Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

July 7, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest.

Today, we'll find out exactly how many people around the world use Voice over IP services such as Vonage. We'll look at one of the next major nations Vonage is planning to offer coverage in. We'll point out interesting new Vonage Voip Forum threads about how home wiring issues can effect your Vonage set-up, and explore the topic of what cable length is appropriate for Vonage connections.

In The Headlines

Voip Growing By Leaps And Bounds-And Vonage Is A Key Reason Why

According to a new report from market research firm Point-Topic, more than 17 million people around the world use VoIP.

That number grew from around five million users a year ago, and 11.5 million in March of this year.

The nation with the largest number of Voip users is Japan, with some 7.2 million consumers on board. After Japan, the U.S. is next with some 2.1 million Voip subscribers. A good chunk of those 2.1 million - more than 500,000- are Vonage subscribers. Vonage expects to have one million subscribers by year end in the three countries that they currently serve - the U.S., Canada and the U.K.

Notice I said "currently serve." Which brings us to our next news item of the day:

Report: Vonage Plans To Enter Australia

Now here's some big news. The Australian Financial Review reports today that Vonage is planning to enter the Australian market with service. (You can, of course, use your Vonage account to call Australia: but we're talking about Vonage service in Australia, for Australian customers.

The newspaper says that to gear up for the expected launch, Vonage has hired an executive search firm to assemble a group of financial, operations, and marketing executives.

The launch is expected sometime in the next several months, but Vonage isn't commenting yet. But given that Vonage is already in three highly industrialized, predominantly English-speaking nations (the U.S., U.K. and Canada), I'm not surprised by the possibility that Vonage would consider entering Australia next. The only question is when?

By the way, if you are one of our Australian readers (we do have some) we'd like to hear from you about what you would want and expect from Vonage service in your country. Vonage execs (as well as those executives being recruited by Vonage to head up Australia service) read us, so here's a chance to talk to them directly!

Best way to get their attention is to go to the Vonage VoIP Forum, log in, and then click the new topic icon.

And speaking of new Vonage Voip Forum topics:

On The Vonage Voip Forum

In a new thread called Cannot Disconnect from NIU!, new Vonage Forum member mwalus asks some questions about whether he handled wiring-related Network Interface Unit procedures correctly when he did the wire disconnection procedures necessary to enable his Vonage account. He fears that he may not have covered all his bases - and as a result, the dial tone he is getting might be for his SBC service, not his new Vonage.

Forum Members mundy5 and JohnM720 followed up with posts suggesting tests that mwalus can perform to track down the possible cause of a confusion- a second Network Interface Card SBC may have installed in his house. Following that advice, mwalus posted that he was unable to find anything that looked like a second NIU - only a large gray box below the NIU.

"The only thing inside that big gray box is a simple coax cable connection with a red tag that says HSD," mwalus writes. "No telco wires, no hub, just a coax wire running through with a connection." He adds he thinks this is his broadband cable interface.

By the way, that sounds correct to us: "HSD" stands for "High-Speed Data."

To that, veteran Vonage Forum member houuser makes his 201st post one with some wise advice:

"Before you plug in your Vonage Router, make sure and remedy the problem (question), houuser writes. "Even though there is no dial tone, the SBC line may still have current going thru it. The current can "fry" your Voip equipment."

Does length matter? Of course, we're talking about Phone cable length, a new post started early this morning by new Vonage Forum member josephsw.

In his post, josephsw asks if there is a maximum length of phone cable that should be run from the Voip router to the phone. His concern seems to be that if the cable is excessively long, the signal has further to travel in his setup, and may be causing some dropped calls.

Vonage Forum member axmonkey correctly answers that the problem doesn't sound like cable length, but maybe a bad cable, connector or jack. And fellow Forum member arcking adds: "You could always try using a new short cable from the Voip Adapter and see whether you encouter the same problems."

That's what's hot about Vonage today. Check with us tomorrow for the next edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest!!
