Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - May 26 - 29, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

May 26, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

First, I have a couple of announcements. First, the Vonage Stock Forum is now open for everyone to read. You may know that I started the Vonage Stock Forum because of the Vonage IPO and then the start of Vonage trading on the New York Stock Exchange. For the first few days, the Vonage Stock Forum was accessible only to registered Vonage Forum Members. Now, I've decided to open it to everyone. So here's the link to the Vonage Stock Forum. But, remember, of course, in order to post you need to be a Vonage Forum Member- just like you need to be in order to post in any other sections of the Forum. So join up! 

Second, just before Midnight Eastern time Thursday night, we passed 23 million page views on the Vonage Forum since we started in March, 2003. Obviously the Vonage stock news has given us a lot of page views- more than 70,000 on Wednesday, as a matter of fact. It took us only 16 days to get from 22 million to 23 million page views. That's more tan 60,000 page views a day- counting a couple of weekends when many of us are away from our PCs. That's about 2,500 page views an hour, 45 page views a minute, and sheesh- almost one page view a second! No wonder why I've felt compelled to do these server upgrades

OK, enough about tooting our own horn.

In the news, we'll catch up with how a Vonage-sponsored racing team is looking at a big event this Sunday. We'll also look at Vonage's New York Stock Exchange trading day on Thursday.   Today is Friday, time for our popular In the Blogs feature. We'll also go over a Vonage Voip Forum thread from a Member with something to say about the quality of his Vonage service.

In The News

Vonage-Sponsored Andrettis To Run In Indy 500 on Sunday

Mario Andretti and his son Marco, drivers of the #1 Jim Beam/Vonage Dallara/Honda/Firestone, are all set to compete in the Indy 500. The race will be broadcast on ABC-TV, Sunday, May 28 beginning at Noon.

 "There's no question what brought me back this year -- Marco," Michael Andretti says. "But, now that I'm in it, I'm here to win it. I don't think I ever really expected that I'd get the chance to race with him. But, he developed quicker than I think anybody ever expected he would, and I'm only 43, so everything worked out. It's very special for me to think that I raced with my dad and now I'll get to race at Indy with my son. 

"We've spent the whole month working on race day, but the Jim Beam/Vonage car was still good in qualifying," Michael Andretti adds. "The weather Sunday is going to be drastically different than anything we've dealt with this whole month, which is going to be huge. Everybody is going to have to work very hard to find the right setup and adjust for the conditions. But, I think we can be a real factor on Sunday and I'm looking forward to it."

Vonage Closes At $13

On Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $13 a share. That's actually higher than Thursday's low, which was $12.63 a share. Total trading volume for Vonage yesterday was 11,410,100 shares.


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:

Rich Tehrani of VoIP Blog is somewhat upbeat on Vonage. He writes, "Vonage could be an amazing investment in the long term. Remember most of their customers are fiercely loyal. When they have 5 million (subscribers) and their marketing costs decrease how could you bet against them?" Then, Rich adds that Vonage has "the brand and reputation that comes with out-marketing virtually all other companies. That has to be worth something in the long run." Rich also writes of Vonage stock, "for the investor with a strong stomach and staying power this is a good one."

Andy Abramson of VoIP Watch gives his thoughts on Vonage's IPO, and their stock prospects. 

On David Isenberg's, he praises today's U.S. House Judiciary Committee's vote for net neutrality legislation, a concept that Vonage strongly favors.

David Greenfield of Networking Pipeline has some positive suggestions for future Vonage services. I personally think posts like this show a lot more creativity than some of the mud-slinging I've been reading in some of these other blogs. I wouldn't bet against Vonage strongly considering at least a few of these interesting ideas as they move forward. 

Jeff Pulver of doesn't think today's Net Neutrality vote is an automatic indication that such legislation will pass the U.S. Congress. In fact, Jeff explains why. 

Om Malik of Om Malik's Broadband Blog runs a poll of his knowledgeable readership, asking them to vote on a price range they think Vonage stock is headed. When I checked the results, it seems the prevailing sentiment was not as bad as some people are thinking, and writing. 

Tom Keating of VoIP Blog offers perhaps the most thorough review I have read yet about that new Plantronics headset that I know lots of Vonage Softphone subscribers are very curious about. And yes, Tom also gives his view of the Vonage IPO. 

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) writes about Vonage Canada. "In the first-quarter, Canadian sales were $4.25-million. You divide that number by Vonage's average revenue per subscriber ($27 a month X three months) and, voila, 52,000 customers," Mark says. "One thing that is a bit of a puzzler is it appears Vonage Canada has had tremendous momentum in the last quarter or two because sales for all of last year were US$7.6-million, which works out to about 23,000 subscribers using the $27 ARPU figure x 12 months."

Russell Shaw of the ZDNet IP Telephony blog gives his thoughts on Vonage's first couple of days of trading. I don't always agree with Russ, but he calls 'em as he sees 'em.

Paul Kapustka of the Paul Kapustka blog writes about how consumers are going to have to pay the big phone and cable companies if net neutrality doesn't pass. Then Paul makes the point that is a key reason why consumers need to support net neutrality.

Ken Camp of the Realtime-VoIP thinks mobile Voip is a technology with strong potential. I guess Vonage does too, with the mobile choices they are starting to offer.

Cynthia Brumfield of IP Democracy writes that since Vonage has raised a nice pile of cash from their stock sale, they at least in the position to use that money wisely. 

On Ted Wallingford's The VoIP Weblog, he writes about the Vonage F1000G WiFi phone from UTStarcom. By the way, Ted will be on National Public Radio's "Science Friday" show today, talking about VoIP. 

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 links to a great article he's written entitled "How to Distribute Voip Throughout a Home."

From time to time, we like to feature interesting and entertaining posts from Blogs that are not necessarily about VoIP, but mention Vonage. Because we ran our In the Blogs segment just this past Monday rather than last Friday, I thought I would repeat what I wrote about a new MySpace blog I just found called afmommy (I think that means "Air Force Mommy.") Blogger Kathleen fills in "Random Things You May Not Know About Me. As to Question 61, "HOW MANY NUMBERS ARE IN YOUR CELL PHONE?," Kathleen writes: "6... there are only a few people over here in Korea that I talk to often enough to actually put their numbers in my phone. All the other people I call live in the states so I definitely do not use my cell phone to call them.... gotta love Vonage!"

On The Vonage Voip Forum

You know, I continue to be amazed that the press, and some bloggers make hay of the fact that a few people seem to be dissatisfied with their Vonage service. That at the same time Vonage now has more than 1.5 million subscribers, the great majority of whom stick around month after month- in effect voting their thumbs up on Vonage's service.

I think that's good cause for ending this week with a look at a positive Vonage Forum post. On a new thread that's named Vonage works for me, Normz is very upbeat. 

"Have been using the system for a few days and made and received many calls. I've heard the belly-aching of many, but also the success stories," he writes. You need to have a little computer savvy. 

"It (Vonage) works and it will save me a cool $600-$800 this year over Bell South, Normz adds.

"I am equally pleased with the value. There are some warts -- Caller ID, no Collect Calling, DTMF Talk off, etc. But all in all not bad," writes Vonage Forum Member booma, who has made more than 100 posts in a little more than a month that he has been on the Forum.

"I guess if I run into a problem that knocks my service out and I have to end up sitting on hold for hours, I may change my tune, but so far (knock on wood) it seems like a good deal," booma says.

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. Because Monday is Memorial Day, we won't have a Digest that day. But we'll be back on Tuesday morning with our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest, including our popular Vonage Forum Member of the Week feature!!
