Vonage Joins Web Phone Fray; Wireless Wi-Fi With New Product

Vonage In Print News

December 14, 2005

By Jon Van

A new phone that makes mobile calling over the Internet easier was launched Tuesday by a subsidiary of Vonage Holdings Corp., which hopes to capitalize on ubiquitous urban wireless broadband.

It's another move by the upstart firm to challenge staid telecom giants like AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. that have seen their traditional landline phone business shrink as more customers turn to the Internet and wireless phones for communication.

Vonage's new product, which looks like a cell phone and will sell for about $80, enables a customer to make calls using wireless Wi-Fi broadband connections. Customers can pay $25 a month for unlimited calls or $15 for 500 minutes.

While not as mobile as cell phone service, the new phones enable customers to carry them in their pockets and pull them out for use in so-called "hot spots" where Wi-Fi service is available.

The reach of such hot spots is spreading rapidly. Some coffee shops, bars and hotels offer free Wi-Fi access to attract customers. College campuses, public libraries and convention centers typically offer free Wi-Fi.

Google has proposed to introduce Wi-Fi throughout San Francisco as a free service supported by ads. EarthLink made a similar proposal for Philadelphia, and New Orleans' municipal government has proposed citywide Wi-Fi as a way to get its communications system restarted after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.

"When you have Wi-Fi across an entire city like Philadelphia, this could be your mobile phone as long as you're in the city," said Louis Holder, Vonage executive vice president of product development. "This positions us exactly where we want to be."

Vonage, a pioneer in Voice over Internet protocol, or VoIP, has more than a million customers who use broadband computer connections from home to make calls all over the world. Customers have been able to use laptop computers for making calls over Wi-Fi connections. What's different about the new phones is they eliminate the need to carry a laptop around.

In the future, Holder said, Vonage will offer phones with more features, such as text messaging and e-mail, as well as voice.

"We'll get consumer feedback to see what people want," he said. "These phones operate on broadband connections, so you can push anything you want over it."

One drawback to Voip phones has been emergency calls made to 911. Like most Internet applications, the calls aren't inherently associated with a single geographic location. Last spring, the Federal Communications Commission ordered that Voip phones conform to the 911 standards applied to traditional phones.

Emergency calls made from Vonage's new wireless phones are routed to a generic center where callers are asked to give their location so the call can be forwarded to the appropriate public safety operator, Holder said. Vonage and others are working on technology to automate the location function for Internet calls.

The coming year will likely bring more innovations that put Internet telephony into more intense competition with traditional phones, predicted Mark Keeley, managing director of the telecom practice for Diamond Cluster, a Chicago-based consultancy.

"We expect there'll be free mobile voice with companies like Skype and others making money from advertising and premium services," said Keeley. "VoIP has made dramatic strides. Once its quality was poor, but within the past six months it's become very good. They're challenging the wireless carriers here."

The concept of citywide Wi-Fi is behind many planned innovations, and traditional phone companies like AT&T have worked to have laws passed that would prohibit such service. But Vonage and other Internet-oriented companies continue to innovate, using new technology, said Shane Greenstein, professor at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.

"An entrepreneur isn't going to pass up an opportunity to crack a $200 billion market," said Greenstein. "He doesn't see any reason to ask permission from anyone in Washington. Traditional phone executives are so attuned to regulatory processes [that] they don't address opportunities before running them through those processes.

"It's fascinating to watch."

Vonage's new product may or may not be a hit with consumers, Greenstein said, but either way it is a success for the company.

"Vonage will learn from the experiment no matter what happens," he said.
