Vonage VoIP Forum Digest - August 11 - 13, 2006

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

August 11, 2006

By Daniel Connor

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

We'll go over a newly posted Vonage Forum thread about phones that can be used with the Vonage service.. . In the news, we'll see what populous, important area is now equipped with Vonage E911. We'll catch up on where Vonage ranked among Internet advertisers in July and also find out where an auto racing team co-sponsored by Vonage is racing today. Today is Friday, time for our In The Blogs feature. We'll also bring you up to date on Vonage's stock price.

In The News

Vonage Adds E911 in Major San Francisco Suburbs

Vonage has announced that its subscribers in Contra Costa County, Ca., are now equipped with Enhanced 911 (E911) -- a feature that automatically associates a physical address with the calling party's telephone number.

In addition to Contra Costa, which includes key San Francisco Bay Area based cities, such as Mountain View, Concord, San Ramon and Walnut Creek, Vonage recently turned up E911 at more than 400 local run emergency call centers across the U.S. in less than three months -- bringing the total percentage of Vonage U.S. subscriber lines that have E911 to over 84 percent.

In June 2005, 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. Currently, Vonage continues to test and turn up new PSAPs which are VoIP-ready every day and will continue to do so until Vonage customers have access to E911.

"Turning up Contra Costa County is a great step for Vonage, as those individuals who have subscribed to Vonage's flat-rate, feature-rich calling plans in one of our Nation's tech hubs, will now have full E911 capability," said Jeffrey A. Citron, chairman and chief strategist of Vonage Holdings Corp. "In just three months, Vonage was able to equip over 400 more locally run calling centers with E911. Vonage will continue to work with the FCC, regulators, Congress and public safety until PSAPs across the nation are equipped with E911."

Vonage Cuts Internet Ad Spending In July

Vonage has been one of the top two or three Internet advertisers for at least a year, but not last month.

According to Internet marketing research firm Nielsen/NetRatings, Vonage slipped to eighth last month with some $12.603 million in Internet advertising expenses. Nielsen NetRatings gets this number by comparing appearances by various advertisers on web sites (except their own), and combining this info with published rates charged by web sites to carry those ads.

Vonage Drivers are Competing Today

Pacific Coast Motorsports heads to Watkins Glen for this Friday's 'Crown Royal 200', Round 12 of the 2006 Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series, looking to put disappointing finishes at Daytona and Barber Motorsports Park firmly behind them and recapture the form of the #89 Playboy/Vonage/Palms Pontiac Riley from their last trip to the famed New York track.

"I'm definitely looking forward to going back to Watkins as we were strong there earlier in the season," co-driver Ryan Dalziel said. "Hopefully we're going back with a package that we know works there and all being well we'll be able to turn things around from the past two races and end the season with three strong results starting this weekend in New York."

"The last couple of races have been really frustrating as we've had to spend the majority of time stuck down the running order with a competitive car thanks to the time spent in the pits," added Ryan's teammate, Alex Figge. "Hopefully Friday's race will allow us an opportunity to be back running at the sharp end of the grid and based on our previous form at Watkins, where I led for a short while, we've got a lot to look forward to. There's a lot of track time to pack in on Thursday but we'll be making the most of it to set ourselves up for a decent run on Friday."

On The Vonage Voip Forum

On a new Vonage Forum thread called Digital or analog phones?, Vonage Forum Member rkm gets right to the point of the thread he started.

"I am doing the switch. My brother has had Vonage for a few months and everything has been great," rkm writes.

"I need to get new cordless phones in my house anyway," he informs us. "So I thought I read somewhere that I should get digital phones for VOIP. Not the normal analog conversion to digital handsets. Is their a difference? Any experience or recommendations would be appreciated."

Vonage Forum Member Steve48 sees rkm's thread and post- and chooses to respond.

"I would go with ordinary cordless phones. If you're using wireless networking, or plan to, then 5.8 GHz for the cordless would be better than 2.4 GHz," Steve48 advises rkm.

"I would not go with the integrated digital Voip phones," adds Steve48. "I prefer the flexibility of having separate components."

Vonage Stock Market Report

On Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $6.64 a share, a decline of 17 cents from Wednesday's closing price of  $6.81 a share.  Total trading volume for Vonage on Thursday was tallied at 1,173,100 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, writes,  "The way the Voip market has been – a fast moving seesaw, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Vonage beat expectations (when this happens is certainly unknown but as time goes on, one would imagine this is more likely to happen) only to have companies comparing themselves to Vonage again.

Alec Saunders of Alec Saunders .LOG didn't write about Vonage this week, but last week he seemed to be wondering why the statistical trends in Vonage's stock price do not match the statistical trends in Vonage's quarterly financial report, which was released earlier this month.. He speculates on what that might mean. 

Andy Abramson of VoIP Watch writes about Vonage UK's new mobile Voip service and both the challenges and opportunities ahead. 

On David Isenberg's, he didn't blog this week, but a couple of weeks ago he wrote a powerful post that seems to acknowledge that net neutrality (which Vonage wants by the way) is not going to pass in this Congressional session or be enforced by the FCC. He then addressed to the big telcos that since you argue that net neutrality rules are unnecessary, now is your chance to prove this is true by playing fair. 

Jeff Pulver of has been writing about what he sees as the major growth and huge promise of video on the Internet. And from all his posts about the subject, it looks like Jeff has been playing a lot of poker as of late, as well as following Major League Baseball's New York Mets.

Preston Gralla of Networking Pipeline isn't one of Vonage's biggest fans.

Om Malik of Om Malik's Broadband Blog speculates about Vonage chairman Jeffrey Citron's reasons for his recent Vonage stock transactions. 

Tom Keating of VoIP Blog didn't write about Vonage this week, but has an interesting article about mobile VoIP. 

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) didn't write about Vonage this week, but last week he linked to an article in the New York Times about large carriers such as Verizon are losing local customers to cable rivals and Voip service providers such as Vonage.

Russell Shaw of the ZDNet IP Telephony blog writes that Vonage hasn't been spending as much money on Internet advertising as it has before, and then Russ speculates why that might be the case.

Paul Kapustka of the Paul Kapustka blog has a link to a video clip on YouTube that shows part of a speech by one of net neutrality's biggest opponents. Paul also has a weekly podcast entitled, "This Week In Von." 

PhoneBoy of the PhoneBoy blog wrote about the trend that some Voip providers are following about offering free calling to selected destinations- and what's driving that.

Ken Camp of the Realtime-VoIP just came back from the Voip Developer Conference, and he makes several posts about what he saw there.

Cynthia Brumfield of IP Democracy makes the point that some net neutrality opponents seem to be misleading folks by starting or participating in organizations with names that sound very much pro-consumer- and pro net neutrality by implication.

From time to time, we like to feature interesting and entertaining posts from Blogs that are not necessarily about VoIP, but mention Vonage. In the IheartSeattle I came across just a few hours ago, blogger Amy Lee Walton writes: "Vonage VoIP phone service? I’m considering switching and they have an excellent deal going on their router with ports, so I’ll have to look into that."

Vonage Feature Wish List Reaches 2,000 Posts

Let me tell you about the Vonage VoIP Feature Wish List Forum

What features would you like Vonage to offer that are not yet available? Vonage Forum Members have started threads with their requests, and this section of the Vonage Forum is where you will find these lists. I also know for a fact that many people at Vonage read this section (as well as the whole Vonage Forum site) regularly, and are open to new service feature ideas!

I just checked and noticed the Vonage Voip Feature Wish List Forum has just passed 2,000 posts. So why not suggest a feature, and help us get to that 3,000 mark!


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 has been configured 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!!
