeping my mouth shut). However, the single biggest thing that Vonage can do to fix the problem is, in fact, being done. Go to Vonage's web site and look at how many cities are now covered by their professional installation program. It is likely that Vonage installers will become as plentiful as DirecTV installers. This first line of customer support will resolve most issues before they ever hit Vonage customer support.

There is one customer support feature that T-Mobile has that I would love to see Vonage adopt. If you call in and wait times are long then you can enter a phone number and the system will call you back when your turn in line comes up.

Analysis: ISPs Are Going To Eat Vonage''s Lunch

Thats very interesting! My cable company (Insight Communications) is coming
How can a Voip provider leach off a high speed access that I paid for. It is a
maryjane what does your cable companys VoIP bandwidth use? Does it have a bandwidth
I don't use it so I don't know.
The cable co's VoIP usually uses a different data channel on the integrated modem/VoIP
Well, same cable but different RF channel so the data traffic is separate, not
Well, to be fair, the author didn't try to say that anyone was eating their lunch
A comment on the subject of this thread. ISPs don't have a huge price advantage
