Vonage Helps To Make Telephone Calls Over The Internet Mainstream


Vonage In Print News

This Could Be The Year Making Telephone Calls Over The Internet Goes Mainstream

February 6, 2005

By William Freebairn

Just ask Jef Sharp, president of TechCavalry in Northampton. His computer repair and service company switched all of its phone calls over to a system that uses the Internet to make and complete calls.

The system is cheaper than conventional telephone service and offers some features standard phones cannot provide. The only downside is that users at the company sometimes hear a slight hollowness or echo during calls; those on the other end notice nothing, Sharp said.

"You can manage it from your Web browser and reroute calls to ring on a cell phone if you want," he said.

Using the public Internet for making telephone calls is not new, but the initial experience was suspect.

However, advances in the so-called voice over Internet protocol technology have improved call quality. The spread of broadband Internet connections, which are required for most of the services, has made the service more popular.

Companies such as Vonage, a start-up offering the voice over Internet service, have brought Internet telephone calls to the mainstream. Vonage charges $24.99 per month for unlimited Internet-routed local and long distance calls.

The company provides the access device, which must be connected to a high-speed Internet modem and a telephone.
Internet standards break up information into packets and send them across the network to the intended recipient, where the data, images or sounds are reassembled. The system makes efficient use of the wires and cables that connect people, but there can be slight delays as packets are rerouted or lost.

For Internet-based telephone service, this has meant anything from stuttering sounds to skips and echoes and lost connections. As the technology has matured, these problems have been minimized.

Verizon announced a service called VoiceWing, which uses a cable modem or digital subscriber line from the phone company itself to send calls. The Verizon service is $29.95 for Verizon high-speed Internet customers, $34.95 for those using other high-speed connections.

Cable company Comcast has offered telephone service based on traditional phone technologies to more than a million customers in eastern Massachusetts.

By the end of March, however, it will launch a phone service in Western Massachusetts and Connecticut based on the Internet technology.

Comcast will use its own network to route calls, avoiding the public Internet. Cable company officials have been struggling to differentiate their service from competitors on this basis.

"This is not what you've been reading about," said Douglas Guthrie, general manager for Comcast in Western Massachusetts.

Comcast will charge $39 a month for unlimited use for existing cable subscribers.

The Comcast service, unlike most of the other plans, is compliant with the new enhanced 911 system, meaning emergency dispatchers can see the address from which a call is being made. Verizon has limited 911 compliance and Vonage requires customers to register an address with their Internet-based phone number.

All the Internet-based phone services will offer unique abilities, such as the chance to check voice mail from any Web browser and forward messages via e-mail.
