Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

January 15, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll review what Vonage Chairman Jeffrey Citron said this week about service contracts. We'll go to this Vonage Forum thread about SimulRing and cell phones, and another thread with a router question. We'll also check in on Vonage's stock price. Just for this week, we will do our In The Blogs section in Monday's edition. And because this is Monday we'll meet our new Vonage Forum Member of the Week.



In The News

Citron Says Free Installation for Service Contracts Possible

At an investors conference in Las Vegas last week, Vonage Chairman Jeffrey Citron said one plan that could be considered might be to offer new Vonage customers service contracts like cellular phone companies do. In exchange for signing these contracts, new customers could get free, on-premise or in-home installation services from Vonage. Citron was far less specific about follow-up services such as maintenance. Anyway, no formal announcement has been made for this arrangement, so it is probably in the planning stage if that.

On The Vonage Voip Forum

On a new Vonage Forum thread that new Vonage Forum Member swbrains has decided to name SimulRing and Cell Phones..., , he writes:

"I have a question about SimulRing and cell phones:

I have my Vonage account configured to SimulRing my cell phone when a call comes in," swbrains writes. "My question is about how the cell phone carrier sees that call. My cell phone carrier allows unlimited mobile-to-mobile calls from other cell phones using that carrier and I'd like to figure out whether or not I'll be able to take advantage of this when someone using the same carrier calls my home phone.

"That is, when a SimulRing call to my home phone number is picked up on the cell phone, will the cell phone carrier see that the same as if the caller called my cell directly?," he adds.

Fellow Vonage Forum Member margulis9 offers an answer.

"Using logic, I would have to say yes to your question. Here is why, when you cell phone answers the call, it will see the sender's phone number regardless of simulring," margulis9 answers. "Put more simply, the sender's phone number does not change whether you answer at home or on your cell."

Vonage Forum Member DXN87 has started a new thread called Motorola VT2142 and Linksys WRT54G and Bittorrent.

"I have a problem when I am running utorrent the call quality drops significantly (usually the person I am talking to can't hear me)," DXN87 writes. "I have 2 computers that are hardwired to the router and 2 others that use wireless. Is there anyway around this? My internet is around 6 megs down and 768 kb up."

The first reply is from Vonage Forum Member roscocpo.

"I have the same problem and I think the only way to fix it is not to use the bittorrent applications," roscocpo advises. "When you are downloading just look and see how much bandwidth you are using both downloading and uploading."

"You are using a good program, Utorrent is one of the better ones," roscocpo adds. "If someone does now how to fix this situation I would love to know also."

And here again comes margulis9 , who has proven quite a valuable Member since he joined the Vonage Forum just a week ago today.

"Any P2P program is going to hog bandwidth on the network," margulis9 writes. "The only way around it is to adjust the bandwidth the program uses by setting the download and upload limits, or you can use the bandwidth saver feature through your Vonage web account, which will lower the amount of bandwidth that the Voip uses, but it also degrades audio quality."

Vonage Stock Report

On Friday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $6.47 a share, which was a decline of one cent (0.15%) from Thursday's closing price of $6.48 a share, but then again it was six cents higher than the session's low price of $6.41 a share. Total Vonage shares traded on Thursday reached 383,300 shares.

Meet Our New Posting Champ- And Member of the Week!

Over the weekend, Vonage Forum Member Steve48 made his 3,200th post. That was hugely impressive.

But right after that, Steve48 made his 3,201st post. That one set a record.

With that post, Steve48 became our most prolific poster, ever. He passed Vonage Forum Member Reebok, who has made an impressive 3,200 posts but has not participated in the Forum in the last several months. 

With a week like this, hey how about Steve48 for our Vonage Forum Member of the Week? Sure. No problem. Done.

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:

Jeff Pulver of Pulver.com has some photos of the Vonage booth at last week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Om Malik of GigaOm writes several posts in which he assesses Voip industry developments and how they will affect Vonage.

Tom Keating of VoIP Blog writes about the new partnership Vonage has signed with EarthLink in which they will bundle EarthLink municipal Wi-Fi services in several cities with Vonage service. 

Russell Shaw of the ZDNet IP Telephony blog also writes about the Vonage-EarthLink partnership, as well as the possibility that Vonage may offer service contracts that includes free on-premise installation.

From time to time, we like to feature interesting and entertaining posts from Blogs that are not necessarily about VoIP, but mention Vonage. In this new My blog I had found earlier this morning and it is entitled Jalpuna!, blogger Jalpuna writes, "I've pulled the plug on Qwest. I'm now officially a Vonage user, and so far, I'm really impressed. My internet phone sounds clearer than my Qwest phone ever did. It sounds the same, just a bit clearer. Vonage issued me a temporary phone number until my old number gets ported over to them, but I really suspect Qwest will screw that up. I expect my old number to be lost, and so, my new number is probably not temporary. Ah well. So be it. It's better to have a new number and no Qwest, not to mention that I'm now saving between $60 and $70 a month overall."

 

We've Updated Our VoIP Speed Test

The fact that both of the Vonage Forum threads we highlighted today featured a Vonage Forum Member posting the results of his Voip Speed Test gives me another reason 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.

That's what's hot about Vonage today. Check with us Tuesday morning for our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest.
