Judge Halts NY PSC From Regulating Vonage Service

July 7, 2004

By Cheryl Bolen

U.S. District Court Judge Douglas Eaton announced his intention to enjoin the New York State Public Service Commission from regulating Vonage Corp., a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service provider, as a telephone company, the company announced late June 30.

On May 19, the New York commission declared that Edison, N.J.-based Vonage was a telephone company as defined by state law, and ordered the company to obtain a certificate to operate in the state.

Eaton serves on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. His written order is expected soon, and Vonage said the judge will consider the merits of a permanent injunction in January 2005.

Vonage said this decision reinforces an October 2003 decision by a district court judge in Minnesota, which permanently enjoined that state's public utilities commission from regulating Voip providers as telecommunications providers.

Vonage is seeking to avoid multiple and disparate state rulings on the classification and regulation of Voip providers, hoping instead that the Federal Communications Commission will assert jurisdiction. The company has been urging commissioners in recent weeks to act at least in part on its pending petition, in which the company asks that its service be considered "interstate" in nature and therefore subject to FCC jurisdiction.

The FCC has a broad rulemaking under way on the proper classification and regulation of Internet Protocol-enabled services, such as VoIP. The commission adopted a notice of proposed rulemaking in February.

Credit to Commission

In a statement, Jeffrey Citron, chairman and chief executive officer of Vonage, said he is satisfied with the judge's decision. "Vonage remains eager and committed to working with the states, Congress, and the FCC to create a national framework for this emerging industry," he said.
Vonage attributed much of the judge's decision to the work on this issue by FCC Chairman Michael Powell and the commission. The FCC has held workshops on several of the specific issues related to VoIP, such as emergency 911 capabilities, access for the disabled, and wiretap capabilities for federal law enforcement officers.

Vonage said it would continue to participate in the work of the commission and at the state level to "bring clarity" to public policies affecting Voip service.

Generally, there are several different ways to provide Voip service. The commission so far has made two relevant rulings on the service. In February, the commission ruled that the service provided by, which allows its subscribers to talk to any other subscriber over the Internet, was a Voip service.

On the other hand, the commission ruled in April that the service offered by AT&T, which picks up calls from the public switched telephone network, transports them via the Internet, then delivers them on the switched network, was not a Voip service.

Vonage provides a mix of both types of services. A Vonage customer can make a call over the Internet to another Voip subscriber, similar to the service. However, a Vonage customer can also call someone who is not a Voip subscriber, and the call is completed on the public switched telephone network.

The company said it currently has 195,000 subscribers and is adding customers at a rate of 20,000 per month.

Residential service is offered at about $30 per month for unlimited local and long-distance calling. Vonage handles more than 5 million calls per week, it said.
