Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - September 19, 2005

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

September 19, 2005

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest. Wow, the weekend went by quickly.

Today we will read suggestions from Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron about how Vonage technology might be deployed in rebuilding New Orleans' devastated telecommunications infrastructure. We'll look at what one U.K.-based publication sees as likely buyers for Vonage- should the company ever decide to go that way. We'll look at Vonage Voip Forum threads in which Forum Members ask about Vonage video calling, as well as Vonage SoftPhone. And finally, we'll meet our Vonage Voip Forum Member of the Week.

Vonage In The Headlines

Vonage CEO Has "In The Trenches" Proposal for New Orleans

Tragically, a big part of New Orleans' telecommunications infrastructure was damaged by Hurricane Katrina's winds and flood waters.

Now, many folks are saying that this terrible tragedy provides an opportunity to rebuild this infrastructure- not the way it was before, but as a shining example of 21st century Internet, networking, wireless and telecom technologies..

Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron has some ideas of how to do this. He tells the Washington Post's Jonathan Krim:

"I'd come up with a plan for a trenching system," he says to Krim. Krim explains that Citron is referring to a trenching system for or major thoroughfares in New Orleans while the city is largely empty and undergoing repairs, he said. 

"High-speed, fiber-optic cables are hugely expensive to lay, so the dominant phone companies have typically been the only ones to do so," Krim writes. "Citron said the city could dig the trenches and make them available, for suitable fees to help cover construction costs, to any carrier that wanted to lay cables to provide services — including voice, digital television and Internet access.

"With more companies potentially competing," Krim says Citron told him, "prices would come down."

UK Financial Analyst Says Vonage Could Fetch $2 Billion

Global Business News, which is based in the U.K., has a new article that says that because eBay paid a bundle for Skype, that indicates other Internet voice providers could probably reap considerable sums should they ever decide to put themselves up for sale.

"The Skype sale has galvanized the sector," Global Business News' Tony Glover writes. "The internet voice market has gone critical," he quotes Keith Woolcock, an analyst at Westhall Capital as saying. "We are now in a land grab for market share where communications and media giants see internet voice as something that can be embedded in other offerings to make them more attractive," Woolcock adds.  

Glover writes that the $4 billion value placed on Skype by eBay could push Vonage’s value up to $2 billion. "Potential buyers could include Microsoft, which is trying to extend its internet voice offering or even Deutsche Telekom, which has a significant US presence with its mobile arm T-Mobile," Woolcock told Glover.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

On a new Vonage Voip Forum thread called Video Calls, Vonage Forum Member gagoots  indicates he'd really like to be in "cahoots" with a low-cost Vonage video call service.

"What ever happened to the low cost video calls that Vonage was working on with a company who was making low-cost units for them," gagoots writes.

Well, given the enthusiasm of gagoots and other Forum Members for this feature, I decided to reply. "I have inquired, I will notify you of the reply," I wrote.

And I will.

For those of you who use Vonage SoftPhone, we have a special section of our Vonage Voip Forum devoted to this service. You'll find it at:

The other day, new Vonage Voip Forum Member jgadea had a "good idea" to start a thread that he named Do I still need the router adapter?

"Do I still need to bring my router adapter if I'm using softphone," jgadea writes. "Or can I leave it at home.. If so, do I share that number I have with Vonage?"

Well, those are some interesting questions, and I see them from time to time.  I posted a reply that you do not need to take your router, and that since Softphone is a separate product it has a different phone number.

Time for our Vonage Voip Forum Member of the Week. This past week, VonageTPA offered some very helpful pointers on calling, server, and router issues. But then again, with nearly 600 posts in little more than two months of being a Vonage Voip Forum Member, VonageTPA can always be counted on for insights and input. If you want to read some of his recent posts, just click here.

As we close out today's Digest, I'd like to remind you once again about some more options you have to receive the Vonage Voip Forum Digest every day. If you go to this page:, you will see a list of RSS Newsreaders from which with one or two clicks, you'll be able to get your Digest delivered directly to your Newsreader each morning. The Newsreaders we've linked to on that page include such reliable and trusted services as Bloglines, Feedster, My Yahoo!, Newsgator and Feedburner. I am open to add others, just contact me with the info of the Newsreader.

That's what's hot about Vonage today. We'll be back on Tuesday morning with our next edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest!!
