Vonage In Print News



March 5, 2006

By Staff

What's new:The big news in calling home cheaply is "voice over Internet protocol" (VoIP) services like Vonage ( www.vonage.com ) or Skype ( www.skype.com ).

Since Voip services generally work best with a broadband or wireless Internet connection, they are recommended for travelers who want to make calls from fixed locations, such as hotel rooms or a conference room - although they can also be used from Internet cafes or wireless hot spots if you have a notebook computer. (Some specialized Voip services or phones like Vonage's Wi-Fi UTStarcom F1000 phone will work only at hot spots that do not require a user name or credit card.)

How they work: Digitizing your voice and sending it via the Internet to the other caller, who hears it on his PC's speakers, or by routing it through regular telephone lines to anyone's standard phone.

"VoIP is great if you know you'll be close to high-speed data lines," says David Rowell, founder of the Travel Insider, a Web site and online newsletter ( www.thetravelinsider.info) that focuses on travel and travel-related technologies. But "it's problematic if you're on dial-up," in part because of insufficient bandwidth, which may result in voice distortions.

Good for: Travelers with access to the Internet who want to talk a long time or have friends or associates who have Voip accounts. You'll probably want to sign up for Voip services before an international trip, since some, like Vonage, typically need a broadband phone adapter or specialized software for your laptop.

When traveling, plug the adapter into an Internet connection, then plug the standard landline phone you've brought along into the adapter, and you can make calls like you're back at home.

Alternatively, Skype allows users to sign up instantly and start calling right away, as long as they have computers that can connect to the Internet. Signing up with Skype is free, unless you want to call non-Skype phone numbers, in which case you'll need to purchase SkypeOut credits for 10 euros (about $11.90 at $1.19 to the euro).

Among the plans that Vonage offers is a $14.99 monthly plan that includes 500 minutes of calls to the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada, and a $9.99 a month SoftPhone option that allows subscribers to use their PCs or Macs to make and receive calls.

Watch out:While many Voip services allow you to talk free to other computer-based Voip users, calls that need to originate or terminate using a standard (non-Internet) phone will cost money. But since the majority of the call transport is done via the Internet and the connections into and out of the Internet are typically done as local calls, the rates are low.

For example, Skype's SkypeOut product allows users to call the United States, Europe and Asia for .017 European cents a minute (about .02 U.S. cents a minute). Vonage calls using the Vonage adapter or Vonage PC-based SoftPhone software from anywhere in the world to the United States are billed as part of your monthly minutes or cost 3.9 cents a minute if you've exceeded your monthly limit. Additional per minute charges apply to calls that terminate in other countries besides Canada and Puerto Rico.
