Michigan Cable Operator To Resell Vonage

Vonage In Print News
October 1, 2003
By Charlotte Wolter

The business model for many of the hosted IP voice service providers includes wholesale arrangements with broadband network operators who would sell directly to their customers.

Now consumer SIP voice service provider Vonage has announced a wholesale agreement with Coldwater Board of Public Utilities (CBPU), which supplies several communities and the surrounding rural areas in central lower Michigan with high-speed data, basic and digital cable TV, and dial-up Internet, as well as being a long distance reseller.
The wholesale agreement is the third acknowledged by Vonage, which has an agreement with cable operator Armstrong and earlier had a resale agreement with BellSouth for that company's DSL subscribers in the Atlanta area. The RBOC abruptly canceled that service when the arrangement became publicly known

Voip Alternatives under the Microscope

Lindy Cox, communications manager, CBPU, says the public utility considered its voice options carefully before selecting Vonage. "We have looked at providing voice service for some time. We are such a small system that it is not cost-effective for us to go facilities-based. And, no one yet has successfully formed an agreement with Verizon (the local ILEC) to resell their service."

A cable overbuilder that has deployed a hybrid fiber/coaxial network, the CBPU competes head to head with Charter Communications.

With the facilities and resale alternatives unavailable, the CBPU turned to voice over IP. "Vonage seems to be the kind of partnership that provides a win-win for them and us, as well as our customers," says Cox. "It is fairly new, and we understand that. But they have over 40,000 subscribers today and have formed a couple of other partnerships with cable operators."

The CBPU will offer Vonage's residential local and long distance calling plan ofr unlimited calls throughout the United States and Canada for $39.99 a month. The company also will offer Vonage's two small-business plans and an additional lower-cost residential plan.

An IntraLATA Desert

With Coldwater situated at least 25 miles from any major city, intraLATA charges are an issue, making Vonage's free long distance even more attractive. "The local calling area is fairly limited here," says Cox, with even calls to Battle Creek, Mich., and Fort Wayne, Ind., subject to hefty tolls.

Subscribers to Vonage cannot keep their legacy phone numbers, "but we don't see that being insurmountable, especially in the age of cell phones. People are not as attached to their legacy numbers as they used to be and those looking save on local and long distance are not as hung up on keeping their legacy numbers as others," Cox observes.

The CBPU skirts the issue of E-911 services by not selling the Vonage alternative as a primary-line service. "We don't know if people going to use Vonage as their primary service, but we not going to sell it as a primary service," Cox says. Acknowledging that the State of Michigan is looking at Vonage and other voice-over-IP vendors for possible regulation, Cox says he expects the issue will fall on Vonage, not on the CBPU in its role as a reseller.
The CBPU is working to Vonage to set up the billing infrastructure and branded interface for the service, which it expects to launch in a few weeks.
