Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - June 2 - 4, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

June 2, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

First, I have a couple of announcements. We have a new Vonage Speed Test. You'll find details below, right below our Vonage Forum post highlights.

Second, I wanted to let you know that May was the busiest month in the history of the Vonage Forum. Obviously in part due to the Vonage IPO, we received a total of 1,774,711 hits. Hey, June is busting out all over, so let's see if we can top that total for June!

In the news, we'll catch up on Vonage's stock, and controversies surrounding it.  Today is Friday, time for our popular In the Blogs feature. We'll also go over a Vonage Voip Forum thread about what sounded like a router issue, but proved to be something else entirely. And we'll also tell you about our new Voip Speed Test- a test in which our most frequent posters- and the ones who have helped so many of you with their informative answers- helped me to get ready for launch.

In The News

Vonage Closes At $11.63 A Share

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 $11.63 a share. Total trading volume for Vonage yesterday was 4,486,400. shares. Because the volume of shares traded was far lower than any other of the six trading days Vonage has been traded on the New York Stock Exchange, it could be that investors are calming down and are resolving to be in this for the long haul.

There's been a lot of conflicting reporting going on about just what exactly the financial obligations are of those investors who committed to buying shares in the Vonage Directed Share Program. I think it is likely we will hear more from Vonage on this issue. Keep checking with the Forum today, and even over the weekend if you wish, and we'll keep you informed.

Once again, our Vonage Stock Forum can be reached from this link.


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 that Vonage is a company with many seasoned investors, and is a company that is "trying to do right by its customers." 

Andy Abramson of VoIP Watch links to a positive review of Vonage in PC World Canada, and also links to an article in the New York Times in which the writer thinks Vonage might be acquired someday.

On David Isenberg's, he criticizes critics of net neutrality for distorting the issues and facts involved. Net neutrality legislation is a concept that Vonage strongly favors.

Preston Gralla of Networking Pipeline writes about the Vonage IPO, and about the FCC proposal to charge a fee for Vonage and other Voip services that would be applied to the Universal Service Fund. 

Jeff Pulver of promotes his "Save The Internet" initiative, which is very involved with net neutrality issues.

Om Malik of Om Malik's Broadband Blog has completed running 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 doesn't write about Vonage this week, but last week he offered 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 gave 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's stock. Last week, he wrote 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 offers several posts with his highly opinionated take on Vonage's stock, as well as Vonage's prospects.  I don't always agree with Russ, but he calls 'em as he sees 'em.

Paul Kapustka of the Paul Kapustka blog is another blogger with thoughts on Vonage's stock.

Ken Camp of the Realtime-VoIP writes about the security vulnerabilities in Skype. 

Cynthia Brumfield of IP Democracy has several posts about net neutrality, as well as about Vonage and their stock price.  

On Ted Wallingford's The VoIP Weblog, he writes about his appearance on National Public Radio's "Science Friday" show last Friday, talking about VoIP. You can download a podcast of Ted's appearance here.

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. In a new Blog I have just found called The Ramblings and Musings of Kyle J. Boddy, blogger Kyle J. Boddy (no surprise there) writes in part that "he Internet is finally working at the office, and Vonage works pretty well too." He adds that he hopes Vonage "sticks around." Well, Kyle count me in as a believer that they will.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

On a new Vonage Forum thread called Dial tone problems, new Vonage Forum Member Skutt discusses the issue he named his thread after.

"I hooked up my new Vonage service on Monday May 30 and it worked perfectly first. After a couple calls we lost the dial tone and I reset the Vonage modem by unplugging the power cord for a few minutes and that seemed to fix the problem, seemed being the key word here," Skutt writes. "Now the only way I can get a dial tone is by switching the position of the phone line out of the Vonage modem to line 2, I can then get a dial tone but as soon as I try to make a call I lose the dial tone. 

Skutt then adds that if he switches the phone line back to line 1 out of the modem he gets a dial tone again but lose it as soon as he tries  to dial a number. 

"My internet is working fine, I am using Time Warner's RoadRunner cable internet with the Terayon TJ715X cable modem and the Motorola VT2442 Vonage router," Skutt points out.  "The Vonage tech support guy thought there could be a problem with the phones I am using, brand new Uniden DCT 646-2 cordless and suggested I try a corded phone but I don't have one to try it with and am reluctant to go buy one just to try it as I am skeptical that the Uniden phones are the problem. 

He then notes that he suspects a faulty Vonage router could be the underlying cause here.

But guess what. Turns out it wasn't a faulty Vonage router after all. Making that discovery, Skutt follows up his first post with a new one in which he writes:

"Just a quick follow-up on my dial tone problem. It turned out to be our 2.4 ghz wireless phones so my wife took them back and bought some 5.8ghz phones and that fixed that problem."

Our current Vonage Forum Member of the Week Steve48 posted a follow-up with an explanation.

"Interference between 2.4 GHz cordless phones and wireless LANs is a constant problem that we see here," writes Steve48. "You don't mention a wireless component in your system, but I assume (?) that you have one."


We've Updated Our Voip Speed Test

I wanted to call your attention to our upgraded Voip Speed Test.

Instead of the simple upload/download test, this one has all the reporting that is needed to diagnose ISP issues such as Jitter and Packet Loss.

The advanced report screen will be configured in the next day or so with a "Copy to Clip Board" button so you can easily paste the results in the forums.

I would like to thank the following members for giving valuable input during the beta testing: reebok, Steve48, NateHoy, VonageTPA, Trowski and scerruti.

For those of you that are interested in the details behind the results, the following are the tests parameters:

The test is located in Washington DC.

The data.bin file for the speed test upload/download is 10Mb with 8 seconds max time out.

75,000 bytes is used to calculate the number of supported Voip lines.

Other variables:

Voip lines simulated =1
voip bytes per packet =8
voip simulation seconds =10
voip packets per second =75

If you have any questions about this test, feel free to post them in this thread.

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 our popular Vonage Forum Member of the Week feature!!
