Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - January 13 - 15, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

January 13, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

As you may have noticed, we've changed our signage a bit. I wanted to make sure that each and every one of you Members and site visitors- and there are many more of you these days- was clear that the Vonage Forum is an independent support site, not part of Vonage. Our new logo reflects that.

In the news, we'll read about where Vonage is expanding its E911 service to. And today being Friday it is time for our In The Blogs feature here we call attention to what the bloggers we read regularly are writing about Vonage. We'll also point you to an interesting Vonage Forum thread about what many Vonage customers regard as Vonage's most economical monthly calling plan.

In The News

Vonage Expands E911 In Several Metro Areas and States

Vonage has announced it now offers emergency 911 service in over 1900 PSAPs (Public Safety Answering Points) across the country. 

In just one week, Vonage equipped an additional 41 calling centers, in over 25 new counties, with 911 calling capabilities.
In June, the FCC gave Vonage, and all Internet-based phone service companies, 120 days to create an E911 system from scratch, and provide all of its customers, wherever they are in the U.S., with E911 service. In that amount of time, Vonage worked closely with local 911 centers, also known as Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), across the country to turn on E911 for as many customers as it could.

"Vonage continues to work at break-neck pace with the FCC, regulators, Congress and public safety officials to turn up a national E911 system and will not stop until there is equal access for Vonage customers," says Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron.

Some of the metro areas Vonage has either added or boosted E911 service thus far this year include Phoenix, Arizona, Bridgeport, Connecticut, Orlando and St. Petersburg, Florida; Atlanta, Georgia, Beaumont and Amarillo, Texas and Vancouver, Washington.

"Vonage completed deploying E911 throughout the entire state of Massachusetts this past November," adds Paul Fahey, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Statewide Telecommunications Board. "It was a win-win situation for all parties involved. Vonage followed all procedures efficiently and effectively and came and talked to the right people in the very beginning about how to best go about the deployment process."

In The Blogs

We read about 15 Voip and IP-telephony-related Weblogs. Some we read more than others, but we enjoy most of them. Face it, bloggers are opinion-shapers. So today, we are going to give you a round-up of what the blogs we read have recently said about Vonage recently.

Here's what the Voip bloggers have been writing about:

Om Malik of Om Malik's Broadband Blog wishes some of the new Voip phones out there would not only work with Vonage but be interoperable with other services. He also likes the deal Vonage announced last week with Sonus in which it is buying Sonus’s gear including PSX Call Routing Server, SGX Signaling Gateway, and the Sonus Insight Management System.

Jeff Pulver of notes that at the Spring VON show in San Jose, Cal. this March, one of the key speakers will be Louis Holder, who is executive vice-president of product development at (you guessed it!) Vonage.

Tom Keating of VoIP Blog gives his thoughts on this week's announcement that Vonage, along with three other companies, was recognized by Avaya with the new Avaya Intelligent Communications Innovation Award "for their innovative approaches to weave communications into the fabric of their business.". 

Mark Evans of the Northern Telecom .. and Tech blog (he's from Canada, which is a northern country, and he writes about telecom and tech) doesn't like the idea of one large U.S. high-speed broadband service provider (hint: their name starts with the same letter as does Vonage), wanting to charge extra for Vonage callers to access their Internet lines.

Russell Shaw of the ZDNet IP Telephony blog quotes from and links to a Vonage Forum thread in which one of our members was trying to get some tips on how to use Vonage service over a rotary phone.

Andy Abramson of VoIP Watch thinks mobile Voip is coming. Andy also likes the idea of Vonage and Uniden putting out a cordless VoIP phone. "An all in one cordless phone, router and telephone adapter from Uniden has been added to Vonage offerings," Andy writes. "If anything these ongoing releases of Voip products shows that Vonage, and other VoIP players, are an attractive target for the consumer electronics manufacturers in a bigger way each year."

Rich Tehrani of VoIP Blog writes, "Vonage for example has a great affiliate program that many webmasters subscribe to and lots of sales that Vonage makes are attributable to such partners."

On Ted Wallingford's The VoIP Weblog, Ted doesn't write specifically about Vonage this week, but he seems to be a big Linux fan.


On The Vonage Voip Forum

New Vonage Forum Member duncantuna was "fishing around" for an answer to a question he had about Vonage's $14.99, 500-minutes out calling plan. So he decided to start a thread and he named it, 14.99 plan - 500 out minutes - local counted?

"I'm interested in going with Vonage .. Question on the $14.99/month plan," he writes. "It says you get '500 outgoing minutes a month anytime to anywhere in the US.' Are local calls counted in against those 500, i.e. calling my neighbor for 10 minutes would be subtracted from 500, or just true long distance type calls?" 

Duncantuna adds that he's asking because his family only does an average of less than 200 long distance minutes/month right now. 

"No idea how many local," he adds. "So it seems to make sense to go with the $15/mo plan if those 500 are all LDX."

"It's 500 outgoing total, it doesn't matter if you're calling locally or long distance (essentially they are the same with Vonage). Outbound toll free calls do not count against your 500 minutes, though," writes Vonage Forum blakadher.

Then reebok, who is our current Vonage Forum Member of the Week, posts this note of advice:

"Everyone should audit their use as I bet there is a huge amount of people who rarely go over 500 minutes (much less the less than 800 minutes it would take to bring the 500 minute plan up to cost with the unlimited plan)," he points out. "As far as Vonage is concerned, there is no local or long distance."


So What Does All That Voip Alphabet Soup Mean?

Hey, do all those abbreviations you read about in some Vonage Forum threads and elsewhere confuse you? Well, we have a handy guide to all VoIP-related abbreviations you are likely to encounter, and what they stand for. So if you see another jumble of letters that doesn't make any sense, why not hop over to our Voip Acronyms page? You can find it at

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 Monday morning with our next edition of the Vonage Voip Forum Digest, including news about our first Vonage Forum Member of the Week for 2006!!
