Vonage Receives $35 Million Investment


Vonage In Print News

November 25, 2003

By Susan Polyakova

Taking another step toward global expansion, Vonage announced Mon. it had more than doubled its capital base by closing a $35 million financing round led by New Enterprise Assoc. (NEA). The Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) provider, which said it had more than 70,000 lines in service and added more than 10,000 lines monthly, planned to use the investment to expand to Europe and Canada starting early next year. "We want to be the first in the [European] market," Vonage CFO John Rego told us. He said that with presence in 100 U.S. Metropolitan Service Areas (MSAs), "we have most of the country covered. We can complete the U.S. next year, and meanwhile start building networks in Europe and Canada."


It's the right time for Vonage to expand to Europe and Canada, Rego said. He said Europe was a "natural extension" for a company going global: "Ultimately, we'll get all Europe covered in 2005-2006." He said the first quarter of 2004 was also an "interesting time" for Vonage to enter Canada -- which, he said had "great" broadband penetration -- as well as to complete its build-out in the U.S., where it already covered 80% of the population in 37 states and expected to offer local numbers in all 50 states in 12 months. Rego predicted that by the end of 2004, Vonage would blanket the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and Switzerland. James Enck of Daiwa Institute of Research in the U.K. said Vonage was "likely to be on the scene [in] any [European] market with relatively strong broadband network in place" --the U.K., Belgium and the Netherlands.

While Vonage may face cultural and logistical challenges, Europe may offer key advantages in regulation, marketing and product differentiation, Enck said. He said Europe had "very few" regulatory barriers to Voip providers: "The message from the European Commission [EU] is that at the EU level, they have no problems with it. It's an issue of furthering competition, technical innovation and consumer" benefits.

Compared with the U.S., Enck said there was "no situation we could see when anybody could stand up an say 'we don't like [VoIP].'" For example, he said in the U.K., "as long as you don't sell Voip as a primary line replacement, there is nothing that can stop you." He said other advantages of entering European Voip market were:

(1) "Very straightforward" licensing.
(2) Operators regulated on a significant market power (SMP) basis. "You need to have 30% to 40% of a given market to be subject to regulation," Enck said: "There is going to be a long time before... [VoIP] guys could reach SMP status."

Vonage's Rego said while the regulatory environment in Europe differed from one country to another, "Canada, the U.K. and Switzerland are very friendly to people doing VoIP."

Rego said Vonage planned to use a strategy in Europe
similar to the one it has in the U.S. He said the company
anticipated signing the "same kind of partnerships" with
cable companies, as well as ISPs, retailers and traditional
telephone companies, adding that "some talks are on the way."

Enck said in the U.K., Vonage, which had signed deals with
RadioShack and Best Buy in the U.S., could partner with
British supermarket stores such as Tesco that offered mobile
and fixed services. He said that would "make sense" for
Vonage because "in the U.K. this model is already
established." He said that while there was "no one really
like Best Buy" in Europe, some retailers should be willing to sell Vonage product as-is or under new brands.

Vonage will have to rethink its price strategy because
of high European wireline-to-wireless termination charges,
Enck said. For example, he said, a wireline-to-wireless call
in Europe could cost 15-20 cents per min.: "That's a huge
hurdle, unlike in the U.S., where the termination charges are not [so high] and [are] easy [for carriers] to absorb.

In Europe, [Vonage would] have to offset those termination
charges. Pricing plans would have to be different because of
this difference." Enck said with mobile termination charges
subject to regulations in many European countries, they were
"coming down."

However, he said, high termination fees would remain an issue across Europe in the foreseeable future.

Rego said Vonage would "come up with a plan"
to address the pricing differences between the U.S. and Europe.

Enck said European incumbents would struggle to respond
effectively, in light of complex cultural and operational
issues. In the long term, he said, incumbents, which
currently didn't offer VoIP, could start providing such
service as part of a bundle: "There is a lot of technology
being played out, which suggests" that European incumbents
"will become more aggressive in offering discounts on
broadband products. They are not going to sit and wait until
their business is being destroyed. [They may decide that]
it's time to push the button and create a Vonage of their
own."

Offering video over DSL is one of the differentiators
European incumbents may use to offset Vonage's influence,
Enck said. He said with a friendly regulatory environment,
low competition and "very limited" physical infrastructure
required to deliver VoIP, it would be easy for Vonage to
enter the European market. "There is no one in Europe who
does what Vonage does... The market is open," Enck said.

However, he said he expected that would change
soon because several companies in Europe would be introducing similar products before the end of 2003: "Being the first mover in this market is very important because... these services are very unique." He said some competition could come from European cable operators that already offered Voip services.

In France, he said broadband ISP Free.fr also sold Voip
services: "But they are not direct competitors."

To attract customers in Europe, "Vonage could let its
subscribers in different countries call each other for free," Enck said: "That may be one of the ways to convince people to deal with high termination charges on mobile phones."

Rego said Vonage would "go country-by-country" when
attracting customers. He said the company was looking at
calling plans it could offer its subscribers to address
country-specific needs. For example, he said, in Europe,
Vonage could offer unlimited calling to the U.S. for a set
monthly fee. He said the company already offered free
Vonage-to-Vonage calls regardless whether calling parties
were in the same or different countries.
