Upstart telecommunications company is making name for itself with inexpensive ph


Vonage In Print News 
May 21, 2003

By Jeff May

With slick television ads and a strong word-of-mouth campaign, Vonage is making a name for itself selling cheap phone service to customers with speedy Internet connections.

The privately held company has plenty of buzz. What it doesn't have -- by design -- is glitz.

Its headquarters is on a scruffy stretch of Route 27 in Edison, just across the road from an Entenmann's Bakery Outlet. The offices were once home to Aplion Networks, a telecommunications upstart laid low by the tech bust. The defunct firm's foosball table still occupies a prominent place in the middle of the suite.



Senior managers of the 110-employee company do not have offices, but work along a dim bank of cubicles known as "executive row." The customer service department is a collection of closely spaced desks arranged grammar school-style in the open. Frugality is the order of the day.

"The dot-com days are over," said Louis Holder, the company's executive vice president for product development.

Well, not entirely. Vonage uses voice-over-Internet technology to pipe phone calls through cable modems and digital subscriber lines.The system is cheaper to operate than traditional phone networks, and Vonage does not have to pay access fees to the likes of Verizon or BellSouth.

No one disputes that all networks are moving toward Internet standards, and cable companies have been eager to use the technology to undercut the Baby Bells. But Vonage is the first company to offer the service on a national scale.

It now has 25,000 subscribers, more than twice what it had at the start of the year. Through partnerships with Amazon.com and the Internet service provider Earthlink, it expects to have 100,000 by the end of the year, according to company spokeswoman Brooke Schulz.

"They've made a lot of buzz," said Robert Rosenberg, president of Insight Research, a technology consulting firm in Boonton. "Whether Vonage is here 10 years from now or sold is immaterial to the shareholders. This is the right business to be in."

Some analysts say the company's lead will be short-lived. Newark-based Net2Phone is running a trial of voice-over Internet service for Liberty Media's cable systems in Puerto Rico. Cablevision has launched its own offer on Long Island and in some parts of New Jersey. Comcast has a small pilot program in Pennsylvania.

Vonage is unlikely to rack up deals with major cable operators, who are irritated the company is poaching on their turf, according to Daniel Klein, an analyst with The Yankee Group. It should concentrate instead on partnerships with smaller cable players and Internet service providers, Klein wrote in a recent report.

Vonage officials said they are doing just that, and pushing for small business customers, too.

To order the service, subscribers have to have a cable modem or other fast Internet hookup. Vonage ships a device that attaches to the modem and allows customers to plug in their ordinary phones.

The service is offered in most places where broadband use is heavy. The New York-New Jersey region is Vonage's No. 1 market, Holder said. California is No. 2.

In New Jersey, the company offers unlimited calling throughout the United States for less than $44 a month, including taxes -- or as much as $20 less than plans from Verizon, AT&T or MCI.

There are an array of calling features, including Caller ID, call forwarding and the ability to call up and organize voicemail online.

One major drawback: The service won't work in a power outage, because cable and DSL modems are powered by household electricity. Customers can buy backup power supplies from computer stores, or can rely on cell phones if they have them, Holder said.

Vonage does offer a limited form of 911 service, but not directory services. And while the company has generally positive reviews on online discussion groups, many subscribers have complained about poor customer service.

"We're constantly adding new customer service reps," said Schulz, adding that the number of representatives increased from four more than a year ago to 75 or 80 now.

The company has no immediate plans to go public. One issue that could arise if the company did is a $22.5 million penalty the company's co-founder and chief executive, Jeffrey Citron, agreed to pay the Securities and Exchange Commission this year. Regulators alleged that Citron, who founded the Datek Online brokerage, executed illegal trades and made false filings. Under the settlement, Citron admitted no wrongdoing.
