Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

March 13, 2007

By Daniel Connor

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

In the news, we'll read about Vonage cutting some of its international calls to one cent a minute rate. .Then, let's go straight to a Vonage Forum thread about diagnosing an audio problem with Vonage calls and another thread and that's about the Vonage V-Phone and also the softphone.. Then we'll update Vonage's stock price.

In The News

Vonage Drops Some International Calling To A Penny A Minute

Vonage says that in an effort to pass more savings to its customers, it has dropped its international calling rates to just one cent per minute in certain locations. Vonage positions the move as an even cheaper way for customers to keep in touch with family and friends in different countries.

Vonage's new international calling rates will be available for new and existing customers in the US and Canada. Areas include locations in Argentina, Australia, China, Mexico, Singapore, Israel, Poland, and Sweden. See chart below for details.

"Vonage is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to save our customers even more money," says Vonage CEO, Mike Snyder. "We have dropped our international rates as low as possible because we understand that many customers choose Vonage as a cheap and easy way to stay in touch with family scattered around the globe."

In addition to these new penny-per-minute rates, Vonage reemphasizes that it also offers free international calling to France, Italy, Ireland, UK, and Spain with Residential and Small Business Premium Unlimited Plans. Vonage includes free calling within the US, Puerto Rico, and Canada with all plans

On The Vonage Voip Forum

One of the many great things about being a Vonage Forum Member is that if you encounter a rare service disruption, you can start a thread asking other Vonage Forum Members in your region if they've been experiencing service problems as well. That way, you can tell if your technical difficulties are the result of your own equipment or setup- or whether a not the problem is wider.

That occurred to me when I read this new Vonage Forum thread which is entitled, Anybody having problems in the 615 area code today? The area code 615 is in and around Nashville, Tenn.

"My Vonage is usually very solid and I'm not sure where to start troubleshooting," writes Vonage Forum Member Laureltn, who started the thread. "I took my box to our beach house in Florida and it worked beautifully for the week. Just got home yesterday and plugged everything back in and folks have been complaining of not being able to hear me since yesterday. 

"Don't know if there's something going on with my Comcast signal or if I've messed up my setup (although it seems like I wouldn't be able to call/receive calls at all if that was the case) or if there's a Vonage issue," adds Laureltn, whose actual first name is Laurel.

Well first, Laurel, as someone who has spent most of the winter freezing his (tail) off in the Northeast, I gotta tell you I felt a bit envious when I read the part about your beach house in Florida. But we aren't talking about the weather, but whether or not there is a Vonage service issue in your area code.

Doesn't seem to be. That's what a read of a follow-up post by your fellow Vonage Forum Member Darrell_G would indicate.

"I'm in the 615 area code and have had no issues receiving or calling locally," Darrell_G writes. "Comcast has also been very solid for me, no issues whatsoever in over a year. It could be something as simple as your connections are crossed...i.e. your cable modems power plug is plugged into your Vonage adapter and vice versa," he writes. 

"Double check your connections."

Laureltn replies less than half an hour after Dareell_G's first post in this thread.

"I don't have a clue what's going on," she admits. "I have had no problems hearing folks, but they say, quote, I'm breaking up. 

"We have had some problems with our Comcast connection as of late," Laureltn explains further. "I will have to give them a call, I guess, because this is not resolving and I've reset the modems so many times and swapped cables all over the place without any luck!"

In less than an hour, Darrell_G comes back with another post in which he offers this advice:

"If you've been having issues with Comcast lately, definitely start there. Disconnect everything (router if applicable and your Vonage adapter) and connect your cable modem by ethernet directly to your computer," he writes. "Go to and choose "Boston" as your destination and post back your results.

"What model cable modem do you have, do you know how to check your cable modem signal levels?," he asks.

Now let us go back to a slightly older thread on the Vonage V-Phone and Softphone Forum section of the Vonage Forum. I'd like to do this because we haven't talked about the V-Phone and Softphone for a while now.

The thread we'll deal with now is called, Some real advice about V-Phone-softphone. It is started by Vonage Forum Member mjl55.

"I am setting up my own home office," mjl55 writes.  "I currently have Vonage unlimited/ a wireless intranet and have nothing bad to report about that service. 

"My situation is I need a separate business phone number for my new employment which allows me to work from home," he explains. "I have read this forum and understand most people say the soft phone stinks. I plan to use a desktop and will be doing heavy duty email and word processing most of the time. 

"The V phone sounds like the better choice to go with," he writes. "My major concern is how does this affect the overall bandwidth of the system. Occasionally my husband will work from home and we have no problems with his laptop,desktop,and my desktop being on the internet and him on a phone call. 

"I guess I am concerned will this potential new telephone service overload the whole configuration and should I bite the bullet and get my own cable modem installed in my own office area and then add on Vonage. Anyone have similar two home offices in use at the same time configuration?," mjl55 asks to close his thread-opening post.

A slightly different perspective is provided by fellow Vonage Forum Member Yaztromo, who I guess everyone calls "Yaz."

"I'm currently running 4 Vonage lines here, on a 6Mbps cable connection -- two regular voice lines, one fax line, and one softphone line. Everything (softphone included) works great, although admittedly we don't tax the phone system all that heavily," Yaztromo writes.

Next, Yaz describes some more details about  how he uses the softphone.

"The Vonage Softphone has worked just fine over here. I'm running it on a few PowerPC-based Macintoshes, and it's been nothing but rock solid," he states. "The only "issues" I've ever had with it have been when connecting from my laptop to flaky WiFi connections -- but that's the nature of flaky connections when used with a real-time protocol like the telephone. 

"My girlfriend and I went to a hotel a few weeks ago, and I brought my laptop and Airport Express (a tiny WiFi router), plugged the Airport Express into the wired Internet connection in the room, and made calls just like we were at home without issue," Yaz points out.

Vonage Stock Report

On Monday on the New York Stock Exchange, Vonage stock closed at $4.31 a share, which was an increase of 14 cents (+3.36) from Friday's closing price of $4.17 a share, but then again it was a rebound of 25 cents higher than the day's lowest price for Vonage stock, and that was $4.06 a share.

We've Updated Our VoIP Speed Test

Because we get new Vonage Forum Members here all the time, I'll 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 tomorrow for our next edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest.
