Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - April 28 - 30, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

April 28, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll check in on what a South Florida television station known for hard news and investigatory reporting says about the Vonage service. Today is Friday, the day for our popular In The Blogs Feature. We'll also go over a Vonage Voip Forum thread about whether a specific type of configuration a Vonage Forum Member wants to do to enable his Vonage service is possible.

In The News

South Florida Television Station Praises Vonage Service

In an article on the website of Channel 6 WTVG-TV television in South Florida, Vonage gets high marks.

"Customers said voice quality is excellent, problems are rare and you don't have to be a technical genius," the article notes. A small box is all you need. It converts signals from phone lines to travel through the Internet, and back on the other end.

The article goes on to say that from his home in western Miami-Dade County, Alejandro Perez uses Vonage for his business in Colombia. The article then points out that South Florida Vonage customers can call down there on a local (305) line for free.

"Well, I'm saving about, I would say roughly about $150 to $200 a month," Perez says.

"The converter box travels with you to make free long-distance calls away from home," the article adds. "And for a small monthly fee, friends or family elsewhere can get a South Florida area code number to call you for free.


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 said about Vonage recently.

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

Andy Abramson of VoIP Watch is very upbeat about Vonage's move in the introduce WiFi based phone services with the Cloud. "If they can successfully make this happen in the USA via the non Google, Non Earthlink WiFi cloud like communities in Cerritos, Las Vegas, Encinitas in CA, Tempe, Chandler and Scottsdale in AZ and elsewhere this could be a very big step forward for the company that is in registration with the SEC here in the USA," Andy writes. "What makes this different from Skype offering is simple. SIP. That also makes inter-connection and roaming very easy to execute on and then opens the door even more to the world of FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence)."

On David Isenberg's, doesn't post about Vonage this week, but last week he took a screen grab from an article that mentions that out of the 50 U.S. states Connecticut has the highest rate of broadband subscribers per population. You need broadband to use Vonage. 

Preston Gralla of Networking Pipeline is skeptical about the business fortunes of that big European-based softphone provider most of you have heard of. 

Jeff Pulver of writes about his ongoing battles to promote net neutrality legislation- and "save the Internet" in the process. 

Om Malik of Om Malik's Broadband Blog doesn't think that same big softphone provider Preston writes about is growing as fast as they claim they are. 

Tom Keating of VoIP Blog didn't write about Vonage this week, but he's been a little busy. Tom and his wife had a baby on Monday. Speaking of Tom and his wife he wrote last week about the different ways his wife and him react to every Vonage blip. "My wife has been using Vonage for the past 3 years with me and she complains at every little Vonage hiccup, every little 'fast busy' when dialing, every little Internet outage that brings down the phone line," Tom writes. "She used to complain about the sound quality on the VoIP connection all the time, but she has gotten better. Or perhaps she's resigned to the fact that I'm never going back to PSTN. Me? I'm like 'Hey, sounds great to me.' "

Mark Evans of the Telecom .. and Tech blog (he's from Canada, which is a northern country, and writes more posts about telecom and tech) doesn't write about Vonage this week, but he recently wrote that he isn't happy that the Canadian Radio and Television Commission failure to take strong action on telecom deregulation.

Russell Shaw of the ZDNet IP Telephony blog writes about the controversy in which Belize Telecom is accused of blocking Vonage.

Paul Kapustka of the Paul Kapustka blog thinks that even though a net neutrality provision lost a key committee vote in the U.S. House of Representatives this week, the battle for net neutrality provisions- a concept that Vonage supports- has just begun.

Ken Camp of the Realtime-VoIP writes about the Broadband For America Act, being introduced by Oregon Senator Gordon Smith. The more affordable, widespread and efficient the broadband, the better it will be for Voip services like Vonage. 

Rich Tehrani of VoIP Blog talks about Voip and how it is doing in the education space- not education about VoIP, but as a technology used at universities and other educational institutions. 

Cynthia Brumfield of IP Democracy also isn't one to give up on net neutrality. 

On Ted Wallingford's The VoIP Weblog, he doesn't write about Vonage this week, but earlier he wrote that he was interviewed about Voip in his local newspaper just outside Cleveland, Ohio. Congrats, Ted.

One of my favorite new blogs is written by Jack Decker. In his Michigan Telephone, Voip and Broadband Blog (which isn't limited to Michigan-related telecom issues, by the way), he sounds very frustrated about the net neutrality vote. "Our congress is so corrupted by influence bought by the big corporations that I am wondering if we the people will ever get any of our freedoms back before the whole government implode," he writes. "Will this grand experiment called the United States of America ultimately fail because, as in almost every other type of government that's been tried, the rich and powerful get so powerful that they in effect take over the government."

From time to time, we like to feature interesting and entertaining posts from Blogs that are not necessarily about VoIP, but mention Vonage. On a new blog I just found called The Boston Diaries, blogger Captain Napalm writes about his new experience with the Vonage service. "I was impressed with the hardware after it was delivered to my hands. The few calls I tried were fine quality wise," writes Captain Napalm. "All in all, it seems like a decent unit."

On The Vonage Voip Forum

New Vonage Forum Member booma has started a thread that he's named, Vonage and a Linksys WCG200 -- Will it work?

"I have a Linksys WCG200 which is a combination Cable Modem, Router and Wireless Access Point all in one," he writes. My plan is to attach the Vonage box (Router - Motorola VT2442) to a wired port on the WCG200. The WCG200 will assign an IP address to the Vonage box. 

"Like this...Comcast Cable --- WCG200 -- VT2442 -- Phones

Then booma adds that there are 4 other devices (PC's & Network printers) and he uses the wireless connection for a laptop or two. "Anyone have experience with this -- good or bad?"

"I don't, but it ought to work," replies Vonage Forum Member Steve48 in a follow-up post. "If you can set QoS in the modem/router to favor the Vonage box, you should (be able to) do that."

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.
