Vonage Unless you have living under a rock these last few months, you must surely be aware

Unless you have living under a rock these last few months, you must surely be aware of the sudden increase in Vonage subscribers. Where just recently there were 200,000 subscribers there are now over 400,000, or 40% of the Voip market and growing fast. Consider the Customer Care Center. Where just a few months ago it took 5 minutes to answer a call, it now takes 10, and where it took 10 minutes, now 20. This present state of things is only temporary , but we Americans are used to getting what they want NOW ! So we whine and complain.

Now you can be sure that this situation was foreseen and occupies a large section of Jeffrey Citron's business plan, "What to do in case of growth". It comes down to money, as always. New Customer Reps can not be hired until the money from the new subscribers comes in. The new Reps have to be trained, a workplace provided (cubicle?) with manuals, computers, salaries, and of course - telephones. This does not happen overnight so we must demonstrate patience until it does. Furthermore, the existing Reps deserve our praise and respect for doing twice the workload that is normally required of them.

There are some things that we can do to ease the pressure on Customer Service. There are some difficulties that only they can resolve, such as billing, shipping errors, retailer problems, and the like. From reading through the topics, it seems to me that the majority of problems encountered are router related. Many people try to install their routers in exceptional formations. Thus, exceptional formations often produce exceptional enigma with unproved results. The Technical Support Team is trained to resolve common problems. What personal knowledge that the Technician brings with him to the workplace may be exceptional as well, and as a result some unusual problems get solved. It is impractical to study every configuration of the LAN in a multitudinous array of personal hardware and software. Instead, the focus is mainly on the OEM products that Vonage distributes to its users and in the installation configurations that the device was designed for and are displayed in the installation support page at

Linksys is the most common device shipped to users at this time. Cisco Systems is the OEM to Linksys. Cisco Systems and Linksys have been around for many years and have an excellent reputation in the field. So why do so many Vonage users have such unusual problems? I would suggest that those suffering from such exasperating difficulties with their router that they turn instead to the manufacturer. The Linksys advice line can be found at 1-800-546-5797; Technical Support can be found at 1-800-326-7114 or Linksys may have the answer that you are looking for, they know more about their products than anyone else.

Have you noticed that those who have installed their Adapter's according to the directions never report a problem? They consistently report that the ISP works fine, the Adapter works fine, the phone works fine, and there is never a complaint? There is a hint there somewhere. So please exonerate Customer Service. They are in a situation beyond their control. It's not their fault that service is slow. Stop the complaining, please, it's droll and immature.

Special praise should go to Dan Connor. He works on this form day and night. Somehow he finds the time to monitor it as well. Just try to find 1 hour of the day where he is not logged in and working. Amazing.
