Internet Calling Starts To Ring True Locally


Vonage In Print News



September 27, 2005

By Wendy Brown

Steve Bumpous of Santa Fe signed up for Internet phone service nearly a year ago, and so far he says it has worked great for him.

Bumpous likes the fact that he can take his access box with him anywhere he can get high-speed Internet service and still use the same phone number. “It’s kind of like the mark of the beast,” he said. “You take it with you everywhere .”

He also likes the cost — currently $21.95 a month for unlimited local and long-distance calls through Computer Network Service Professionals of Santa Fe.

VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a technology that allows people to place phone calls using a high-speed Internet connection instead of a regular phone line. Some people call it “Voiceover IP.”

According to a fact sheet from the Federal Trade Commission, Voip converts the voice signal from a phone into a digital signal. The signal then travels over the Internet to the person you are calling. If that person also has VoIP, it stays digital, but if the person has a regular phone line, the technology converts the signal back to a regular voice signal at the other end.

“You can call anyone in the world as long as they have a phone,” said Al Catanach , owner of CNSP.

Setting up a Voip system takes no special expertise. CNSP packages come with a phone-adapter unit, a power adapter and a network cable, and it’s all a matter of hooking them up to your computer and phone lines. Anyone who has set up a home-computer system could do it easily, Catanach said.

The technology is cheap, portable and people can keep their current phone and phone number when they switch over. Another advantage is that users can access their voice mail through the Internet and pick and choose the order in which they listen to their messages.

But there are drawbacks.

The main one is that when a Voip user loses power, they also lose their phone service, Catanach said.

TThere are also problems with 911 service, Catanach said. The way it stands now, VoIP users have to tell 911 operators where they are located. With a regular phone, the emergency system will show exactly where the phone call originated.

Catanach said he expects the problem with 911 services to be cleared up because the Federal Communications Commission has ruled that all Voip providers have to provide caller identification for 911 services by the end of the year, he said.

Also, according to the Federal Trade Commission, Voip services can also be attacked by computer viruses and worms. Some users report receiving SPIT, (Spam over Internet Telephony), a new kind of spam that sends mass voice-mail messages to your inbox.

Caroline Dennis, an owner of Grappa Wireless of Santa Fe, said her company decided not to offer Voip services because of concerns about whether the technology is ready. Dennis said she has heard people complain that their Voip service made it sound like they were talking in a fish bowl. Other people have complained about garbled communications, she said.

Catanach said he didn’t advertise his company’s Voip services until recently because he wanted to make sure the technology had improved. He has hundreds of VoIP customers.

CNSP is the only New Mexicobased company that offers Voip locally, he said. Qwest does not offer Voip services in Santa Fe, according to a sales representative.

Catanach said he runs across a lot of people who hesitate to sign up for Voip services. “They’re kind of scared sometimes because they think it’s too technical ,” he said. But he has also heard estimates that one third of the country will have Voip services by 2008.

While Internet telephony might be a bargain for consumers, municipal governments aren’t too happy about it. Cities that rely on telecom taxes to pay for all sorts of services, are nervous about the impact on their taxes bases. Internet telephony, which is considered an information service, operates largely tax free.
