Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

January 10, 2008

By Daniel Connor

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

First, we will catch up on some important Vonage news. We then will go straight to two Vonage Forum threads, one about routers but then there's another valuable thread featuring a list of dialing instructions for various Vonage features. Then we'll check on Vonage's stock price.

On The Vonage Voip Forum  

Vonage's Citron Predicts More Than $1 Billion Revenue Next Year

Vonage Chairman Jeffrey Citron said on Wednesday he expects the company to exceed $1 billion in revenue in 2009. Citron, who is also interim chief executive, was speaking at the Citigroup Global Entertainment, Media and Telecommunications conference in Phoenix. Earlier on Wednesday, the company said it expects 2007 revenue to be more than $800 million, lower than the average Wall Street estimate of $830.3 million, as compiled by Reuters Estimates.

New Vonage Services Draw Praise

PC World magazine is very upbeat about some new Vonage services that the company announced and demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week:

Nancy Gohring of PC World wrote in part:

"Vonage is rolling out new products and services at the Consumer Electronics Show in a bid to reverse its downward spiral.

Intellectual property lawsuits brought by Nortel, Verizon, Sprint and AT&T have distracted Vonage for the past year. During that time, customer acquisition slowed and defections grew to 3 percent in the third quarter last year.

But Vonage says it is ready to turn a corner. The suits were a weapon that the phone companies used to defend their businesses in the face of competition from Vonage, said Jeffrey Citron, chairman, chief strategist and interim CEO at Vonage. "It was a successful strategy. It distracted us and slowed us down," he said. "Instead of rolling out MyVonage six months ago, we were dealing with workarounds." MyVonage is the name of a new campaign at the company to introduce a host of services geared toward customer lifestyles.

While the lawsuits were ongoing, the company was developing workaround technology that would allow its business to move forward without infringing on the relevant patents. Vonage has now settled all four major lawsuits against it.

That has left Vonage free to spend more time focusing on its business, said Citron. It hired new engineers who designed a router, the first time Vonage will sell its own router rather than one from Cisco or Motorola.

The router has an unusual feature: a screen. It displays information about problems that the modem might have in plain language. For instance, rather than showing a flashing light like most routers, this one displays words telling users that the Ethernet cable is unplugged.

New customers will be able to buy the V-Portal router online starting Wednesday for US$9.99 after rebates.

In addition to the new router, Vonage is beginning to roll out many new features that it is showcasing at For instance, customers can now use voice-activated dialing, simply speaking a name to place a call. Customers can also send a voice message to anyone via e-mail. The message arrives as an attached audio file.

Call blast is a new feature that lets customers send out a voice mail simultaneously to a group of people. Citron anticipates that will be useful when he's in charge of calling 15 kids who go to school with his kids to tell them there is a snow day.

"We expect to roll out a new capability every month or two," Citron said.

Vonage also plans to offer another service that lets users access the voice recognition system from any phone to make a call through Vonage. The company is also testing software that would let customers make Vonage calls via software on their laptops.

Many of these services are free to Vonage customers.

Citron said that the future for Vonage will be brighter. Despite continued high churn, last quarter it had a gain of 77,000 customers, which he says isn't as good as it should be. The company has worked to cut costs, and improvements in customer service should help decrease customer losses, he said."

On The Vonage Voip Forum  

Vonage Forum Member valleycat asks a practical question, one which he adapted for the title of his Vonage Forum post. The post I am referring to is named, Do routers go bad?

"Do routers go bad? I am having jitters and in/out conversations," valleycat writes. "Cox (Cable) says that there are not lost packets. . . Vonage says there is nothing wrong on their end. .. I am confused. How long will a router last? These are intermittent problems."

Writing in a reply post, fellow Vonage Forum Member kdf55 said:

Yes routers can go bad just like anything electrical.

"If you would post what is in this sticky at the top of the forum
it can tell where your problems are coming from.

I had the same problem. Intermittent problems. Come to find out it was a bad node in the cable system. They also told me, my signal strength was great and it was except when I had intermittent problems. Just because Cox tells you it is not their problem, it may still be."

Oh I should also need to point out that one of our most knowledgeable Vonage Forum Members, roscopco, has posted a new sticky on the Vonage Forum that describes Vonage's common call features and how to do them.

Roscopco writes:

Thanks, roscopco. And now I see that fellow Vonage Forum Member valleycat feels the same way as he's written, You are the best! Please ask your wife to give you a little kiss on the cheek for me. . as in face cheek. Lol

I was just wondering how to make a conference call this afternoon and the need went away before I had the chance to go look it up.

I already have your posted cheat sheet taped to the side of my filing cabinet. . right in view.

Thanks again."
